What I’ve been working on…

These are the little projects that I’ve been working on the last few days…  They involve a little handwork, so they’ve been good to take with me to work on at the park!  I’m doing a series of 3 little mouse pincushions (I’ve made Frankenmouse before, just in case he looks familiar, but I keep giving him away!), Frakenmouse, Mousecula, and Witch Hazel!  (She’s not done yet!)  My friend Denise, picked up the pattern at Village Dry Goods.  (I already bought them when they came out last year and the year before!)  Karen, Denise and I are getting together and working on them…  They are too darn cute!

In the Roy Quilt Guild, Sue was teaching us to make 3 jack-o-lanterns stacked on top of each other.  They were a little big for the space I have left for Halloween decorations, so I made a smaller pattern for myself.  Denise and Leslie wanted to do the smaller size too, so the three of us did my little pattern!  Denise and Leslie were both doing things differently, so I stole, ummm…, borrowed the ideas I liked best from all three of them.  The pumpkins are the end result!  Thanks ladies!!!  I’ll add them to my Halloween mini quilt display on the clothesline…

      Thanks Sandy!!! I think you’re too much of a kindred spirit! We’re both halloween junkies, and we always pick the same blocks! If you love it, I love it!!! Too bad we’re so far away!!!
