We don't seem to embrace Halloween here in Australia like other parts of the world but in recent years the marketing has been getting stronger and this year I couldn't resist getting into the spirit when for the first time I saw these Jack-o-Lantern pumpkins at the supermarket.
After watching numerous Youtube videos, I went to work and was quite pleased with how "Jack" turned out.
And finally, I have a use for this Witch I made several years ago - don't you just love her lace-up boots!
I received this beautiful parcel from Nadine. The fabrics are from Provence and were selected by Nadine whilst she was there on holidays. There were lots of little treasures in the parcel and I felt really spoilt when I opened it - thank you Nadine.
I have a couple more photos of Quilts in the Barn to share with you but please go and click on the badge on my sidebar for much better photos of all the quilts that were displayed. I just wanted to show this one. Look at all the detail with the different layers of fabric to create this beautiful bird. This level of work was indicative of almost all of the quilts displayed - amazing!
Here is Sarah Morrell, made using a pale blue background. I am so in love with this quilt!
One for all the hexie lovers.
I have made the centre of this quilt. It has been in the cupboard now for a couple of years and I may just have to get it out and finish it???
This is called Drayton Hall by Di Ford and I came home with the pattern for this one.
I also came home with this chair for my sewing room - yes we went to Ikea after visiting 3 patchwork shops. As I said in my last post, we had a very big day out.
Fabrics purchased from various shops and,
this beautiful little book. If you love cross stitch, go have a look at Jean's, from Linen & Raspberry, latest post. You will be in cross stitch heaven!
I have been working on Swan Lake and "Hooray for Me" I have finished the fourth border! In saying that, I still have 44 star flowers to applique down the mitred borders once it is all joined together - won't that be fun???
Now I don't have too much to show for Clamshell Club this month but I have been working on them. I ran out of clams so I have cut lots more and have been turning over the tops in readiness to applique down.
Here is my Buddy boy. Just had to share this pic I took of him.
