My Post for the Ghastlies Blog Hop

Hello, welcome, and Happy Halloween!!  Today is day 7 of the Ghastlie Blog Hop!  I hope you've been visiting everyone's blogs and checking out all the absolutely wonderful projects!!

I made a couple of paperback book covers for my first project.  I think they turned out cute!!




I love Sebastian!  He's the perfect Halloween Kitty!!

I also made a casserole cover and a hot pad.  Ok  - - So I KNOW the binding around the hot pad is not a very good job....  I was getting so tired.  I have soo learned - - DON'T SEW WHEN YOU'RE TIRED!!





I followed the tutorial posted over at 2 Little Hooligans.  You can see that post here!

Be sure to leave a comment - I love comments!!  AND ~~  I'll be picking a name from the comments Friday night for someone to win one of the book covers.  And I'll be picking a name tonight at 10 pm and sending it over to Madame Samm Ghastlie and the name will be entered for a big prize!!!  Here's what you can win!

  3. A Sebastian book cover is just Ghastlie must have. The cassarole cover is just a super way to go to a pot-luck dinner on Halloween night. Thank you for sharing your Ghastlie venture with all of us.

  4. I love that you found a pattern for food carrier warmer. It's always nice to go to a party with a custom made project and people ask you "where'd you get that" and you'd be like "made it" just bought the fabric. :)

    So cool when people ask as well "make me one or I want one.." It's nice to hear when people like what you make. :)

    Please enter me in the giveaway. Thanks!
