Happy Halloween!

Good Morning!

Happy Halloween!!   One last day of showing off some of the pumpkins!  I hope these are not repeats, I had all my photos on the desktop and then put them in a folder so I knew wich ones I used.  But Dear Hubby put them all in a different folder!  So what's a girl to do!

Here is a funny pumpkin -- eating this hotdog!  to funny!!

Here is an entire pumpkin town!  Check out the rainbow in the background.

And here is a scary spider!

Have a happy and safe Halloween!

More Pumpkins!

Just like I promised...more pumkins!

First here is a weird photo of a pillowcase I made for my nieces little 2 year old daughter, that should give her nice and sweet Halloween dreams!

Then for her little boy who was born in March -- I made a Halloween bib -- got these mailed off today and she will get tomorrow -- really pushed this to the limit this year -- next year I need to be better prepared.
My sister in law emailed me a cute pattern for Halloween - I need to print it and made a few and put them aside and then I will be ready earlier next year :)
 Now back to the pumpkin parade!!
Here is a snowmand and I think Dr Seuss

A trio of Piggys 

This Dracula is really a good scary pumpkin

This is too funny -- A witch in the box and it looks like she just popped up!!

I thought this Frankenstein was a neat pumpkin and the witch on the left is neat too!

Well check back tomorrow for more of the Pumpkin Parade!
Be safe East Coasters!

Class Quilt, FNSI, Pumpkins & More

Happy Sunday Afternoon!

How have you been?  I am going to try to better at blogging again -- getting into a routine with the new job so it should be easier to find more time and since it is cooling off finally in the 40's during the day -- so not much to do outside and lots more I can do inside!!

I was teaching a beginning quilting class and they wanted to go BIG!  So here is my top that I got done during the class, it fits our king size bed, but it is actually going to be quilted and given to my niece who I promised a quilt to 2 years ago -- I hope she likes it.   

Well this past Friday was Friday Night Sew In -- I started some projects on Friday and worked all weekend on projects and here is what I have almost done -- I got 2 of these tall and skinny snowmen done, I just have to sew the binding on tonight during the Amazing Race and the World Series.

I also got 2 of these candle  mats done, they are out of recyled wool -- I have a few more cute out so I will be working on these this week  - They will be going to the craft show this next weekend.


Here are a pair of potholders I made for the Halloween Potholder Swap on Flickr -- love the witches boot fabric.

And now onto my favorite Holiday -- Halloween -- It was Pumpkin Fest in the town next to ours and here are some photos of some really neat pumpkins -- not too worry I have more pumpkin photos to post this week -- and a few more projects      The one is a cute Beach Family of Pumkins -- some folks are too darn creative!

Here is the Purrfect Pumpkin  a trio of Black cats!

Did you say send in the clowns?   Here is a cute Clown Family - I bet they all got out of one of those little clown cars -- LOL

OH and here is the Head Clown!!!  Too cute!!

This one is my favorite  it is a bouquet of pumpkins --  the vase is a gourd and the little pumpkins are the flowers TOO CUTE!
Well that is all for today!  I hope you had a great weekend!
Check back tomorrow for more cool pumpkins!
Happy Stitches!

Catching up with you!

Good Morning!

How have you been??  Life has been crazy busy here!  I did a fantastic craft show the last Thursday in September, so prepping for that I was not able to blog much.  And October has been crazy busy so far too.  Last weekend I went to Craft Camp and left on Friday and returned late Sunday night so I could go back to work on Monday AM.   I did teach classes on Saturday -- I taught these 2 cute wool journals, I got the red wool fabric for $4 for 2 yards at a quilt show we had went to back in September.  This is the snowman journal - lucky I have the sample because I sold all my kits :)

 This is my flower journal -- great for garden notes - I sold half the kits for this one, but I think I might make up a  few more of the kits and give them as gifts to fellow gardeners. 

 Then I taught a quick postcard class, this is one of the cards I made -- I also had a snowman, gingerbread boy and cardinal postcard -- it was a fun weekend.  
This past week I was nominated for President of Garden Club -- I was the only one nominated so I "won" - it is a good group and it should be pretty stress free, it is a good group.

This past weekend it rained most of the weekend, we ran errands on Saturday and yesterday I got some household chores done, not much sewing :(  Hope to get to that tonight after work!

So what have you been up to??
