You know what's "sew spooky"? The fact that I could put aside everything I'm already working on to start a new project. But that's exactly what I did on Sunday. Because look what finally arrived in the mail late last week:
"Sew," can you really blame me? I bet you'd be tempted too. Maybe you WERE tempted? Did you sign up for the whole quilt kit or perhaps the block of the month kits? I'm sure I'm not the only one! Are you working on the same project--or dreaming of starting it?
Yes, I've finished the first block--I just finished it tonight. (By the way, that quilt hanging on the side of the house is dimensional and underneath lurks a spider!) I guess you might say I kept my nose to the grindstone--or to the sewing machine, needle, and thread, at least. SOMEONE tried to side track me by laying on my block while I was adding the final embroidery stitches tonight, but he was swiftly escorted from the Sweat Shop.
Persistent little bugger! He reminds me of the Wicked Witch of the West, flattened under Dorothy's house; don't you agree?! But then what black (and white) cat WOULDN'T want to get close to a Halloween quilt block, especially one that has a cat on the roof!
Block two? The haunted barn.
I'm very tempted to start it right away, but there are other projects demanding attention, not the least of which is Mr. Stitch, who is, as I type, straddling my keyboard, staring intently at me, beaming thought waves in my direction reminding me it's time for his dinner.
