Hocus Pocus .... Happy Halloween....!

I have continued to be a stitchen' fool! I'm telling you, those 2 (two) little thimbles are a dream. My fingers are nice and soft!

If you recall, I had set a goal to finish the Hocuspocusville quilt by October 31 of this year! I wasn't sure I would make it! It was a bit tight, but I made it with moments to spare.

Block 6



Last but not least, block 11


I always keep the easiest block for last. It's probably psychological, but it's a great motivator!

I wish you all a safe and spooky Hallows Eve! Thank you for stopping by!

Stitchen' away....!

Indeed, I've been a stitching fool! My goal was to have samples done to decorate the Shoppe for fall. Mission accomplished!

I've fallen in love with Stacy West's designs - Buttermilk Basin. She has such a sweet collection of primitive stitching designs.

Ready? Oh, the centers are much darken than shown in the photograph. Gotta have that prim look!

Voici Moon, Cat & Jack


Owl, Jack & Bat!


Three Stacked Pumpkins!


Last but note least - Halloween Blackwork!


Told you so!!! LOL

Thanks for stopping by! I still have lots to show you on the stitching frenzy front!

Guess What.....?

That cross hatching quilt is still not done! So much for wanting to finish it that day! It really is a lot harder than I thought! The hatching is all done, it's just the baskets that I have no clue what to do in them. The inspiration will come!

You know, machine quilting inspiration and/or determining the quilting designs is what I find the hardest. I just do not spend enough time with Penelope to have it come to me naturally. Sigh...!

On the quilting front, I've been a busy bee!

I recently finished this little gem!

BOO! I love Halloween!

This is a pattern by Stacy West of Buttermilk Basin! Her patterns are just so adorable! Love her primitive style!

I used reproduction fabrics with Jan Patek's Blessing line. I love that poison green!

I have another one to show you! But first, I must machine quilt it!

Thanks for stopping by! Off to do a bit of quilting!
