Are You Sitting Down?!?

I did it again!!!!  As you may recall, I made an entire flimsy last Sunday, to alleviate the guilt of buying new fabric.  And it felt so good, I did it again today.  Granted, it was a small kit, but I bought it just over a year ago, and it was collecting dust.

I still need to add the Jack O'Lantern face, but that won't take long.  I don't know if you can see it or not, but the outer border is candy corn!  I think I have something in my stash that I can use for the backing, but I don't think it will be ready for hanging in time for Halloween.

A couple of other small projects are almost finished, so I'll show them later in the week.  Assuming I have power later in the week.  Prayers going out to all who are in the path of Sandy.  Even as far as we are from the coast, we're expecting several inches of rain, and Tropical Storm force winds.  Major power outages are expected, and I'm hoping we won't be affected.  If so, I'll be pulling out the crocheting to while away my time. 

The last of the flowers on my deck


 These leaves will all be gone by this time tomorrow night.
Keep on stitching..... Sunny

  1. I'm pleased you warned us to sit down!! Well done - that is a great pattern. We've been hearing about 'Sandy' on the radio over here - I wondered who of my friends would be affected - I'll be thinking of you all.

  2. Good Job! That Jack-o-lantern is really going to be cute. Love the candy corn border too. I bet you're glad to get a UFO done too. I have so many I can't count them and of course they are stored right now so it will be a while before I can get to them so my answer to the problem is to start new UFO's. I'm a bad girl. Be safe, stay dry and warm.

  5. Well, I'm twice impressed now!! Your quilt looks great. Even if it is not finished you could throw it over a table for Halloween.
    Good luck in the storm. I remember all the damage from one a couple of years back.

  12. Haha! Sunny, you are such an instigator...but I'm way ahead of you. I've hunkered down for the week up here in Central NY with lots of quilting and other projects to catch up on. Sandy will pretty much run out of steam by the time it gets to our neighborhood but we're taking no chances and are ready for bear! Prayers going up for those in it's path.

  17. Love log cabin block and love pumpkins so I really love this little quilt. Good luck with the wind and rain. We only had a taste of it while we were in New Bern at a show but still came away soaking wet! Signed up for THREE shows in your area for next year. Hope to see you again!

    Cheers!

  22. Your little flimsy is adorable! I look forward to seeing the face you put on the pumpkin. Beautiful photos of the flowers that are still hanging on. Hopefully you have not been hit too hard by the remnants of Sandy.

  23. so nice! I thought that looked like candy corn! I am horrible... I love fall fabrics...but never make the time to make something with the fabric I buy. {mostly fat quarters}... I just need to start.

    Hope you're safe after Sandy. <3 your close-up leaf photo! Being in Florida, I sure miss seeing those leaves!
