Another Blanket for Elly - FMQ for September

What a mess!  I didn't even pull all the paper off.  This skill is beyond me.  I also couldn't figure out how to do this without going over the same lines again and again.
Which I guess doesn't matter because I couldn't keep my lines steady anyway.
Elly loves all my scrap sewing.  It goes directly in her bed.  Of course, most of the time she's on Big Mick's lap.

Sew Spooky and Applique Thursday

I added the last border and had about an inch strip left of this fabric.  That's too close for comfort to me..Phew!
Go to Angie's and see some more eye candy.

Sewww Spooky Flimsy and my Official Inspector.

Wow I hope this passes inspection.  Elly is a hard taskmaster...:/
There is still another border, but I'm not sure I have enough fabric.  I'll have to decide if I'll add it or not.  But not today.  This has worn me out!!  I'm taking the rest of the day off!
Here's some Linkys for this week.

Bats in the Attic on Applique Thursday

Still trying to catch all the Bats!
I feel like I'm being stared at..............yikes!
Elly's too busy with her new friend to help with the bats.  They have been meeting for the last three days in the window....too cute!

It's a Batty Monday!

Boy this is going to take a while to do 14 bats, 4 big stars, and 10 little ones.
I feel a little batty and I think I'm being stalked...
I'm looking at you!
Look at my mess!  It doesn't have to be cleaned up until Christmas.....:)
Some linkys for the week.  Hope to be back on Thursday with some progress.

Sew Spooky and First Border

First border and one to go.  The next one has 14 bats and a bunch of stars.
My back got tried dragging this from the sewing room to the pool room to lay it out, but I'm sure I burned at least 10 calories.
Sorry, Mick made me crop out his good looking legs...giggle.
Here are this weeks linkys.  I'm not sure when I'll get to sew again, I have company coming tomorrow.
My cousin and her husband will be here.  She is bringing a line dancing DVD.  Little does she know I can barely walk now.

Sashing is finished and WIP Wednesday

Sashing is finished with only a couple of inches left of the fabric.  That was cutting it close.  It really is square (I hope).  My sewing room is small and full, so I had to take it from an angle.
The next border is candy corn.  Think I'll eat some for the occasion.
Today is WIP Wednesday
