Happy Halloween!

Happy Halloween!! Here is my two youngest, right before they set out to beg for candy. Drew is of course Mario, and Ash...well...my husband dubbed her Bloody Mary :) I feel a little guilty. It's the first year I didn't go with them. My husband went;) Still waiting for them to get back.

Here is my Jagged Lines. I think I failed at this one. I have a confession to make. I DID NOT WATCH THE VIDEO. This goes to show just how valuable Leah's videos are. I have been so busy trying to finish my wonky star quilt, and just living daily life, that I didn't get to it. I thought it looked simple enough. HA!  Maybe I should watch the video and  try again.

Better news.



I got a sweet little package in the mail today:) Check out what was inside.



Terri from The Fox's Den sent me this for her blogiversary. She made it from Jeni of In Color Order's lined drawstring tutorial. I absolutely love everything! Thanks, Terri!!!!!


I'm linking up with  Leah Day of  The Free Motion Quilting Project.

One last thing.......

I got my Wonky Star Quilt done! Blogged here. I entered it into the Bloggers Quilt Festival. If you think I am worthy of a nomination In the 2 color quilt category, bed quilt category or home machine category, I would be so thankful! I'm quilt #434 
 
 Kids got home, tired and full of candy as I was writing this blog:) I'm gonna go steal some candy now!

One last thing...for real... My husband just handed me $600 to put in the bank for bills. Wanna know what he said? " Don't buy fabric with it!" haha.....oops! Okay Dear husband. I will buy Leah's Craftsy class instead!  Nite, all................

  1. Happy Halloween! Your Jagged Lines doesn't look bad! The video showed me that the lines usually meet at a jag. You'll get another chance this week when you do Lost Data (oh, I love that name!). Enjoy the candy! ~Jeanne

    1. I do too, although at one point, I started to worry that Leah lost some data, LOL

  2. Yay! I'm so glad you like it! And, oh my gosh, your Wonky Star quilt looks awesome! I love the look of 2 color quilts, but I personally never have the patience for them. I'm not entering anything in the festival, but I'd be happy to participate by nominating your quilt. :)

    1. No, I don't like it, I LOVE it! Wish you could have seen the big ole smile on my face when I opened it! I never received a gift from someone else who sews. Usually I'm the one handing out hand crafted gifts.Thank you so much! And thanks for a nomination!! I know, I'm shameless. But it is an election year and I'm just campaigning for myself;)

  4. Your Jagged Lines looks just fine to me! Any reason you missed the video? Are they getting too long? I recently checked the stats and the average watch time was around 5 minutes, and the average video is longer than 10. Something I'm thinking about...

    Thanks for the link to the awesome Quilted Fox blog - LOVE her photos!

    1. NO,no,no! You videos aren't to long at all! The point of my post is I do better after watching them! I just had a really busy week. I was focusing on getting the wonky star quilt done in order to submit to the bloggers quilt festival. Plus, I work a full time job!
      Keep doing what you are doing!

  8. I love, love, love wonky stars - they're so much fun to make. Seeing your quilt makes me want to go make one right now. :) It's beautiful!

  9. I did watch the video, but apparently "missed" some of the key mental nudges I needed to link my gaps to the jagged lines. You managed to do the link on your own. Very impressive.

    1. I feel I did MUCH better with Lost Data. And I did watch this time! I also drew a line right through the middle so I didn't wonder off to bad. It seemed to help;)
