'Wicked' is Haunting my Place Today!!!!!!/Giveaway

I have been anxiously awaiting this day to show you my blocks for this hop...welcome all!!
Before we get down to my projects; I want to thank Wendy, our wonderful host for this blog hop...
and Madame Samm, our fantastic cheerleader for so many of these fun experiences.

This was so much fun for me...from looking for projects, to the applique, right down to the FMQ...yes!!!!  I said FMQ...lol.  I ended up taking bits and pieces from pictures and projects that I found and put them together to make it mine.

First we have the pumpkin and that dreaded black cat...

Who can resist the spiders and bats?....
Ohhhhhhh little devils are lurking in and around this tree....gobblins have scared the black right out of the cat!!!!
Who do you suppose owns this broom anyway?.....    


Now to put them together......I love it!!

How about a close up of each block now..............







Remember this???






Well she has got around....lol.  She was featured in Martingale's newsletter this month...she now looks like this....in cushion form.

I actually enjoyed the FMQ in these pieces.  The class that Marla, Connie and Rose and I took a week ago...was what I needed for more confidence and relaxation....It is just meandering, but you wouldn't believe how much more I am relaxed with it.   There may be hope!!!!

Now; I can't do a hop without a giveaway!!!!!!!!!! Here it is:

A wall hanging kit.....the fabric and pattern included to make this cute Halloween piece.

To enter: 1. Just leave a comment about anything you like.
               2. Followers get a 2nd entry,old or new followers. Just leave a comment telling me....ok?

I will randomly draw at the end of the hop...make sure I can reach you please.
I will try to answer all comments on this post...email is too slow; so thanks ahead of time for your patience.
              Here is the list of spooks taking part today.....have a wickedly good time!!!!
Also; check with Madame Samm(link above) to see the top picks for the day.
