WICKED Blog Hop!

 Can you believe it? My day is finally here! 
     If previous hops are any indication,,we are in store for some incredible creations. To paraphrase,,,something wicked this way comes  Mwah ha ha ha!!!!!

      I only have one block to show at this point,,,I've been fighting with computers, and internets and retrieving files from my old computer. GGGGRRRRRR. (And I've been fighting with a giant Dalmation for the past 2 weeks too---more on that next post.)

      I bought myself some Ghastlies when it hit the market this year. I love it, think it is too much fun! My daughter came home for a visit; spotted my Ghastlies, and gasped. "Oh Mom, I love that fabric! Where did you get it, and what are you doing with it?"
          Well,,,,when/if she checks her Momma's blog, she'll see her pillow top for her new couch!

waiting for a backing


      My block came out a perfect 12 1/2 inches square,,and that's a first!
I've got another little somethin'somethin' almost done as well. If I get it finished up, I'll add it on, otherwise it'll be in a couple of days.

Under the Weather

    I can't believe it's been 2 weeks since I've posted! What a whirlwind of good, bad, ugly, and everything in between.
     I developed a severe lung infection, and have spent the past 2 weeks on a nasty antibiotic that's had me unable to do anything but rest.
     I've received a commission to make a Halloween costume for a friend's partner to wear at an event taking place at their resort while they're on vacation in Jamaica mon! He is going to be one very large dog. I've managed to get the pants sewn together; just have to get the elastic & drawstring in the waist casing & hem them. I'll cut out the top/hoodie tomorrow, and hopefully have it finished by Saturday. 
    My camera has gone missing, but I know it's here somewhere. Once I find it, I'll get some shots loaded here.
     I've managed to get some work done on my block for the Wicked Blog Hop, and think I finally have my plans down pat for a pincushion swap I'm doing on Threadbias.
     We celebrated Thanksgiving this past weekend, ending a week's vacation staycation to celebrate our 35th wedding anniversary. We did a few day trips, and spent one glorious day in the car enjoying the beauty of the fall colours--absolutely breathtaking! I saw colours in the leaves this year I've never seen before.  Which leads me to....
      I hope you have all been enjoying the LEAFS ME HAPPY Blog Hop organized by Madame Samm at Sew We Quilt and Cherry of Cherry Blossoms Quilting Studio . The colours and work done by all the quilters (some even made their own fabric!) has been awe inspiring. Madame Samm has 305 pins on a special Pinterest board from the hop. You should check it out.
      And that's it for now.
