As promised, Me in all mt witchy goodness!

The Organ concert was wonderful the studants played a tag team on the obligatory Toccata and Fugue, they also played the march of the marionettes, better known as the theme music for Alfred Hitchcock presents" and so many others. lots of fun!

witchi-poo hat done!

I thought putting "member in good standing of the black hat society" in a circle was more incantation worthy than wandering across the hat somewhere.

I used a lot of iron-on rhinestone's for flash, and the dragon holds two mirrors.

the rest of the details are wiccan symbols and buttons.

this side asks " are you a good witch or a bad witch?"

he spider did indeed get his legs!

A new fairy tail

I have started a new fairy tail block to go with the two that are more or less finished, i have two or three that i started about two years ago on the trip to Boston, but they are in Chicago with the rest of my belongings.

I know when the Ideas start coming, they come in groups and you never know how long a quilting toot will last so it's a good idea to get them started, even if you don't finish them right away.

this other block is the start to an SRE class I'm taking at Gathering Fabrics quilt store.
I wanted lots of big open spots for the ribbon work.

I was trying for colorways I don't normally use but who am I kidding, I am Mrs. every color all the time!

if anyone in the woodinville /bothell area is interested, the class meets every 2nd tuesday of the month and is $25.00 a class.

here's the web site for the store,

Witchi-poo hat

I have decided to join the throngs at UWb's annual Halloween, spooky organ music recital.
I am going as a Witch (go figure)so this will cap my maribu witches hat.
I got the idea for it from a pattern I saw in gathering fabric, a quilt store in woodenville.

As you can see I don't follow patterns very well, which is why I love CQ,

I could leave it like it is and be the bell of the ball(so to speak) but that just wouldn't be me!
I have so much more planned for this you will not recognize it!
I will post more later ladies, I am on a roll !)

Christmas stocking

As most of my things are still in Chi town, I have been working on things that I brought with me but that only lasts for so long!

A new friend Kathy has been kidnapping me and taking me sight seeing around washington to various quilting stores and the inspiration has been rife with possibilities!

A piece of fabric here and a piece of lace there and my new stash is piling up!

My DBF isn't helping either, he keeps taking me to places where i must have this or that, fueling my addiction, naughty boy! this is why I love him;)

I started a Christmas stocking for him since he doesn't have one!

I made the wreath of some wonderful variegated fuzzy floss I received in a Christmas jumble bag, the roses are made of gold laddered ribbon

this corner is going to be an organ once I can figure out how to make it look like one!as you can see, the pipes are already down I just need to figure out the keyboard part.

the robin turned out quite well i think. I took two different colors of floss to get the mottled effect.
I used the same laddered ribbon for the gold leaves he is sitting on.

the swirly was made from gold cord and couched down.

I loved the bullion tree in NZ joe's Christmas block so much I made one of my own. the trunk is brown organdy ribbon spot tacked.

the spider will eventually get his legs and the web is made from gold DMC thread.

one minute to midnight

I have more progress!

I added the ribbon because the circles were not working for me and it brings the moon into the picture instead of being a main focal point. I addaed the mice along the side because who else is going to pull the coach?

I filled in the horse and coach and added a glass slipper for the purists out there who will insist that cindarella have one. the rooster was just a fun find. we have a wonderfull bead shop in bothell called "garden of beadin" at the country village not only is it fun to walk around but there is also a sane quilt shop there.

I added several clock faces all chiming midnight and finished the last seam in the fan and filled in a few other spots that were bugging me. I'm still not sure I'm done.

when I put the two blocks together so far It makes me want to do more work on the kateschi block
