WELCOME to day 6 of........


I was thrilled, over the top excited when Mme Samm Ghastlie asked me to be part of the
1st Ghastlie Blog Hop.
 Welcome to our 1st Annual Ghastlie Blog HOP

If you have this thing for Ghastlies
and they have tied you in a knot
and you wish you could get them out of your mind
than this may be a thought.
We heard her plea for a cure
Mdm Samm was pos/it/ively sure
that we could stitch the nights away
in hopes that we MAY----
( all 53 of us)
BUT....

The side effects are Ghastlie
there is no mistaking too.
if you don't run this very minute
YOU too will catch the FLU...
We suspected all along
this was her master plan
she did not want to be alone,
with all YOU Ghastlie FANS...


 I have been suffering from the nasty Ghastlie flu
for some time now, about a month actually, and think I've found 'the cure'.
....please come and see what has been ailing me.......
Ghastlie Collection 2011

and here is a closer look of all the Ghastlie meds that cured me....
a canvas bag....
with a pink lining and lots of pockets.
Canvas Bag

a table runner
...it is a variation of the table runner by sherri at A Quilting Life.
It is a free tutorial on sherri's blog.
It is so easy to make.......
you can even make it with 4 blocks and it would be a perfect size!!

a lunch bag
It is a 'Favorite Things' pattern designed by Kimberly Gladman
I made a few moderations to the original pattern.

do you think I'm over the flu? I believe I am...and
I think found the cure.....stitch for a month with the Ghastlies

I have been warned...it is an annual flu
but next year I will be sEw ready when the flu bug bites.....

I LOVE your canvas bag. Simple but lovely - well I mean Ghastlie! I have made projects from a few blog tutorials - a couple of bags and tried out some new blocks. I am a follower. Thanks for a chance to win.

Vroomans' Quilts said...

I love the aprons - how clever to use the 'hot dog' method. All of it is surely Ghastlie fever and you went beyond the flu.

CJ said...

Love the little aprons for the soap bottles, maybe I should make some of those that would help keep the bottles from slipping out of my hands any time I try to grab it when my hands are wet. Thanks for that share!!

I'm definitely following you, and haven't made any blog tutorials from the Ghastlie gift ideas, but I'm definitely going to try and work on the baby blanket after this weekend pasts. :)

Please enter me in both giveaways, and thanks again!

Happy Halloween!!

Laura said...

Pat V. said...

Oh, man, hard to pick just one favorite! You've got some very cute stuff here...the Sebastian journal is ORANGE, my favorite color, and I do love the tea cozy, but I'd have to say the lunch bag is my absolute fav!

Sonja said...

My fav is the tea cozy! LOVE it!

I´ve made a lot of things from blog tutorials but I still have a lot on my to-do-list...

Karen said...

Have you had any sleep this month? I cannot believe how much you have done!!! All your projects are amazing. And you have used the fabrics in so many different ways. Now I finally know what you have done with the little table from the thrift shop. Love it!!
Have a wonderful Halloween. We have had quite a few knocks at the door tonight - it's getting late so nearly over for the children. Did you end up with snow?

Pippa Parsons said...

Happy Halloween, I'm a follower and i'm about to check out the soap bottle aprons, they are so cute

Grammasheri said...

Of course I have to follow someone who has had the Ghastlie flu as badly as I have! My goodness lady, you have been BUSY! My favorite is the lunch bag but I'm smitten by them all. The apron is a cutie and I love the tea cozy...

There are so many blog tutorials that I want to make (like the TV table iron pad) and have made quite a few already. Will never, ever catch up!

Chiska said...

I love your apron! and the tea towel. I learned how to make a pinwheel quilt from a blog tutorial. I made a small quilt for my daughter.

Pat said...

Your tea cozy is the best!

tink's mom said...

Jeanie said...

Great line up of Ghastlie projects! Bootiful!

Janet said...

What fun! Tough to pick a favorite, but I would probably go with the journal cover. Or the lunchbag. No, the journal cover.

I've made a few things from blog hops, but have printed a TON of patterns from blog hops to make later.

