WIPs halloween style.

I'd like to sit here and type that I just can't believe it's been so long since I blogged.
But I just can't.
I just kinda lost my blogging mo-jo this last 2 weeks.
Maybe it was school starting?
Maybe it was that I took my time creating "Pages" near my blog header, in which only 2 are finished and published?
They take a long time to create for my tutorials because I have made so many.
Maybe it's because my husband bought Netflix and I have watched the entire first season of Glee?
At any rate,
I have a couple of projects/ WIPs on my cutting table.

I bought a charm pack from J'Ellens called Trick or Treat by Moda....
Cut it up, added some older Moda Halloween lines and some dots and voila!
Instant halloween table runner in progress.
It's a 9-patch, elongated, narrow, my own design and fun :)

While watching Glee and various other Netflix movies I have been stitching more of these guys.
Note, that I started them in August last year....nearly 1 year to the day!
It's a pattern by Garden Moon and there are 12 felt ornies in which I have finished 5.

I am pretty pleased with how these are sewing up because the circles are so perfect.
I used my Go! cutter circle die and my Sizzix cutter circle die (my DH bought me like 10 years ago).
The combination made the circles a perfect 1/4" different just like the pattern.
This holiday weekend could be hit or miss for me in terms of blogging because I have a bunch of family coming.
and I mean a BUNCH.
but it's all good and we are happy to have them.

I've been busy watching GLEE on Netflix, too. I like to get so much hand work done that way, but honestly, I'm quicker if I sew without looking at something. Once a multi-tasked, always a multi-tasked, I guess. Love the ornaments!
