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!



Ghastles fussy cut &
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.
 Our schedule for today is
