Summer's ending.....

....and I've been busy. First, I celebrated with Grant on his birthday (with Erica too!). Happy Birthday Sweetie!


Next, I cut out a bazillion pieces for two "Any Witch Way" quilts (Quiltmaker Mag, Sept/Oct 09) combined with tracing and fusing, during which I ran out of fusible paper backed supplies and had to buy more...
Practicing those snail's trail blocks, now becoming witches' hats.


Then I spent $14.83 on thread to match all the applique pieces for the eight witches in the two quilts. Last night there was some applique work done.

I'm really excited about how this is coming together! I like the green face for the witches and the deep pink lips. This is a lot of fun! I'm enjoying my sewing room even more now that it provides an escape from football...why does football have to be so LOUD?

Oh, how cute this is going to be. The green faces are perfect.

Oh what a great job, how fun and you're so right about football loudness. Not missing that around here, not at all. But gosh, how fun this is. I love this block right along with you, Annie.

Anxious to see your finished project. That pattern caught my eye in the magazine too. They're going to be lovely ladies with their bold locks.

Oh, I loved those witches in that magazine! It will be fun to see them actually stitched up.
