Wicked Witchy Poo!!

Check out my Wicked Witchy!  Isn't she just adorable, er wicked?  She was a fun one to make.  Just ask me where I'll be using her for decoration.  Umm, right here beside me!  Thats where!

She's a pattern by Snugglebug Blessings.  Don't you just love the pumpkin on the end of her tail?  LOL  A great pattern.

Wow has the weather started changing where you are?  Its been really (brrrr) cold at night.  It was perfect went I went to work this morning and back again to the 80's when I got off work.  Typical of Southern Illinois.  I've heard people comment on the fact they need to run their heaters in the car on the way to work and their air conditioners on the way home from work.  Freaky!

Back to working on my quilts.  Yes, you heard me right, I work on at least 2 at a time and now I'm working on 3.  *sigh*  I do the same thing when I read books. 
Bye for now!  Big Hugs!

Autumn Angel

Autumn Angel
Before I say anything else, I wanted to thank each and everyone of you who bought my handmade goodies.  I was  overwhelmed  by the response I got.  LOL!  My oh my. 

I'm sorry to those of you who'd like to order, but I take so much time with my creations, I don't think it would be enjoyable to me if I made bunches of them.  If you email me, I can put you on the list to be the first to know when I'll be putting something up for sale.  Again, thanks so much!  It feels so good to know you appreciate my skill and enjoy my items so much that you want to buy them.  Big Hugs!!

Now, I wanted to show off my dolly I made.  She is perfectly grungy and sweet at the same time!  She's made from a Bird in the Hand Primitives pattern. 
I just love this time of year.  Autumn has so many possibilities!

Right now I'm making a list; have to have a list!  I need some fabric and supplies from Joanne Fabrics.  It is murder if I don't have a plan when I go.  I'm very easily distracted and end up spending tons of money, but coming home with very little of what I went shopping for.  Ugh!  As it's an hour or more drive, it can get frustrating!  Not to mention expensive!

A door quilt is my next project.  I received so many compliments on my door quilt celebrating 4th of July/ Freedom that I want one for Fall, too!

Bye for now!

Come into my Parlor...

Black Widow Spider

"Come into my parlor ..." said the spider to the fly.  Cue scary music.  This spider was so fun to make.  Thanks goes to Brenda Sanker/The Vintage Polka Dot for making this pattern available.  Its a keeper.  Thanks also goes to my wonderful DH for making the base and stand.  He also is my craft critic.  I made 2 and they are 13 inches and 16 inches respectively, from base to signage.

                         The Batty Boys

These vampire bats are grungied to the extreme and quite scary with their fangs.  They are a Chestnut Junction pattern.  I made 3 of these.  Despite how they look, they smell good, too!  *snicker*

Hallows Eve Scarecrow

My scarecrows are so spooky!  OoooOoo!!  Made of grunged burlap and sticks from the yard Mr. Scary is on the J.O.B.!  He's been stuffed with moss, decorated with Sweet Annie and has some friendly crows keeping him company!  He has a Jack O'Lantern head made of muslin, painted, sanded and stained with features stitched out of floss.  His sign is made of muslin, also stitched with floss, and reads, "Hallows Eve".  Even though he's grungied and dirty looking, he smells of cinnamon.  Made from a pattern by Dee Duncan.

Anyone interested in purchasing any goodies from me, please e-mail me at for details.  I'm in the process of choosing an Artisan Directory to join, so stay tuned.
