Tis "'wickedly" Good!

Yes, it "Tis Wickedly Good" and it is Friday and my day to show you what "Wicked" things I made.  I was sooo happy when Madame Samm had posted to sign up for this Hop.  I couldn't wait!  Not only to make something "Frightful" but to see all the other projects that were stirred up.   So let me give a BIG thank you to both Madame Samm and to Wendy  for hosting this great hop.  I can imagined that it is a lot of work.  And we all do appreciate it.



Oh, I had so many ideas for this hop.....Then all of a sudden I got bombarded with a lot of other things that had to take priority.  UGH!!  
 
Then I decided to do a silhouette wall hanging.   So I drew this:   (ended up making 2.)




I was starting to get carried away with my pumpkins and it didn't look right to me to have a dog standing on them.  Then again, some say that it is not a dog but another cat??  Spooky, huh??


 


Now my son said that my phone will take better pictures than my camera.  I can read that there are more Pixels and with my camera I sometimes have a hard time keeping them clear.  I guess I shake the camera too much.  He said that phone will always take clear pictures for me.   Well, I somehow can still get blurry pictures.  He just laughs.

Then these came to mind.  Gee, I got Christmas, and colors to match my decor, so why not "Halloween"?





I got all sizes:  9 1/2 inch round,  6 inch round, and 4 inch round.




T'was the week before All Hallows Eve
My nose was so stuffy that I couldn't breathe.
The beasties and ghoulies all were creeping,
(It was late at night, I should've been sleeping).
I heard their sighs, I heard their moans,
Their rattling chains and creaking bones;
But I didn't get scared, didn't wish them away
'Cuz I like to hear ghoulies and beasties at play.
These creatures, you see, were very polite
Each time that I sneezed they'd say "Gesundheit"


With Cider in hand, I am ready to Fly over to these other "Wickedly" great project...come join me...

       October 25th

And here is next weeks schedule:

       October 28th
I Piece 2-Mary


             October 29th

           October 30th

           October 31st


Now for my "Treat".   I purchased this cute Halloween fabric and did not get a chance to use it.   I know someone will have a lot of fun with it.   It is 1 yard, not cut, not washed.




To enter is easy.  Just leave me a comment.  I will run my giveaway through the hop and post a winner on November 1st.  It is open to ANYONE! Just make sure I can contact you.  I will go to the random.org to pick my winner.  

Oh, and don't forget the giveaway for the EQ 7 will end on the 28th.  To enter please see my post below.

Now I must fly, I got lots to do........

THX for the giveaway opportunity. You are right that someone will love that fabric!

Nellie Duclos said...

Love your crocheted doilies-don't often see them in those colors. Thanks for sharing.

Nancy said...

I was impressed with the silhouettes, but then saw the crocheted doiles and thought about all the ideas you came up with and how great they were. I would never have thought of Halloween doiles. I love Halloween and the fabric would be used in more wallhangings or table runners, etc.

MoeWest said...

I like your Wicked silhouettes and the beautiful doilies! I never mastered crochet but I have many lovely doilies made by my MIL. Thanks for the giveaway.

Excellent job. I truly admire your drawing talents.

Those doilies are great--who would have thought! You must have the first set in Halloween colors. The mini quilts are adorable and not a bit wicked. The background color really sets it off.

I love your projects. I love the eye expression of the one kitty. You are very clever to think of orange, black and white doilies. They are perfect for the season. The one is adorable under your rocking witch. You do amazing quilting and crocheting. Thanks for participating and sharing your amazing creativity.
