Boo Hoo!

It's done!
With plenty of time before the shortest commercialised celebration in the year!
My BOO! cushion. 
I used the Read Between the Lines pattern from my favourite book, Pretty in Patchwork Holidays, but tweaked the size and how many strips I added to the sides!  
All the fabrics except the skulls on the back were from my stash and even the Geekly Chic skulls were on sale at Village Haberdashery, so it was a bargain project!
The pattern was the September project for the Sew Along on Threadbias, but as I had already made the HoHoHo cushion, I thought I could use some the the hoard of halloween fabrics I've got to make a BOO.  
And, it will be my entry for Le Challenge this month, with the theme Thriller. (Please let me remember to link it up on the 15th!!) Thank you Nat for reminding me, I'd forget my head if it wasn't screwed on!
It's finished up to a lovely 18" in size, although after the last two cushions I've made it feels rather small!  
I even managed a wonky fmq spiderweb on two of the corners (don't look to close!)
So, I'm off to compile my list for the Q4 of the FAL 2013 and unfortunately there are quite a few repeat offenders on my wip list!!!
