I have been under the weather for the past week. Somehow I got a nice case of bronchitis and it kicked my butt. I'm feeling better now, and actually did some sewing yesterday. Up until then all I could handle was a little handwork.
I wanted to make a couple of Halloween wallhangings for my grandsons. Quite some time ago, one of my friends from the Quilting Bee forum (then Quilting Passion) sent me a whole stack of Halloween 9 patches. They have been laying around for a few years and when discovered again, I decided to use them for the wall hangings. The first one I decided to do as a cut up 9 patch. The quilting pattern I used was a spider web pantograph. Looked really easy, NOT!! It was very hard to have the lines intersect where they should, but I think after I wash it, it will be less noticible.
I also saw a table runner on this site, Pleasant Home, and just had to try it. It is soo cute. No pattern, so mine is somewhat different, but basically the same. Hopefully I will get it layered and quilted this week. I plan to do straight line quilting only. (It looks crooked, but it's not, lol. I didn't get it smoothed out totally.)
And, finally, this has nothing to do with fall, here are some thimbles I got in a thimble swap. They are so cute. Not sure what I will do with them yet.
OH!!! Had to show you just one more picture. Looks fallish, and Halloweenish to me. It was taken on a hike at the Biltmore Estate. I thought it was the most beautiful dead thing I have ever seen, lol.
The weather is so nice and crisp today. Makes me feel happy. I think we will walk at the arboretum then go to the Western NC fair just to look around.
