Quickie update before absence

Ok....so i lied.....i will post a bit before i go missing for a few weeks while i go into the depths of nail biting anxiety of worrying about my bellydance debut, as well as getting everything done before dec. 25th.


This is one of my paper pieced experiments. I got the pattern from Sewhooked.org , and if you arent sure what it's supposed to be, its supposed to be a broom. Its just one of those fun things i wanted to try.





These are some of the 9 patch swaps i've been doing. 9 people make 9, 9patch squares, and swap. The pinks were from august, blue is september, orange was october, and the pumpkin/starry one was just a random one i made, cause the fabric looked fun.



Now, for more fun stuff. Friends of mine wanted to see Hallowe'en pics...and so they shal receive. The Blair witch thingy is actually made of solid plastic glow in the dark tubes. the lit up ghost in the corner was perfect for showing off that black spider in the webbing.




The pumpkin was carved as usual, but the scratch markings you see on the shell was done with one of those fancy orange rind peelers. dont know what its called, but it did the job with a great effect.





...and now for MY Wombat of the Week......

This is one givin to me by the lady who publishes the blog The Bronze Wombat.

This little guy isnt very big, but he sits to watch everything going on from my computer desk. He's actually not that much longer than my computer mouse.
