Love the cat stalking the blackbirds! Wonderful decor!

Made a Halloween outfit for dd#1 but haven't gotten photos yet. In the meantime, as a change of pace, I made a necklace for myself.

I absolutely adore the mug rug I received from GrindHouseHussy19! On her questionnaire she mentioned that she does machine-embroidery, but I had no way of knowing what designs she owns. I think hedgehogs are some of the cutest animals ever, so I was delighted to see one on my mug rug. Then to make a great gift even better, she included two packages of my favorite hot chocolate mix with French labeling. Since my grandmother was French, it was perfect!

I was lucky to have two great partners for this swap. Thanks, GrindHouseHussy19 and SheridanLA!

Did a little papercrafting today to break up the sewing routine I've been in. I'm teaching a 5-min. workshop next month on cardmaking, so this is what I came up with, embossed Christmas tree cards.

Then, since Halloween is just around the corner, I made a simple pair of cards for that, too. The interiors of the cards have a small, white ghost printed on a square of black paper.

SheridanLA sent the perfect package! Not only did she nail my color preferences, my love of quilting, my love of batiks, and my love of nature, she also sent two extras that are right up my alley -  autographed romance novels from two authors she knows. How awesome is that? The front of the mug rug was from the pattern for a paper-pieced Mariners' Compass that she had started several years ago. She said she had stalked my profile and Pinterest boards. Now I know how thoroughly she did so. I'm one of the quilters in the Quilt Block Swaps who often requests paper-pieced blocks.

SheridanLA said the backing fabric reminded her of forests and the night sky, her favorite parts of camping. I also love camping, but the backing reminds me of the snow-laden evergreens that I would see every winter in my parents' backyard.

The novels are on my desk waiting for the weekend when I hope to have some time to enjoy them. Both authors are new to me, so I'm really looking forward to exploring their works. As a retired English teacher I can never have too many books! And after teaching 'quality literature' for so many years, it's my secret pleasure to immerse myself in romance novels and mysteries.  Grin

Thank you again, SheridanLA, for such a thoughtful combination of gifts!

Gator reminded me to post a photo, too. Seems like several of us have been too caught up in crafting to tend to that issue.  Grin

These are the Retro Braided Wreaths I'm offering. They measure about 4-5" across.

That bag is quite the attention grabber! I bet it would look wild in an orange and black Halloween inspired palette.

I think you're right, but since the only reason I made it was to fulfill one of the requirements for my crochet club's fair entry, I may not be making another bag anytime soon.  Cheesy These are the placemats and coasters I also made for the club entry.

My sil would claim Mario, I want the raven, and Kookaloo's baby afghan looks Mary Poppins "practically perfect in every way".

This crocheted bag is the most recent non-quilt block that I've made. Feel like I've been piecing quilt blocks unceasingly. I started with a pattern from Michael's and did a few slight alterations such as making the handles wider and the bottom more rounded.

Received from our great organizer, Gala_apples. First up a great set of abstract designs that she handcut.

Then a green patchwork that makes me think of the quilts I piece and a hexagon design that's way cute.

A fabulous black and white card that looks good no matter which direction I turn it and an aqua card that makes me think of tiny bubbles coming from a glass of pop(soda). It's definitely a fun card.

And lastly, this country style blue gingham card and a Christmas card in blue and white (another one of my favorite color combos).

Thanks, Gala!
