Working on new Halloween Quilt, a painted wall hanging quilt

This is the Halloween quilt I am working on; is painting with acrylics onto muslin with Halloween cotton fabrics around it.
This is a picture of how it is going so far, the picture is of a Kitty looking back into the window of his home with a creepy pal spider.
I am using a wash of colors for the back round so that you get the idea its dust and I have cut out my blocks that will go around the picture of the cat.
I will seal the acrylic paints but it probably still will not work to wash this quilt in a washing machine.

These are photos of close ups of the cat and the spider so far, I have really enjoyed working with the acrylic paints on the muslin.

Crafting Frenzy Wendnesday

I just finished another set of crochet baskets; the black one is a mini and the larger one is small but larger that the mini basket. I used my 10 1/2 hook to make both these baskets, and no pattern just idea out of my head. I did a triple stitch and a double with a single to give each basket some height.

Then I decided to make another jewelry box; this one will also look aged I am now in the process of decoupaging it right now and will use some acrylic paint to stain and and a touch of walnut stain.
Would you also believe I am also working on another crochet/braided rag rug this time I am using a 6/6 hook and it will be a large rug; plus I am working on a Halloween quilt, that will be a walling hanging quilt but I want to save those for next week and it is a bit different quilt to stayed tuned for those upcoming projects.
