Halloween With A Dash Of Christmas Give Away

My final give away of the month. Just leave  me a comment and become a follower, I will pick the winner next Thursday. Thank you so much for all the nice comments and encouragement. It is so great to have a new group of "friends" in blog land.

There are always good ideas in here.......


something I made complete with googley eyes.....


just in case you are inspired to get going on some holiday presents, I will give you a head start. Good luck!

FYI.......I saw this in the new American Patchwork and Quilting! I totally missed out on the Flea Market Fancy when it came out....I won't this time!


Our get away was a lot of fun...Jane is making a commission using a woman's old clothes for her son. Yes we are talking moo moo's.....don't you love the parrots?

I personally think Bailey found the best use of the fabric...a dog bed.

The selection of fabric got aaaaah, more interesting......I can't even imagine wearing this She has her work cut out for her.

Terry finished up her soldier quilt and will take it home to quilt on her new long arm.


Christine power sewing as usual...I forgot to take a picture of her finished top. I will put it in a future post.

Cheryl made 2 casserole holders and a commission piece where she made photo transfers and put them inside the shawl (I can't remember the official name). I think this is such a great idea to be wrapped up with your family.

I will post about my projects tomorrow, I have one that I need to finish up before I show you.

Thanks Cheryl for another good time and good friends.

  12. Lol those exercising cats are the funniest thing!!! They're making me laugh so much! Little Bailey is such a sweetie guarding the fabric. Is FMF really being released again? I've heard nothing, I'm in a panic it'll sell out before I get my hands on some.
