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!
