I've lost my steam on this one. This is my last block on my "little stitchies" BOM. Maybe I'll get it finished in December. hahaha

Some spider webs stitched on my Halloween quilt top.

A button added to Mrs. Wilbur's Christmas gift.

Dr. Seuss and spiders.

A Christmas gift for my son's teacher, Mrs. Wilbur. She is wonderful and so good with my son. I owe her a lot. Teachers just amaze me.

The school has Dr. Seuss day once a year on Dr. Seuss's birthday, so I figured Mrs. Wilbur could carry her 'Cat in the Hat' purse on that day. I still need to add a button for the closure, but could not wait to show how cute it turned out on my blog.
I finished up all the blocks for my Halloween quilt. They are all sewn together. Now to add some embroidery. I'll be hand stitching spider webs and a few spiders on the cream areas. :o) Oh, then adding a black boarder, but that won't be for awhile.

Happy stitching and sewing!

still in Halloween mode

I still feel like I am in Halloween mode. I've been working with orange, black and white, putting the little blocks together to make Jacob's ladder blocks.

As of right now I have 8 sewn together. In these photos they are not sewn together yet, but I just couldn't wait to see what they'd look like.

And more Halloween looking things I've been working on. The Hoopla swap stitching. My partner loves skulls. So I cross stitched up a skull pattern I found on "skull a day".

This is what I had started out stitching up, but ended up not liking it too much, so made it the back on the hoop.
