Give Thanks


With November rapidly approaching, our thoughts are turning on being thankful.
This new garden flag, expresses just that.

These flags are so easy, when using "Crafter's Edge" Alphabet dies and 
Rounded Dresden dies.
I love their Crossover II cutting machine, with the multiple pressure settings on it, 
but did you know...
these dies can be used in an Accuquilt GO cutter with a conversion plate.
Oh...and all their dies are on sale until the end of the month for 20% off.
Once you add your dies to the shopping cart and go to the checkout, 
you will see the discount.
Better hurry if you are interested, there are only a few days left!

Thermoweb products make the construction of the flag a breeze...
get it flag, breeze. OK, I'll keep my day job!
But seriously...using HeatNBond projects make it so easy.
The pattern is printer friendly. If you hate tracing you will love 
You just pop a sheet into your printer and print all your applique designs.
Then to keep your flag weather and waterproof, just paint 
 HeatNBond Liquid Vinyl on your project.

This series of flags are designed using the "Gray Bunny Garden Flag Stand". It's a nice tall 51" x 15' wide stand, you can find on Amazon HERE for under $20.

You can find the free pattern on the Thermoweb blog

Ghastly Ghouls Blog Hop

If it's "creepy" and it's "spooky", it has to be Carol's "Ghastly Ghouls" blog hop time.
You likely know that Carol, Carla and I, are all Halloween crazy and lets just say...
this time of the year...well you know!
Thanks Carol, for bringing out the kid, in all of us.

Did that scare the "bejeebers" out of you?

Possibly this "Ghost"...

or "Bat" would do the trick!

When they are combined they are all together 'ooky, don't you agree?
This is one of Angie's patterns from her "Applique Garden " website.
 There are always 6 or 7 quilts going on at a time and new blocks
 are released weekly.
She has such fun patterns, that I have subscribed to it for years. 

You can check it out for yourself  HERE.

With it being the "Ghastly Ghouls" blog hop, I do have a little giveaway.

You may remember that I went "Java Jacket" crazy last month over on the 
"Thermoweb" blog.

This one, done in my favorite "Ghastly" fabric, just begged to be given
 away during this hop. Leave me a comment, telling me your most "Ghastly" Halloween  delight, and I will pick one winner,
Sunday Oct 31st.
I'm just sending the "jacket", because it fits in an envelope, so this time even if your international you can participate in the drawing. 
You can find my post with a free pattern for these jackets HERE

Now be off with you, to visit my fellow "Ghastly Ghouls" bloggers and see what trouble they are stirring up today!

Pumpkin Potholders

"Perpetually Possessed Pumpkin Potholders"
Bet you can't say that fast 5 times. 
These possessed guys stitch up fast and have a pocket at the top to protect your fingers.
So, they aren't so bad, after all!
This is a "Wicked Wednesday" project on our "Cackling Stitches Group" on Facebook.
It's just one of those little perks we like to throw in from time to time.
If your already a member, you download the pattern while it is free.
If you are not a member, you can find them in my Etsy shop

Or join our group  HERE

Be sure to post your "possessed potholders" when they are done on our Facebook page.
We love seeing your projects!
