Ghastlies Anyone?

Happy October! Did you know that this October has five Saturdays, Sundays and Mondays? I heard it said this only happens every 823 years....NOT! If a month has 31 days and the 1st falls on a can figure out the rest!:) All I care is this October has FIVE weekends!! WhooHOoo!:) Of course my favorite day of October is the last's a work day so I'm trying to think of a costume I can wear and cut fabric at the same time...any ideas?

In the meantime I made a ghastly bag for the didn't do a bad job...
...I made it out of The Ghastlies!:) I love this fabric, love the colors.... the characters.... the cemetery and the trees...I especially loved making this for my kiddo....she almost didn't get it because I really, really wanted to keep it!

Several pockets and a carabiner on a twill tape loop inside....please girlie...keep your eyes on this at all times!!!

This past weekend was my pal Sally's birthday...I heard she likes roosters and do I! Happy bday pal!

I swore I wouldn't sign up for anymore swaps for a while...I lied. Come and crazy quilt squares...who could resist?

Here are my door 3.5" bitties...I took artist license...I say these beads and felt look like mice...what do you think?

How about a few crazy quilted 3.5" squares? This is the first time I have tried a crazy quilt square...they really are quite fun and liberating. You should go visit the Bitty Block Committee and see the other lovelies that are going to be flying around the world! I can't wait to start getting soft mail again!

Another new project...hopefully finished by the 16th because I'm participating in the Bloggers' Quilt-UberFest which is a block a day for 16 days...go check it out!

Stay tuned for the first finished blocks and 1600 inches of least I thought it was fun!
