2 bats down, 7 to go

My niece has asked my to make her a Halloween quilt. She is my only niece and I don't see her very often. Here you can see my daughter drawing up some bats on 'heat n bond' for me. I wanted scary looking bats and I just couldn't get them to look scary. ( You can see my full of energy son running out the back door too).

So I am sewing on bats, only two done and 7 to go. An odd number of them is good.

Here they are just fused on....


Some people don't know but, I also dabble in machine embroidery. Yes, I do. I found this wonderful spider web and spider on Urban Threads.



I've stitched it up a couple of times on the quilt.

Here one of them is done.

I am thinking of adding some ghost too. Ok, back to baking brownies and stitching up bats.

Please bring it in to show again and this time call me down from upstairs so I can see it, too! Phoebe told me to call you and tell you to come back, but that just seemed mean. :-)

it is coming out too cute!! I hate to be the one to burst your bubble, though.. Urban Threads steals a lot of their designs from indie artists around the 'net (like Sublime Stitching) Boo!! for real!
