A pillow?

What'cha think?  A cute pillow with some bright Halloween prints around the outer edges with a ruffle?  Ideas?

Never too early for Halloween!

Going backwards, a little

Back to July....I made my Little Bo Sheep block for July.  I have redone the block with  few minor alterations.  Once again , I will make this pattern available for free for a month.  After September 20, 2015, there will be a small fee.  It is currently  available on my Craftsy page.  Thanks for stopping by and taking a peek!

A little closer look,

I know...I know...it's not September yet.   But...only two short weeks away.  I thought I would show my new block for Little Bo Sheep with it's September theme. 

I am making this pattern available for free  on Craftsy.  Here's a link to the pattern  Bo on Craftsy, which will be free until September 15, 2015.  After that date there will be a small fee.

Those autumn leaves are just beginning to fall.  Bo is ready to enjoy all those delicious apples!  Yum!

My father-in-law had a neighbor who, invariably during the summer, would always ask..."Hot 'nuff for ya, Dave?"  Now..how hot is hot enough?  I guess it all comes down to perspective.  But it has been "nuff" for me!  :)))

Little Bo Sheep, on the other hand, has been enjoying her summer.  A nice, new pair of sunglasses and a BIG piece of watermelon!  Looks like she should have tried the seedless variety! ;)

This is one of the  blocks I have prepared for a new yearly project.  Each block will feature Bo with a special outfit or activity for the month.  Anyone interested in joining me?

How can it be?  July, already??   A half of a year gone by?  Zoom.......I thought I would have a few more projects completed by now.  I've already seen some things about Halloween!

Anyway, I did finish the July Snow Happy Heart.  Another cutie from Anne Sutton of Bunny Hill Designs.

A look at the overall block in my quilt.
And, yet another new idea....monthly blocks highlighting my Little Bo Sheep.  These will be able to be used as individual blocks for different uses, or as an overall full-size quilt.   Rather than start at the beginning of the year, here she is for July, being so very patriotic with her 'liberty' hat and flag.

Happy July Bo!

Thanks for stopping by!  Hope every one is having a great summer!

Snow Happy Hearts - June

Another month and a new Snow Happy Heart!  Here is June's heart from Anne Sutton of Bunny Hill Designs:

Here are a few shots of a special project I made for a friend of mine to celebrate her birthday.  This one is called "Spider Plant."  My friend dislikes spiders immensely. ;)  Of course, I had to make something with spiders!
The three main spiders.  One to wish upon a star to never have another spider in your house again.  Another with a bulls eye...aim and stomp!  And the third, have a heart - let them go.

Snow Happy Hearts

I finished the latest Snow Happy Hearts snow girl at the beginning of the month.  Forgot to post a picture! 

I can not believe that this one is almost half way there!
