Happy Halloween

I had a draft ready for posting on the 10th but we had a huge storm that affected our Internet line. The following morning we were still off line. I couldn't do anything about it as I had to leave for the airport at 5.30am. Wonderful 18 days in Cape Town, my children had shows in the same week, so I was lucky to see both their shows. My sister who also lives in Cape Town arrived home from America. All in all it was perfect timing.

Barb is one of 45 designers of Quilting Gallery's Glorious Autumn Quilters Block Party. Her block is just too adorable!! click on the button at the top of my blog to see the designs todate.
I was the lucky winner of her giveaway. She sent me this gorgeous charm pack - I love it!! Thank you Barb.

mini whirlwind is done except for quilting. I made 35 blocks - really fun to make.

 I just loved stitching these. Starting on the applique blocks this week.

Found this little guy on one of the shrubs. Waiting to catch an insect with its lightening fast catapulting tongue.


 My heart goes out to all those affected by hurricane Sandy - OMG!   yesterday I watched CNN - unbelievable,  she was merciless!


  1. Barb is fantastic! Love all the information she shares, her designs and fabric. Love your mini whirlwind, makes the eyes dance all over the quilt. Great embroidery in red. Your chameleon friend looks happy. Hope he found his dinner. Glad that you were able to see your family.

    Have a super great sewing and stitching day. Those affected by Hurricane Sandy are in my thoughts and prayers.

  2. Guess you got the aftermate of cyclone 'Anais'? We got just a little bit rain here. Congrats on the win! Love your stitchery blocks and the mine whirlwind looks great. Cute little fellow in your garden. Always fun to catch up with family and friends. Enjoy your weekend!

  3. Great quilt top and stitcheries. Always fun to look at your accomplishments.
    Cute little chameleon. They are fun to watch.
    Congratulations on your win. Enjoy the lovely fabric.
