Hi Everyone!
I'm going to try and post some pictures of my tops that I mentioned in my last post.
Here are my Scnibbles tops for October. The first is all pumpkin prints. The background fabric is to busy I feel.
The second was fussy cut and modified from the pattern leaving out the star point on the inner diamond, it still needs it's borders.
Both are completely from my stash.

I haven't worked on my Hocuspocusville for a few days. Here are the 3 of 12 houses that are done. The fourth one is almost done and I'll try to post that when it is.

I didn't mention in my earlier post that I just fell in love with Any Witch Way in Quilt Maker. I love taking a regular sized pattern and making a mini from it. It's not a true mini, just much smaller. The second picture are 2 smaller sizes on top of the normal size, they still need borders. the mini measures 9 1/2" square before borders.

I'm learning how to post pictures and using this blog. Sorry for the awkward layout, but hopefully you can see what I've been up to!

What a beautiful Golden day. Yellow is a main color in the foliage in my area this year. Everything has a golden touch.

On the quilting front, I finished my "Cindy Lou Who" top for the "Year in Schnibbles" group. I am currently working on a second one with a Thanksgiving theme. Last month was "Winter White", I finished that top too on time. Now I only have to find the time to layer and quilt them. It seems I have become a topper. I joined this group hoping to use my stash stitch by stitch. Maybe I will finally finish some because they are smaller.

I'm also working on "Hocuspocus" by Crabapple Hill. I'm almost finished stitching my fourth house. I was hoping to have it at least embroidered by Halloween. I had better get my butt in gear. Material Mary pushed me off the fence on this one. She was posting her progress on hers and then I found a perfect fabric for the border and just had to make on for me. Halloween is my favorite time of year.

I'm starting this blog to keep track of my progress and have a link to the wide world. I hope to learn how to post pictures of interesting items to me. Maybe they will be to you also. I read so many other blogs and am inspired by so many. Thank you all.
