Well, with "Ghastlie Mania" over for the time being, I just wanted to send out a big  thank you to all those who took the time to pass comment on my "Ghastlie" quilt.   I am absolutely floored by the kind and encouraging thoughts sent my way.   I would also like to say a big hello to my new followers.    I  will try to keep it interesting and keep you interested! 

Just to rub it in, the following couple of photo's are gifts currently winging their way to my blog hop winner. I hope they give you a laugh Leesa.......

 I will post a little "how to" on the bracelet shortly - they are quick and easy and would be a great little gift for the Christmas stockings........yes it is nearly that time of year again (48 or so days to go).

Click on the side buttons to view "Pintrest" pages set up for Ghastlie projects, and Madame Samm will keep the Ghastlie Site with the 54 participants blog posts at the ready.   

Now to step away from quilty bits - this is a bit of handiwork by the big heap himself..........I, naturally, was sewing - all was quiet, too quiet as it turns out.............

 Not a bad effort for an hour.      Good gravy some days you need a sense of humour.   Can you see a resemblance to "Bear" from Bear in the Big Blue House?    That takes me back - the elf turned 16 a few weeks ago - seems like only yesterday I suffered Thomas, Bear, Postman Pat - now I am looking forward (not) to an endless summer school holiday,  having my ears assaulted by Spongebob Squarepants and even more endless reruns of the Simpsons.    I have told my husband to employ the elf gainfully for a few days a week or else a crime could well be committed.
 And because O'Reilly fills up a fair swag of my posts these days,  here he is celebrating his first birthday on Sunday.........
I know, it is not very respectful of such a noble breed, but sometimes you just have to extract some revenge with silly hats and cake.

Well now I had best get back to the grindstone.    I still have quite a few large pieces of Ghastlie fabric with big holes cut into them, to use up.  Speaking of which (Ghastlie Fabric that is) -  I have seen sneak peaks of the new range on the magical interweb today, and it is a giggle - there are babies in prams and pregnant people - ooooh the mind boggles).

Bye for now.

  1. You seem to haven't taken it well, I think I would have sent a certain pooch to reform school! By the way, those were really good looking shoes, especially the red ones! Where did you see the new Ghastlie Fabric?


I would love to hear from you, just so I know I am not talking to myself - the cat is tired and so is the dog!
