I love seeing what everyone is doing. Those witches shoes are great, Sherone. Love the costume and potholders. Grace your quilts are a wonderful project.

I'll post some pics here soon. Most of mine are posted in the UFO, finished 10" squares projects, or BOM threads here in the Stitching and Crafting Room. I'd love to have some of you join us in the 10" squares swaps or in the monthly BOM.

Oh dear, Darlene! Your grandma is amazing. I can't imagine making a 12 foot rug! I think I would get burned out. She has some very inspirational motivation.

Love the rug, Grace, you did a great job! And I agree Theresa, your Grandson is a lucky little boy. Lightening bolts on a hot pad! Krista they are so cute. I've had my sewing machine in to be cleaned and the tension looked at . All's well now so I'm looking forward to getting back to it!

CJ, I love your potato bag material! It's really pretty!

Oh Grace, how I'm jealous of your large bowl of chocolate ice cream!

This last weekend I finished a pair of crochet slippers for a friend. It was a fun new challenge. I have now started making her a white pair. With how much she loves them I think I will be making me a pair.

CeeJay, nice potato bag. Do they work well?

Krista, you amaze me at how fast you crochet things. Really nice slippers!

Grace, my downfall, ice cream!!!

Darlene,
I've actually never used a potato bag! Gonna have to make one for myself and use it! I made this one for my niece because she asked me to . . . hope she likes it!

I've used a potato bag before, and they seem to work pretty good. Krista, what cute slippers! I went a little "batty" during the hurricane. A good friend is really into Halloween so I made her this little guy. Matthew ended up being much a due about nothing for us. A little wind and rain, but nothing to be concerned about. Unfortunately those folks by the beaches were not as fortunate.

CeeJay, LOL because how many times we make something for someone else and never for ourselves!

Judy, cute bat! Glad you're ok. My sister is in Gulfport and was ok too. High winds only. Was glad she was on the opposite side! Know others who were in the line of the storm and they were also fine.

Darlene,
That is sooooooo true! I used to make these adorable sunbonnet girls, using a liter soda bottle and a lot of other stuff. They are so cute and I've made dozens of them, including one for my daughter, but I don't have one!

P.S. I think I will try to make me a potato bag. I cut extra pieces of batting, but have to find pieces of 100% cotton fabric to finish it. 100% cotton is what is recommended!

Today I finished the binding on 2 quilts and ironed 14 of the pennants for my Fall banner. Only a few more to sew and iron and then I will sew them to the connecting binding or twine - I haven't decided that, yet.

Tomorrow I hope to put the binding on one more quilt (the quilt has been on my bed for 1-1/2 years without binding - LOL!) and make squares from 2 BOMs I take part in. I have 2 more quilts that need binding, but those will be later. I also have to work on 2 Christmas table runners.

I love the baked potato bags - and use them all the time. Yes, 100% cotton is the best for them, PLUS 100% cotton batting. Any other fibers in the fabric or batting can cause them to burn/melt in the microwave.

I also love making microwave bowl potholders. They are the handiest thing to use - so you don't have to have potholders to remove bowls from the microwave. Your bowl is already sitting IN the potholder.

Thanks, guys! :)

I have now finished the gingerbread house felt ornament as well!



I'm about halfway through putting together a bunch of "ghost" tootsie roll pops for DS's classroom treat for Halloween.



I will stand them all up in rows by pushing the sticks into a sheet of white Styrofoam I've been saving. :)

Jaime, cute ginger bread house and fun ghost. I don't do Halloween but how about a Tootsie Roll scarecrow using burlap. May give it a try.

I finished brown work tea towel so later today I will iron on a pattern and start embroidering another tea towel.
