Collage Sheet - By the Sea

This was originally made for my stamp line but I never made this set.  I have posted a few of them as individual images in the past.  I thought I would share it with you as a collage sheet.

Halloween is coming

One of my favorite holidays to decorate for is Halloween.  I am not really into the gory stuff but love the cute stuff.  I love the pumpkins and the cute witches.  My favorites are Charlie Brown characters dressed for Halloween.  I wait every year for the Peanuts figures to show up at CVS Pharmacy.

This weekend my daughter and I made some vintage decorations including some magnets for her locker.

They came out adorable and were super easy to make.  I bought a roll of magnet tape from Michael's.  The glass discs were from Michael's.  I found them in the florist section.  I used images from this site which I punched with a circle punch.  I easily glued the image to the glass with a Ranger glue stick which dries clear.  Here is a link to all the Halloween images.

Saturday Image Bonus 247

Unfortunately my editing software is not working again today.  They updated the software recently and now my scanner does not work with it.  I checked the provider site and several people have reported the issue.  Hopefully they will fix the issue.  I apologize for the quality of these images.  Any suggestions on new free/ low cost photo editing software(with scanning ability) for MAC to use in the interim are greatly appreciated.

Today I have six images from The Shepherd Worsted Mills copyrighted 1916. There are many sweaters in the pamphlet with patterns.  I was hoping to knit one but the and the yarns are not described.   It may be hard to duplicate the gauge.  I have included one pattern.