Thanks for the opportunity!

Quilter in the Gap said...

So many things to love here. Your aprons are beautiful. Thank you for sharing.

Melanie said...

Wow. You made some amazing things. I really like your first bag. Not too busy, very cool. Thanks for the chance!

JCnNC said...

Everything is so ghastlie and You Is Creative! Love the tea cozy, just because. Great uses of such wonderful fabric. Judy C

Renea said...

Your projects are all sew Ghastlie Cute. Thanks for the giveaway. I love your lunch bag.

KristyLou said...

All of your projects were amazing. But I might have to steal your idea of the TV tray ironing board!

StitchinByTheLake said...

Pauline please do a tutorial on the apron! I'd love to make one and I've never made the pillowcase that way so I'd be lost. I like your iron cozy better than mine. :) I love the table runner but I think your lunch bag is the cutest ever - that's my favorite! blessings, marlene

Marjorie's Busy Corner said...

I am signing up......I love everything...but expecially the table runner and tea cozy....I haven't made an thing yet....but I will be; it's hard to make up my mind....lol

I've made a few things from blog tutorials and have a huge 'to do' list of many more :)
Thanks for the chance to win some Ghastlie goodness.

♥Duff said...

I never thought of using the hot dog method for making an apron--that's ingenious! And yes, I've used blog tutorials to make LOTS of things as well as to hone my skills (zippers were always elusive!) I like Quilt-a-longs because there's a deadline and other people to share in the joy with--maybe you should host one of those!

MooseStash Quilting said...

You have been busy with your flu!! Thanks for sharing all the places to find the projects you've done. So you think your cured huh??? I just ordered more Ghastlie fabric in preparation for next year!! hahahaha

~Lavender Dreamer~ said...

WOW! You didn't even need to ask...I wanted to tell you that the Black canvas bag is my FAVORITE project today! It really is perfect! I have not made anything yet but have a few projects in mind! And NOW I have the Ghastlie flu! I caught it on about the 5th day! heehee! Thanks for the fun! ♥ I'm a follower! ♥

stitchinRN said...

What a great idea, the iron cozy and ironing surface. Thanks.
I would love to be able to winone of your prizes.
I have done some projects from quilting tutorials. One was baby burp cloths- made from purchased diapers and dressed up a bit. Another project was the 'burrito style pillow case'. Have a super day. gvgolfrn@gmail.com

Bettina Groh said...

I think the soap apron and kitchen towel.... but i think one of my bears would love to wear it instead. Haven't found any Ghastlie fabric (yet) so haven't made anything.

Mommarock said...

I really couldn't pick a favorite.. Was ever so happy that the blog hop was continuing today as I just can't seem to get enough of all of the projects. I think I would like to make a purse though so I could carry it around and people would look and wonder what in the world I am up to.. I like to keep them guessing!

Kathy H said...

I am a follower and I love the ghastlie projects you have made. My favorite is either the tea towel or the apron. I do use tutorials quite a bit when I want to try something new. My favorite tutorial that I found was for mitered binding on a quilt. I could never get it just right until I found that tutorial.

Marie said...

I have to say 'perfectly ghastlie, my dear'! I loved all the projects but especially the iron cover. Somehow, it just appealed to me.

Needled Mom said...

Such wonderful projects!!! I just love the iron cozy. The fabric is perfect in so many projects that I have seen.

Amy said...

I'm a new follower and I just love the canvas tote! Soooo cute! The only tutorials I've ever followed were the ones from Moda Bake Shop :)

Ramona said...

I love how you isolated Sebastians face on the button on your bag. Madame Samm was right to have faith in you. Everything turned out beautiful. Great idea the little iron cover with a TSK TSK - don't forget finger being wagged at you! Ha ha!

Linda said...

I'm a follower here. Love all your projects, but I think the lunch bag is my favorite! I've certainly followed tutorials for many things! (I'm very visual.)

Anonymous said...

Such wonderful projects. I love the iron cover and the bags. I haven't used any of the tutorials yet, but have them printed out and put with the fabric to make Christmas gifts. Thanks for sharing.

I'm a new follower and I can't seem to leave this comment with my google account. So will go this way.

Marilee said...

TrickorTreat! I like all your projects but I think my favorite is the portable ironing board and iron cozy. Great idea, too, for making a mesh bag with the Ghastlies. I follow you so sign me up for the tea cozy. I don't have one. Yes, i do use the tutorials. Someday, someone will do a book of the Best ones.

Suzanne said...

I am following your blog! I loved the apron!!! I have a lot of tutorials bookmarked but I haven't made any yet!!

Vikki B said...

I am a follower now!

I love the table runner, so nice to see how that turned out as I was thinking of doing something similar!

I have used a few tutorials - mostly for quilts and bindings. I have a lot more bookmarked to try out and you have added some more!

Leah said...

Great job!! Everything looks wonderful! I particularly like the table runner. The quilting and the gray border are perfect. Thanks for sharing with us!

Patty said...

Love all that you have done to get rid of the flu. How I hope it will turn up again next year. I haven't made anything yet, but christmas is comming and I have saved a few ideas. I am a new follower.

Jessica said...

You have made some great things for the Ghastlie blog hop. I am a follower of your blog and I love the aprons you made. They are so pretty.
I have made some quilt blocks from tutorials online, I am working on a block of the month quilt that I hope will be finished soon.
Thanks for sharing!

Jeanne said...

My tv tray that sets out on my deck is moving in and getting a new look. I thank you sew much for the idea. What did you pad with? I can't pick just one thing you made as a favorite, so maybe you should send me one of each to soothe my pain of thinking. It has given me a ghastlie headache only cured by ghastlie goodies I am sure. :) Thanks for the fun. I am following your blog.

Abbybeth said...

I am a new follower! I love your table runner and the tea towels with Sebastain on the orange background!

I make a lot of things from internet tutorials - I've made several quilts from Moda Bake Shop, a pencil roll up, a table runner and Camille's dish soap aprons are on the to-do list for a 50s housewife themed party I'm planning!

Createology said...

Oh Please the Ghastlie Tea Cozy if I may win. Thank you so much for participating in this Super Ghastlie Party. Each and every one of your Ghastlie creations are fabulous.

piece peace said...

New follower here. Only one favorite...that is tough...I think the dish soap aprons are my favorite. I almost made some myself. All of your projects are jut Ghastlie. I love online tutorials, but I find I mostly use them for inspiration and technique. Happy Halloween!

silvia haynes said...

Fabulous Ghastlie projects!! My favorite is the table runner :)
I am a newbie and have not made a quilt yet

Quiltin' Jenny said...

I know this is going to be silly since it is probably one of the simpler things you made, but I love the tea cozy. You fussy cut the Ghastlies just right! So cute!

Thanks for all these great projects. I think I'm coming down with a touch of the FLU!

Carolyn said...

Oh goodness, Pauline, I just love everything you made! This blog hop has been my all time favorite, and I've been involved in many. You are so creative, as are all your sistahs!

Loralynn said...

I think I like your mesh bag the best, although it's very hard to choose. I have a thing for bags and purses of all kinds so that one stands out the most to me. I like how crisp the fabric looks next to the mesh. Wonderful job on everything! I use online tutorials all the time...there are so many wonderful ones. I am now a follower of your blog and can't wait to see what new things you come up with!

Jane's Fabrics and Quilts said...

Pauline!! I do not even know where to begin!! YIKES did you have the flu. But look what happened, I love all your Ghastlie Goodies!! Love the table runner, I also love the ironing board! Great ideas, all of them. Thank you for sharing!

ritainalaska said...

Carrie said...

Wonderful projects!!! I love the apron though! I thought I had the flu bad, but you were really bitten by it. I view a lot of tutorials online, and follow a lot of blog hops, I also print tutorials for later use! Great Job! Ms. Carrie Ghastlie

chicken mommy said...

I simply love the ironing table you made out of the old tv tray. I have been using my table and a very thick towel, but I see one of these as a project in my future.

alidiza said...

You are sick!!! Those are all just ghastlie: )

Angie @ Summerfield Quilts said...

I love that lunch bag. It's so very ghastlie. I look at a lot of online tutorials but the only one I've been working on is the Christmas Tree Pants.

Mrs.Pickles said...

When i saw your first pic i think i yelled wow and then clicked follow..lol Great projects just! I like the little soap aprons best. I have never made anything from a blog tut before, but you sure make me want to try a few!

Calikisses said...

Hi! I'm a new follower :)

I love the lunch bag, but the dish soap aprons are so creative and adorable! I've never seen anything like it before!

I have a lot of saved online tutorials, but I am waiting to get a new sewing machine because mine is broken at the moment before I can follow any of them.

Thank you for sharing your ghastly creations with us!

Carol C said...

I love all your projects. They are just wonderful and you've been very busy. I still need to make an iron cozy from Nan's tut. Thanks for sharing.

Carol said...

I think I caught your flu (though I've actually had it quite a while) and now I need to run home and make a Ghastlie runner. Definitely will be following you!

Pam said...

I am a new follower. I like the lunch bag the best. Probably because I have been thinking about making some. I have followed a couple of tutorials for making projects-quilts and bags-lots of fun.

Sheila said...

I am already a follower ,my favorite project would be the aprons just so cute! I have made several things from tutorials the apron being one of them:-)

Sherri said...

NO WAY....YOU ARE TOO COOL FOR SCHOOL!!!

I love all of it! But if I have to pick one, it would be the green/pink apron! lol!

Brenda said...

It is a tie between the lunch bag and the tea cozy. Love them all though. I have used a tutorial to make a quilted pillow top, two actually and have a lot saved on my pinterest account for the future.

WoolenSails said...

A lot of new and different creations with the ghastlies, love them. My favorite is the runner, great way to show off the fun blocks.

sandra said...

I am now a follower, I live now in Stratford Ontario but was born in London and I also lived in St Louis for a few years. I thought we have a lot in common. It is hard to say what I love the most but I liked the table runner and I liked the idea for the ironing board. I often make tutorials but I haven't had time to do any ghastlies yet. Thanks for all of your hard work.

Corrie said...

Happy Halloween. What a collection of ghastliness. Thanks for all of the links. I like the tea towel. Just love that orange.

Mom C said...

What an array of marvelous Ghastlies. I love them all! I haven't made anything from the Ghastlie hop yet but I have plans. I've used lots of ideas from other blog hops, I get most of my ideas from them for designs and ways to do things. Thanks for sharing.

Quilting "b" said...

Charlene S said...

I love the table runner and the mesh bags. I follow your blog. I would love the tea towel and soap covers.

Dianne Giles said...

lgentymk said...

You had a very severe case of the terrible flu floating around blog land. I love the iron cover the post she is even warning you to beware of the hot iron.

Connie said...

Beautiful projects! I am a follower and I love your lunch bag, you really did have a bad case of the Ghastlie flu!!!

Katherine said...

Oh, my! Sistah Pauline, you have definitely got Ghastlie fever... and with so many beautiful projects, you're certainly spreading this "FLU". ;o)
Inspired by all your Ghastlie creations - from the runner to the bags, the iron cover and the kitchen goodies... they're all gorgeous!

Colleen said...

I am a follower and I love the soap apron ! So cute. I do like to use blog tutorials alot.

LynCC said...

Wow!! You have quite a wonderful Ghastlie collection there! I especially love the mesh bag. Although, that TV ironing table is an amazing idea that I will be going to the tutorial for from here. (Yes, I do use quilting tutorials - the latest was a nifty one for making a 3D pinwheel block.)

Scrapbook-ChickADoodle said...

You have made such ghastlie things. So hard to choose a favorite...I think the runner or the iron cozy or the cup cozy.

Please enter me for the tea cozy.

tpott said...

