Lets have a wicked and fun time today...



...it is my day to be wicked
come along for a ride on my broom.

First...a big thank you to our wicked but wonderful hostesses...
Madame Samm from Sew We Quilt 
and Wendy of Why Knot Kwilt. 
I sEw appreciate your hard work organizing 
this Wicked Blog Hop!!!

Be sure to visit the other witches 
flying on their brooms with me...

Friday, October 25th

The first project is a mini quilt for a table topper.
It is a pattern I bought in August at the AQS show in Grand Rapids.
I hand embroidered it with black Aurifil 12 wt embroidery cotton.
The pattern is by Gail Pan Designs called- halloween.
It finishes at 10.5" by 12.5".
The witch dolls I made a long time ago 
when I belonged to a craft group in Canada.
I have missed crafting with the girls these last 12 years...
soon I will be able to join the girls on Wednesday evenings!!
We will be moving back to Canada...soon.  
More about that in another post.
...a closer view.
My next project is a quilt that has been a UFO for a long time.
The embroidery was started a number of years ago but never finished.
This was the one project I really wanted to get finished.
The pattern is by Buttermilk Basin called A Full Moon Needlework BOM.
I stitched the embroidery using Presencia 8 wt black
I changed the border layout of the pattern slightly and I like how I finished it.
It measures approximately 37" by 37".
and a few more pictures...
and the back...loved this fabric.
and a few close ups showing the quilting...me on my broom!!
an vampire bat
and part of a jack-o-lantern.
My last project is a tea towel.
I used a portion of the pattern by Bird Brain Designs called...
Witches Hooray Table Runner. 
I wash my tea towels and fabric before I start my embroidery.
I used Aurifil 12 wt black for the embroidery
a 2.5"  x 22" piece of fabric and 22" jumbo size ric rac.
The scarecrow and the pumpkin was another craft project
made many years ago with Becky's crafty girls...
...one more close up picture.  
I hope you enjoyed my parade of wicked Halloween projects.

Now for a giveaway...leave me a comment... 
and you have a chance to win this mini quilt.
(frame not included)

So jealous as I have yet to uncover that talent...

I would LOVE to feature that little wall hanging next halloween in my home! I can see it in the dining room in my mind already... and it doesn't even matter that it wouldn't be here in time for this halloween as the renovations still aren't done... (aiming for thanksgiving... haha...)

but next year,... when my little farmhouse is all pretty and new and updated... yeap. I can see it! thanks for sharing your beauties and talents! I subscribed and can't wait to see what you make next!

I love your projects! They look very appropriately wicked! I get confused, isn't the 12 wt really thin? I embroider everything (really, everything) with the red cone stuff from Aurifill, it works perfect every time! So, you are moving to Canada.....I hope that means we will be seeing more of those perfect witches? Well done

Sunshine Girl said...

Wow all of your projects are lovely and your quilt is stunning - I love the quilting you have done it. Thanks for sharing.
