Trick Arf Treating

Trick or Treating?
 
Who's ready to go?
 
Neptune!  That's who!
Isn't she adorable in her pumpkin costume?
 
And she really will be trick or treating with the kids tonight.
This will be her first time.  She will be helping them not be scared to go up to the scary houses.
 
Arf! Arf!
Happy Halloween from me and Neptune.

Little Coin Purse Foxes

For the FNSI I worked on these coin purses.
I've already given away two and have two more spoken for.
 
After the first one I've been doing them assembly line style.
 Let me tell you, I've gotten VERY GOOD at putting in Zippers - I can have it in 5 minutes!
 
These have been so much fun to make.
 
And just so that we get enough cutness on this post...
 Here's Lily; being her most cute and adorable self.
 
Happy Stitching,
Linda

Sugar's Quilt (A Finish with Strange Circumstances)

YeeHaw!  I have a another FINISH!
 

It's 28 x28 inch square - okay so now I'm thinking you are not so impressed - but wait!
I started this a long time ago - in February 2011.  And after 3 years, I finished it in one weekend. Okay now you can be impressed.
 
It looked like this
 
I really didn't like it!  So in the drawer it sat.

Last week I was thinking I really ought to finish this quilt - I got up from the couch, walked into my sewing room...

And this is strange.. and I'll let you decide -

and the box I had it in had fallen out of the top of my closet & was laying on the floor.
In ten years I have never had a box just fall from the closet.

So I thought - hmmm....Is God trying to tell me something?
If so, I better get busy.

So I ripped it apart and put in back together - added more material.  Quilted it.
 
Put the binding on.
I sewed the binding onto the back and flip it over to the front - then sewed it on with a decorative stitch.  Let me tell you it's SUPER FAST.  How do you like that cute little strip for the binding?  I think it adds so much to the quit.
 
And the proof is in the pudding - here's the owner of her quilt enjoying it.
 
(Yikes! Poor quality picture.) She's gotten old and can't jump up on the couch to cuddle and get warm with us.  Sure I could have given her an old towel, but she's spoiled and loves the quilts. I'm happy she has her own little quilt.
