Something Wicked This Way Comes...

It's a Wicked Blog Hop and I'm invited! WooHoo! Do you see me dancing with joy here?  Because I am.

Many thanks to the wonderful Wicked Wendy and Madame Samm for putting this together and cheering us all on.  Witch hats off to you!

Now for my wickedly perfect Halloween projects:

I bought a charm pack of assorted Halloween fabric last year, and never used it. (oops!)  But I found a cut and sew quilt as you go pattern, and knew it was perfect.  I think it went together quite nice.

Another Halloween craft was the candy corn wine bottles you might see popping up everywhere.  It was my first time spray painting (I made a little mess.  *grin* )  but I had oodles of wicked fun.  Now they are sitting on a tray surrounded by real candy corn where everyone can enjoy them.  And thanks to my friend for the wine bottles! ;)

The candy corn bottles are supposed to have an ombre effect - I think they do.  Don't they look tasty? :D

I hope you enjoyed your stop on the hop, and please visit my other wicked friends today:

October ALYoF Finish!!!

Finally a cute little finish to share!  My goal this month for A Lovely Year of Finishes was to finish a baby quilt.  And I did it! Thank goodness, because I've been slacking on finishes and posting them.  Here are some pictures before I washed it:

And some after, in it's crinkly goodness:

The back is an orange flannel, so it's perfectly snuggly.  I love it so much! I love baby quilts, even if I have no express purpose for making them.  Really, they are just too cute. :)

Now to finish my latest project.  No peeking!! :)

Crocheting and Football

My husband loves watching football on Sundays, especially the Packers.  Today, I multi-tasked.  I watched some football with him, and crocheted!  I got some flower scrubbies done for a craft sale I am in this coming Saturday!  I am so happy to have gotten something crafty done with spending time with the hubs. :) Two birds, one stone!!!

They vary in colors - yarn and scrubbies both.  These are just some of them. :)

October A lovely year of finishes

I have this baby quilt that I need to finish for October.  Need, not want.  Really.  So I am making this my goal and forcing myself to do it.  No more stalling!!!  Now that I am feeling better, and am not in pain from my tonsils being ripped out of me (doesn't that sound more dramatic than just a tonsillectomy??) I am good to go on the sewing front.  So here is the little baby ready to be finished:
