Wicked.....

Well it is hard to believe it is almost the end of  October. Where does the time go to?
 I want to thank Wicked  Wendy  for all her hard work for putting this blog together.And also to Madame Sam our cheerleader.
 Time to show my Halloween pieces. Halloween is a time that I don't do many crafts or decorate that much.. Another reason I enjoy these blog hops. A reason to make new and interesting things.


My grand children last Halloween. They went to Flordia this year for Halloween. I can imagine the fun that they had. Can't wait to see their pictures.


I found this mug rug pattern free on The Connecting Threads sight. A nice project to sew on a Saturday afternoon. I also had time to make this next piece. Another free pattern I found from Fave Quilts.


It looks better on the wall than my picture took. I have been practising my embroidery and doing a little machine quilting.
These are a couple of pieces that I did last year that I really like. A cross stitch piece that I turned into a pillow. A gift to a friend that I used to babysit. She loves Halloween. Her favourite holiday to decorate.

My first applique table runner that I did when I bought my new sewing machine last summer. 


I also have a little give away. It is a little late for this Halloween but if you are like me when you pack it away and bring it out the next year, you forgot you have it and get excited. I do that with Christmas gifts that I get and pack away and forget all about them until I bring them out next Christmas. It is like getting that gift twice.



So just leave me a comment for this little wall hanging. Here is the schedule for the Wicked Hop.

  51. I had to laugh when you said you forget about things you put away and then when you get them out again, it's like getting a something twice. My grandmother bought her Christmas presents from her husband to herself, had them wrapped and put them under the tree. He had no idea what she had bought. On Christmas Day, she'd open them, and just open them and say, "Jack, thank you. How did you know what I wanted. Thank you very much." She acted as if she had no idea what was in the package. Up until she had a stroke, she had a good memory. We never knew if she really didn't remember or if she was a great actress. We never asked her - it was just very comical. Your projects are amazing. I love your embroidery. I haven't made anything Halloweenish yet. I did buy some fabric this year with idea in mind and have done nothing as of yet. I plan to make just a small mug rug for starters. You are very generous with your giveaway. Someone is going to be thrilled. Thank you for participating in the hop and sharing your amazing creativity.
