Witch Hazel

I've been away from blogland for quite a long time and now it's almost Halloween!!!
Here is my newest finished quilt. It's a Cheri Saffiote-Pyne's design called "Witch Hazel".I used linen thread to make the sprinckled couple spider web with a primitive stitch.
This is one of the most easiest quilt that I have ever made.
Yey! I could add another Haloween Spookytacular collection!

In the dark dark hallow's night
Only the Jack-O-Lantan guide your light
He may knock on your door
and make you scared that much more
Open the Door! Open the Door!
If you dare!

Don't you love motivation?

I just stopped by some of my blogland friend's blogs the other day and AHhhhhhhhh!!!! Yup, I screamed " Ahhhhuuuuuuuuggggghhhhhh!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!".
I saw every one's quilts were so full of beautiful autumn colors! I see Libby has finished her gorgeous "Spooky tree" wallhanging and Judy is just about finish.

Wait up ladies, I have that pattern too, but I haven't even touched it yet.

After seeing all the gorgeous work going on I am full of motivation. I going to pull my fabrics out and get back to my quilting business. I going to double-time it and hopeful I'll make it in time for Halloween......

Newest XXXX

I just finished this pin keeper. It took little to no time to stitch and I distressed it with tea dye.
I'm so in love with Stacy Nash's creations. Her style is so primitive and perfect for my taste.
Well, which one will be next....Hummmmm....? :-)


これはStacy Nashさんのパターンで、最近彼女のパターンにもろハマってます。(笑)

What I'm doing right now. I'm cross stitching!
Well, Actually this was one of last year's UFO that I tried to finish before Halloween but I ran out time.
I think I'll make it by this Halloween. :-)
I've been in the "cross stitch er" mode lately.

Here are a few caddies that I bought at antique market recently.
It's actually for kitchen utensils but I thought these would by perfect for holding my cross stitching supply.
I specially love the little bonnet girls with the basket.
Aren't they cute?

Autumn is here, but not in my house.(sigh)

Thank you ladies for encouraging me on my outrageous unpacking process. *S*

Gee.... Is it already October. Leaving Japan I thought my family could be settled in by late August.
So much delay and too many boxes, sigh.....
I wanted to make some Halloween motif quilt.
I already have some patterns but this unpacking process is still continuing and I don't know if I will have enough time to make some Halloween quilt. Autumn and Halloween are two of my (or shall I said OUR, because my Hubby-Dubby love Halloween like a child!) favorite time of year.
I always make Halloween quilt every year, but maybe not this year. Aaaaaaaggguuuuhhhhh, I'm so sad!


本当はね、ハロウィン用のキルトが作りたかったんですけどね。秋到来で、これからが一年の中で一番好きです。 ということで、必然的に毎年、ハロウィンキルトを作ってるんだけど、あぁ、今年は無理そう。(涙)
