- adj. Evocative of Hallowe'en; creepy, spooky.
Sorry, no etymologies found.
Anyway, here it is - it stitched up very quickly, as expected and will make a nice gift for some Hallowe'eny friends.
So the piece is done in autumnal, slightly Hallowe'eny colours with spider webs stitched in each square and some inspirational words and faces.
Alex Castellanos, over at The Situation Room on the same network, agreed, with an Hallowe'eny mental image for us all to enjoy:
One of them has something Hallowe'eny on it (the bat) but for the rest, I have resisted, despite having an entire set of Hallowe'en themed confetti - pumpkins, bats, black cats, and two other things, I forget what.
What I think is cool about this one is not only its unusual duotone coloring throughout the black and orange are all kinda Hallowe'eny, aren't they? but the fact that the story itself works as both comedy and pathos.
