Boo! And a Giveaway

All done! Five Halloween hangers/table toppers.

Camera as usual doesn't do them justice but I love them..especially this one!

The was the wonkiest of all the panels..and I was going to just give up, but!  As I looked at the pumpkins, I thought to myself...oooooeeerrrrr.  These guys have def. been out in the sun too long.  Not many branches between this family tree!

See what I mean??/

They are really creepy and I would hate to meet them on a dark night!  So it came to me that these guys needed was a crazy pumpking patch I chose fabric with mad squiggles AND made each border wonky.  The actual finished item is square (or rectangle) but the borders are a bit crazy.

And it was when I was making this that the whole quilting thing hit me.  This is what it is about. Having fun. Playing.  Using your imagination.  Stuff worrying about wonky bits: about what others would think about it.  It is about me having fun pure and simple and people who think I should take it seriously...well you do it your way and leave me alone to play!!!!!

They are all looking for a home where they can play with your halloween celebrations.  If you want one, pm me.  All donations go to the Irish Cancer Society.

Now, a final thing.  Do you remember when I made this?

Well this was designed by The Snowflower Diaries.  Lovely free designs.  The owner of her blog is now having a giveaway to feel free to pop over and have a look!

Right off to explore quilting as you go!!!!  Enjoy what is left of the weekend!
