'Tis the Season to be SPOOKY

My blog has been neglected these past 2 weeks. I have no excuse. Can I just get away with it for a slap on the wrist?

So, it's July and you know what that means...I'm gearing up for Halloween! For those of you that don't know me, and who have ignored to title and design of this blog, to say that I'm a Halloween freak is somewhat of an understatement. I LOVE IT. Real bad. Yeah, as much as I love Christmas (and, oh, I do) I have to say I love Halloween more.

"Trick or Treat, Trick or Treat, Trick or Treat for Halloween!" I'm almost 24 and I STILL love this cartoon as much as when I was almost 6. I love that little witch! I feel like her at the beginning, dancing around on Halloween! :D

Be that as it may, the other afternoon, we got our Halloween patterns in, and knowing full well that I'd freak right out about it, Mom showed me Booville:

It's so cute I'm gonna DIE!

How stinkin' adorable is that?!?! I love it and naturally, that means I have to do the sample for the shop. Ow, ow, twist my arm, right? lol. So I have my fabrics and everything picked out and now I'm beginning the process. I have 3.5 chunks done: The Punkins house, the square-in-a-square row, the "Trick or Treat" block and I'm about halfway through appliqueing the graveyard together.

Punkins House. Well, it will be. The sign is suppose to say "Punkins." The Grammar Nazi in me will probably change that to "Pumpkins."

"...for Halloween!" Hehe. The blanket stitch here was a pain in the butt. Turned out cute though!

This is the graveyard block in progress. Holy ishballs, Batman, it's a lot of teeny curves and points. The way I see it is at least I'm getting practice on my machine blanket stitch between this and the lettering...

I can't wait to get the rest done!!


  1. You already know I squeeed over this one like crazy! I need to find a good halloween wallhanging pattern!!! I must have a halloween wallhanging!

  2. or you could write punks on the sign ;)
