As Carla suggested, I'm going to use buttons for the spider bodies....creepy spiders. I've ordered some possibilities, but they haven't arrived yet.
Two fun wins. I won the Quilt Pin from Barbara at Cat Patches for playing along with her 2012 NEWFO Challenge. I won the Stack N Whack book from This-N-That fabrics which is having the Awsome Autumn QAL.
Elly in Play.....grin.
Angie's Button for Applique Thursday.
I'll be sharing my computer with 4 grand kids for a week or two so I probably won't be blogging or sewing....Grin. Hope I get some sweet hugs. They are older now and it's becoming a challenge.
My Design Wall Monday is on my machine. Still truckin' along on my second Sew Spooky block. I spent two hours trying to make some yoyos for the spiders....Not working. I'll think of some other way. Maybe I'll catch a spider from outside and preserve him....LOLLL...yes I'm quickly losing it.
We actually got a few showers in Texas the last couple of days with a few more promised. Right now it's only 91 degrees.....:)
I 'bravely' left the house (I know that's a shocker), and went to 3 quilt stores in the last couple of days. I know why I shop online for sales. I paid $11.25 for one yard of Halloween fabric....good grief Charlie Brown! That's well past my budget.
We also went to visit Mom. She remembered fabric being 4 cents a yard. Now that's unbelievable but true. Great visit. Mom is looking well, and we were both in a great mood at the same time...giggle. Especially after eating at El Gallo. Our favorite Mexican place.
I went to visit Kiera's blog today at It's Sew Kiki....Faith, Family, and Home I was leaving a comment about her post "Enough!" and ended up with a mini blog.....grin....in response with no solution to my same problem.....mostly because I'm just too lazy to deal with it. It's an interesting question. Go and visit Kiera today....loved her post.
I'm old and fat now so clothes are no longer a temptation to me, but I'm a collector....it started with Cabbage Patch dolls, baseball cards, beanies...you name it I've had fun collecting. I'm currently hooked on fabric, but the price per yard is curing that addiction all by itself.
But now what? Do I sew or spend hours, days, months clearing out my stuff. Do I just leave it for the kids to tackle??
On top of all that my Mom is 91 and is passing all her special items on to me....boxes and boxes of genealogy and keepsakes. The garage is full and the house. It's all pretty neat so I wouldn't qualify for hoarders TV show.
It's impossible to get all the information she had worked so hard for on the computer although I'm trying.
I must say it overwhelms me so I just go sew......grin. Someone will enjoy the estate sale after I'm gone.
I'm stilllllll cutting pieces for my next Sew Spooky block. I can see that I need to sit down and really read these instructions.....hmmmm. Yes, something is not clicking yet..:))
I'm sooo sleepy.
I spent the better part of my life working jigsaw puzzles. Big Mick was never interested. Well not anymore. He's hooked. He kept me up until almost 3 a.m. wanting to finish the current puzzle. Of course, two pieces are missing. I told him it wasn't a good idea to vacuum while a puzzle is in progress.....giggle.....he said he checked carefully and there were no pieces on the floor.
You can either work a puzzle or worry about the floor. You can't do both.
