It's Black Cat Crossing w/Giveaway!

Good morning, and what a GREAT morning it is.  Today is my day to show what I have made for the "Black Cat Crossing" and I am so ready.



I want to thank Madame Samm and Wicked Wendy for all their hard work putting this all together for us.  I must admit, I love these "Spooky" hops.  Thanks guys!

Well, I got out my trusty pencil and paper and started to draw.  Oh, this time  I came up with two designs this time.

First one is this little guy:



I needed something narrow and long to put on top of my table where I keep my one plant.  (The table looked so plain.)

I found some skeleton fabric that seemed to match.  (Unfortunately, I  didn't get to purchase any of those beautiful Maywood fabrics.  I used what I found in my stash.)

Here he is....All ready for Halloween:




I used my fabric paints to help set him off.
(Check out the glittered glasses)

 

Then I drew this little guy:


I machine appliqued them both with monofilament thread.


I didn't have a lot of the orange fabric, so I used both the orange and black for a small boarder.


(Again I used my fabric paints)


Oh, I got just the spot for him for Halloween.

Ok, now that you seen mine...let's grab some treats,


And check out what the rest of us "goblins" have made:


Still with me?  Didn't  get scared off yet?
Well I got a giveaway (Treat) for
one of yous.


This adorable pattern for "Grace".  She is an 18 inch Angel.  Brand new, (I took her out of the wrapper to get a clearer picture.)

Rules, you ask???
Just leave me a comment.
Everyone is eligible, I will ship anywhere.  Just make sure I have your e-mail address so I can contact you.
Contest ends November 1st.  That is when I will announce a winner.
So, good luck 


When Witches go riding 
And Black Cats are seen.,
The moon laughs and whispers
It tis Halloween!



HAPPY HALLOWEEN EVERYONE!

Mary Ann said...

Wow, how talented you are. " I want to make something, I'll just draw a pattern." How awesome it would be to do that. Love both your projects, great use of color on both. (I gotta admit to getting side tracked by your little kitty in the right hand column that purrs and chases the mouse icon. Don't even know how long I played with her. LOL)
