Sew Spooky!!!, 2012 NewFO Challenge, and Applique Thursday

I've been hunting through all my fabrics for some possible oranges and blacks.  I just bought this cute pattern and buttons for my next "Start" and "Applique Thursday" project.  After I received it, I realized that there is also a fabric pack of cute items for the sidewalk and doorways.  Yep.  I had to have that as well.  It should be here in a few days.

The Sampler Society #14 and a Road Runner

Block 18. 

Road Runner

Sorry about the quality of the photo.  I had to take it out the window.  He was really spooky.
Regina was just asking me about Road Runners the other day.
If you click on the picture, you can see a larger version.


Mick's bucket garden

This was several days ago.  We now have too many red tomatoes.  I'll be making Miga's tonight.  That should take care of a lot of the small ones.  Mick has done a wonderful job.

Time to whip out that finishing kit.  This is where I feel the pressure...Yikes.
I know I'll finish at least the flimsy.

I won these wonderfully bright fabrics from Sew Happy Geek  Go check out her blog.  Jenna also host the Manic Monday Linky Party.  Since I'm Manic most days of the week, I try to link up at least on Monday....grin.

Nature has it's Way....

The storm before last did some pruning for us.  It looks like a good tree, but the base was one big hole.  We had it marked to cut down.
Vince of Judy's Patchwork Time blog said these grasshoppers bite.  Yuck!  I didn't touch it.

And are you ready for this???  An actual bloom in my yard.

More Pups!

(Click on the pictures for closeups)

On the first photo if you look to the left, you'll see one more eye looking.  We have seen 2 pups.
Probably won't be any sewing here until after dark.  I'll be running to the window look for the babies...grin.

Pocket Patchwork - Busy Work

I finished Part 6 of Pam Buda's QAL on her blog Heartspun Quilts.
It took me longer than I expected because I kept changing the colors on the border.  This is what I ended up with!

Thanks so much Pam for this QAL.  I really enjoyed something I could finish....grin.

Now to quilt it....someday.

Applique Thursday on Friday

This is one of my favorite applique books by Kay MacKenzie
I just love all of her work, and it came with a CD!!!

I must make time to sew something from this....hmmmm.  That would mean I would be starting something new, and we all know I wouldn't think of doing that.......giggle.

Still on semi-vacation.

Applique Thursdays

Go visit my friend Angie and check out the links for Applique Thursday.
