You may have seen Madame Samm over at will be holding a blog hop featuring the Ghastlies, in October.   I signed up.  The Button is on the side bar.  It looks like there is a lot of interest.     Here are a couple of shots of some elements on my quilt.  It is looking like "The Ghastlies versus Where's Wally" with a Victorian/Gothic feel.   I love lots of glittering, shiny things on my quilts - I will be finished when a. I have run out of room or b. somebody says enough already!!
 Every time I see this charming little girl I start to hum to myself -
Lizzy Borden took an axe, gave her mother 40 whacks, when she saw what she had done, gave her father 41...........
 Keys to the mansion, dungeon, and maybe under the stairs.
 The owl in the dinner party scene tickles my funny bone - I made an applique up.....
Lace bats from Urban Threads - I could and probably will end up spending a fortune over here.
 Check out the key and the lock.   I am using wash away from Embroidery Source.
I am having a go at including a little video.   It is O'Reilly washing Harv.   The sound is awful (be kind, this is my first YouTube video - I have no idea what I am doing)  and I had to keep reminding The Big O to be gentle.   He likes to keep pushing until the cat runs.......

O'Reilly is extremely food orientated/obsessed.   Ask me about the chicken fillet and a half (large - closer inspection would have you thinking it came from a turkey..) that he managed to steal with such stealth and speed  as I reached for a here is a little montage of O'Reilly sharing an apple with me.

And just so he doesn't feel left out, Norman voguing on the kitchen table in the sunshine.

Thanks for dropping in.    Sue xxx
