Something Wicked this way comes.......

It's my turn!  Yeah!  I am so excited.  Thank you Madame Samm and Wicked Wendy for all the work and organizing you have done for us!  Be sure to check out madam Samm, cuz there is a give away there for sure, a really good one! 

WARNING!  lots of pictures.......

Oh how I love Halloween.  LOVE, LOVE, LOVE Halloween!  I love old scarey movies.  I love all the chocolate and smarties!  I love walking with the grands to go trick or treating.  And I love having the neighborhood kiddos come trick or treating to our home.  Even those teenagers with their pillowcases! 

So the Wicked blog hop is almost over and its has been AWESOME!!!!  so many new ideas I want to do......  So here is my take on Wicked!

I told you last month that Vicki and I got together to sew, sew, sew.  so since then, I have been finishing, finishing, finshing!  LOL..... 

 
First off, a UFO #1!!!  Vicki and I did this top from a couple of years ago.  all from our stash.  lap size. 50 x 70, 6 1/4 yards used.  

Next up is a pattern from BHG It's called Pretty Pumpkin Tablecloth for fall.  I tea dyed the muslin we used and had lots of Black wool, so I kitted it out for the both of us.  Love it.  It was not a UFO.  but it is finished!  NP (new project) #1

Next up, pincushions!  yeah!  Love pincushions.  My friend Charlene surprised me with this pattern!  it came with the wool.  Thank you Charlene!  I love them.
there was wool in the kit to make 4 cats.  I shared with Vicki while in Williams.  thank  you Charlene!  they were fun to make and super easy. 


The bat pincushion is called  Sew Batty .  found that at Monica's bead and quilt shop in Palm springs.  He has soooo much personality.  Love him! NP #2, 3, and 4.

Next is my October wool BOM:  I have loved this BOM.  each month I so look forward to my envelope coming in the mail.  it doesn't take long to work it up.  And the buttons.  Oh. My. Goodness!  they are porcelain.  they are just beautiful.  UFO #2


The skeleton gloves were a gift from Vicki!  Love them.  My grands are so jealous.  LOL....... 



This is from Primitive Stitches . Be careful it's a wicked place!  Wicked good!!!!! I loved making this project.  Super quick and easy.  However I did not want to do a satin stitch for the spider.  I used 2 buttons!   Not a UFO.  NP #5



this quilt I have been wanting to do since 2010!  does that make it a wannabe UFO?  Toni and I got together several months ago and made kits for our friends.  Charlene and Toni have theirs done - quilted, bound and hanging up!  I just have my top done.  but I love it none the less.  it's from the Quilt Sampler Magazine Fall 2010. 

 
This quilt is from Quilts and More Fall 2013 Magazine.  This was a project Vicki and I worked on together.  It was a little more work.  but I love the way it turn out.  Needs to be quilted. 
 
 
I have fallen in love with this pattern.  do the hustle  Super duper easy.  It ends up being a lap size quilt.  This was a last minute, decide we had to do it, had the charms already quilt that Vicki and I wanted to do.  Still needs to be quilted. 
 
 
Does this quilt make you smile?  Charlene and Toni found this pattern and thought I needed it!  hmmmmm.......  YEAH!!!  I immediately called Vicki and told her we had to do this quilt.  We decided to pool our Halloween fabric, we already had the background.  And while we were in Williams, we went for it.  Click on the picture and it will enlarge it.  You will see the witches shoes and hats in the borders!  Which Witch? goes to the blog.  scroll down and you will see a Christmas version, which is also in the pattern.  Way too cute!!! 
 

Oh my, do you think he likes my dish towel?  Happy Halloween TeaTowels  from Bird Brain of course!  I think it was last month Cyndi, Toni and I went down to the Tucson show.  Bird Brain was there and so I bought some tea towels and this cute pattern.  So easy to make.  NP #6


OK, last picture!  promise!!!!  I made this top probably 4 or 5 years ago.  I am sorry, I can't find the pattern.  So I don't know the name of it.  I remember when I first saw it, I immediately thought of Halloween fabric.  The ghost in the border will glow in the dark.  lap size!  it's 48 x 60. 5 1/4 yards used from stash.  UFO #3. 
 


Now for the give away!  who doesn't love a give away?  I LOVE give aways!  I am giving one of the cat pincushions.  I only ask that you follow my blog.  Please make a comment about what your favorite thing is about Halloween.  US residents only please.  Sorry but the pin cushions are heavy.  I will use a random generator to pick a name.  I will do this on Friday.  Good luck everyone!!!  You know I feel bad about saying US residents only.  So if I pick someone from another country, I will send them something too.  not sure yet, but it will be cool.  So we will see how the numbers go.  Thank you all! 

Here is the schedule for Tuesday.  Enjoy!  Have fun and leave lots of comments on their blogs.  it's like a pat on the back.  Makes us feel warm and fuzzy!

  36. Oh my goodness! You have been one busy lady. Love your wicked projects and the Which Witch always makes me smile. My favorite thing about Halloween is that our small town has a main street trick or treat on Halloween. They block off the entire four blocks of our business district and all the little ones trick or treat the businesses. They have games and prizes. So fun to see all the costumes.

  50. WOW...that is one spooktacular parade of Halloween...it hard to pick a favorite but I think it would have to be the quilt with the witches shoes...thanks for sharing!

    ReplyDelete
  51. Mrs. Batman ~ I don't even know where to begin. The goodies just coming and coming and coming. Wow! You certainly get lots accomplished. The projects are absolutely amazing. I am enjoying seeing everyone's creations. We did celebrate Halloween and it was never a big deal - just some sort of costume and of to trick or treat. We didn't decorate and with my children I think we had a pumpkin once. I did make costumes for them when they were young. They had matching terry cloth bunny rabbit costumes complete with mittens one year. I did buy a tiny bit of Halloween fabric this year to make a mug rug and it's not cut out yet. There's next year.
    I read about your wonderful trip. I'm sorry you fell and had a fiasco with the key. That is so irritating and especially when you have an emergency to get back in the room. Yikes! Sounds like you had fun.
    I could comment and comment and comment about each of your stunning projects. I have the pattern that is for Halloween/Christmas of the shoes. It is adorable and you did a fabulous job.
    Thank you for participating and sharing your finishes with us. Your creativity is amazing. I hope to see you in more hops very soon. You are very generous with your giveaway.