I'm a new follower. My favorite Ghastlie projects on your blog are the table runner and the canvas bag with many pockets. Yes, I've made a few things from blogs and blog hops. You're very prolific with your Ghastlies. They're beautiful, you're sew creative. Happy Hopping! ;-> Toni Anne

Sandra Coleman Clarke said...

Wow!!! You must never sleep! So many cute things, Thank you.

Happy Halloween Ms.Ghastlie!
I just love that black tote bag! But love all of your celver projects! Good job! Thanks for sharing, I'm now a follower!
Cheers

VickiT said...

You have certainly been busy with the fabulous Ghastlies. I really like so many things you've created and now you need to have me pick just one? ugh. That is really tough for me because one of your creations is tugging at my heart strings. I really love the 2nd apron because I'm drawn to the green. That shade of green is one of my favorites. BUT, that tea cozy brings back childhood memories of my Grandmother. She and Grandpa came to the States from England about 1955 and as any proper Brit will tell you, there is always time for tea. Grandma made she and Grandpa tea every afternoon and to the day she died in 1972 on Christmas morning, she put the tea ball into her silver tea pot with wooden handle setting it onto a wood shaped octagon and then put her tea cozy over top for an exact amount of time so her tea would steep to the perfect pot of tea. Then she and Grandpa would sit in their living room she in her chair and Grandpa in his rocking chair smoking his pipe drinking their tea and eating a type of hard caramel candy she got from England. Our relatives would send the candy to her and she also had tiny round tins of fruit flavored candies that I just loved, also from England all of those she stored in the refrigerator inside a metal tin she brought with her from the homeland. So yea, that tea cozy really brought back some great memories. Thank you.

Sherill said...

Wow Pauline you got with it! I love both but I need a tea cozy:)

Denise said...

I liked the coffee cup holders...the apron bottle covers were a retro fun idea!

Thanks for sharing the fun!

Michele said...

Wow. You were one very busy Ghastlie sistah this past month! I love the table runner the most. I don't have any tea cozy creations here and would love one. I haven't made anything new yet off a blog tut but I have a bunch in the planning stage. I'm trying to get a bunch of gifts done first.

Heather A said...

What a fabulous bunch of ghastlie creations you've realized! And all so beautifully done! Tres Impressed! I can't even pick a favourite because I love them all. So, of course, I'd be thrilled to win one. And why haven't I known about your blog by now? Sheeesh! I'm obviously out of the loop. So now I'm a follower and just added you to my Google Reader. Nice to get to know you!

Love the bags and the iron cozy. I have never used this fabric line but it looks just like something I would use.

Oh I'm so glad you're feeling better. You did an amazing job on your projects and everything is so Ghastlie Gorgeous!! What a clever idea using the tv table for an ironing table. I think you've inspired me. hehe. I love your tablerunner and I'd love to be in your drawing for the tea cozy or the dishsoap aprons. Too cute!!

Adorable and practical, fun things on this post! If i have to choose just one it'd be the canvas bag since i love the ghastlie fabric used on it with the black...great contrast. Yes, i've made numerous things from blog tutorials. Love them since i an go back if i need help, and boy do i need help with my memory-impairedness! Thanks for the chance to win and have a great day

Oh boy, for being sick you did great. I really like your tablerunner and your bags. I've never
sewn a bag with the mesh before. Neat idea and looks great. All your projects are awesome and I'd love to be included in your drawing as well.
I'm also a new follower.

I am a follower. I love ALL of your items. How fun. I am glad that you are cured but I am glad it took so much! LOL! My favorite item is the tablerunner.

Jennifer M. said...

Oh My Goodness! Do your Sistah's need to come with fans and cool you and your machine off a little? You were a crazy sewing lady this past month! LOL I can't get over how many items you made and how awesome each of them are. You took Samm's challenge and flew with it! I love it all. What a nifty idea with the TV Tray. That Iron Cozy is awesome. I need to make one of those. That tablerunner is awesome. Such a simple project that showcases the fabric so well. Two Thumbs Up for a job Well Done!

If Ghastlie Sistah's are eligible, can I be entered in your giveaway please? :D
