Boo! to you

Halloween has arrived.  This year is flying by faster than a witch on her broom.  Crazy!

I have finally used this Label Crew project from last year!  I love it.  Very quick, and very cute! 

At first, I thought that these were going to be a bit small for my purpose, but turns out they hold quite a bit of candy....just right for the kiddos I am sending them to.  You can see one of them has some Bath and Body travel size products stuck in there for a college care package, too.
Have a great Halloween!

It's a Bling Thing

Sighh...I made it.  I put the last stitch in "It's a Bling Thing" on Thursday night at about 10 pm.  We made the drive to Indiana with the wrapped up quilt in the trunk on Friday.  Attended the beautiful ceremony on Saturday afternoon.  It is official, Amanda and Cory are married.  Many hugs and kisses their way.  It was a beautiful ceremony and I hope this beautiful quilt blesses their home. 

Fabric:  Fandango by Kate Spain of Moda Fabrics

Pattern:  "It's a Bling Thing" by Heather Mulder Peterson's Let the Good Times Roll

It feels nice to finally have something to post!  I hope you all are well.  Many hugs your way, too.

All pinned up

Well, thank you for your many, many well wishes.  I haven't tried any of the blogger suggestions as I just didn't feel like doing much this week.  Apologies again for not getting back to you...I will get back in the swing soon, just stick with me.  I finally started to feel a bit better yesterday, which was lucky because we took a family trip to the orchard and a hay ride out to pick the best pumpkin ever.

Then I came home and started working on this quilt.  Collection:  Fandango by Kate Spain; Pattern can be found in Heather Mulder Pearson's book Let the Good Times Roll book.  I had the blocks all together, so I added the borders and sewed the back.  I woke up this morning feeling even better.  Today I have been working on pinning this monster and getting caught up on laundry!  But, that is a different monster all together, isn't it?

Anyway, the wedding that this is suppose to be a gift for is the 15th of October....13 days away.  Pressure is on!  Will I finish it on time?  Stay tuned.
