ARE YOU ready to be spooked, wicked and inspired...ON DAY 1 of our Wicked Blog hop?



This is on our front door...  put it up yesterday...
Halloween has always been a very special day for my
DH and I... We met on Halloween and 10 years later
after numerous proposals...we married on Halloween...
Many would be very surprised at that...
It has been shared by many they thought we would marry on Valentines
day or Thanksgiving, very special days for us too...

HOWEVER the story is... Halloween is our DAY! 

The day we were married it was the warmest Halloween
on record, on our front door my dear friends
 found this groom and his bride...
We married in our home...
Every year since, it adorns our front door...

 Many of our neighbours have remarked
they think we are pretty wicked in a nice way...

I like to think we are still  WICKED IN LOVE!

Now who of thought we would begin WICKED
with a love story....? :)

WELL here we are ...
Wicked WENDYhas been waiting for this
day for months..let's not keep her waiting any longer...
She is our cheerleader in residence...
She has been responsible for gathering you all 
and keeping you inspired and organized...

The whole schedule can be found on our side bar
it will link you to Wendy's blog....you have got 
to read all she has up there in preparation of WICKED...




LOOOK who is up on very first day of our 
Wicked Blog HOP.
If you are new to us welcome...
if you are known to us...welcome...
I think you are all in for a wicked time...


Monday, October 22nd




























This was a difficult day to choose...there were
so many wonderful projects..but what stood out are the
following..

our top 2 




This one almost looked like a painting...well it is in fact...using hues of oranges
and golds look at the placement of these amazing strips of fabric...
and by golly a gorgeous pumpkin to boot...



and take a peak at the detail here.. her fabric choices were perfect..the stones,
the trees, a lovely block indeed...she made others that were equally 
impressive...YES my dear you got Wicked even in your country ...wink..



and most honourable mention for outstanding project...



And really what would be Wicked without some of this family....
Don't you just love the pink border and the black...lovely quilted 
to boot...oh yes indeed wicked...any room at that table...?

Beginning MONDAY we are serving a whole lot of WICKED!


 What can I say....
a spell has been cast...

I am feeling wicked..... 

here are some sneak peaks...







Wicked is around the corner
it is without a doubt
the scariest time you will ever witness
OHHH ---please don't shout...

We are all trying to rest
and stitch away our days 
We are getting ready for the test
before we all fade away....

 Sew be patient as we stir
the wickedness of our brew
YOU are all in for days
of goblins, witches and goo....

OUR WICKED WENDY
is trembling, she is scared beyond the moon
I saw her biting into a staircase
instead of her lovely spoon...
She tells us everything is fine
we know that this is not  true
the only thing that is missing 
now is  YOU, and YOU and YOU..

Be back very soonnnnnnnnnnn

( poem by Mdm Samm)

Blook Tour....not Book or Block....BLOOK....yes come and see...


OH LOOK IT's .....

JILL FINLEY the lady who made this HAPPEN...
You know the HOLIDAY LANE pillow blog hop
that is coming in November...

What do you know? The same JILL 
who just created this E-BOOK with That Patchwork Place
( they have many ebooks now) 


 Yes the same JILL who made this most amazing quilt...
OK, I am not known to be too excited about quilts....
FEW really catch my heart and soul...

THIS ONE DID IT! 
It reminds me of GERBERAS, my favourite flower
next to daisies...And yes by golly it also reminds
me of daisies too...

Jill calls this one Petal Pushers...
a perfect name actually..
ahhhh Petal Pushers...




It reminds me too of how much I love being a lady, a MADAME....
  And how this MADAME would love to crawl
under this one -on my very own window bench ( I have one in my kitchen) and think
about "What other emotions will JILL be stirring in me, in you, in us?"


I don't think there is one project in her new book, I would not want
to call my very own... She has a red, black and white I ADORE too! 

But I come back again to this one...the way she shares
on how to make those stems...
you know those green swirly
things on this quilt...

SEW EASY...why did I not think of that...?
I will tell you WHY? 
BECAUSE I am no designer....I just like to think I am at times... .....
I want to be this good...I want to make this QUILT
....I will need these fabrics...or at least the same colours..

AGAIN, Jill has done it again, has me excited
about a simple design, made by a special lady
with a special book,  her very own
Aurifil threads ( take a peak on her blog)
and a brand new collection!

OHHH-- did I mention her newest collection
it is called  BEYOND THE GATE...
link here to see it all...

Would you like a copy sent directly to you ?
this HOME SWEET QUILT ebook?

WELL let me know....
WE will choose all the  winners at the end of
JILL's BLOOK Tour....
