Happy Hallow`s Eve

I think I posted this one last year but thought it needed another presentation on this scarry night.  I hope all the goblins stay safe and have great weather.
This is from a pattern Something Wicked This Way Comes. One of my favorite sayings and movies. I don`t see them playing this movie for Hallows Eve and it would be soooo Appropriate.
I am still working on my SS so I am not able to post anything right now everything else is on hold at the moment but loving what everyone is posting for Quilt Mart

Hand Quilting

I had just added a button on my sidebar of hand quilting celebration. If you click on it you will come to a page where others are showing their hand quilting. I had hand quilted these little mini`s and thought I would bring them back to show you.

they both had gone into auction and I forget to get a finish of the stocking one
If you want a closer look you can always click on teh pictures.
We do need to have a revival on hand quilting. Quilt shows are wonderful with machine quilting but it would be nice if you got half and half.

I have some pictures that I will be posting later. Having some computer issues with getting my adobe to work and Active X (whatever they are) but will post soon.

Don`t forget those in the Ontario area that there is a quilt show coming up soon just Google York Heritage Quilt Guild and you will get all the information you need to get to the show. I know that you will love it

Well I have to get back to my SSS`s the dates are getting close and I need to finish them up.

Loving the rain...loving the fall colors soon we will have a winter wonderland. I have been in the mood for soup and I have been making everykind of lentil soup there is. Great for freezing and bringing to work for lunch.

I am not supposed to be here

in the mini world right now
I am busy working on a few things been busy going to quilt shows and dealing with some real life things.

I had a V8 moment this week. Knew I had a guild meeting, thought for sure it was Wednesday, all organized, report for Office, baked a cake, had some show and share and my triangles to hand it only to  find out that it was last night.

now you see why I had time to post, I thought I was to be somewhere else, is this what happens when you get close to 50?

Dawn would like to know why you picked the name for your blog. I think this is great to understand about the person behind the blog. It is a wonderful idea.
So my reason is just what is says patchwork is keeping my sanity. I find that when I go to my quilt room and play that when I come out I am refreshed and ready to face anything so it has kept my sanity.

Hope to see others go to Dawn`s blog and post their name and let us know what made you think of that name
