    Welcome back vickig626. So good that you have formulated a plan. Looking forward to seeing your progress.

    Franky is turning out differently than designed as well. I have decided not to do the 4 paper-pieced characters around the outer border as Franky will be overwhelmed. I've also decided that Franky has become too much fun to use my horror movie fabric for a backing. I already have a plan for that fabric, though.

    Thanks for the compliments about Franky. I'm enjoying working on my home made monster.

    Franky is surrounded. Still need to add the burgundy around the edges and then a wider border and then ???

    Thank you. Yes, the embellishing will be fun. I have really creepy yet fun eye beads for him as well as oodles of spider buttons and lots of other Halloween buttons I can add.

    Franky will not be completed for Halloween 2012 but should be done by the end of the year. Things are just too intense later this month and all of November. I have no idea what possessed me to schedule craft fairs for every weekend in November, and two-day ones at that!!!

    A lot of ideas are going through my head for finishing Franky, both top and backing.

    How are everyone else's projects coming along?

    Oh but the important part is that Franky is in one piece for Halloween!
    The rest will follow when you are able ... He'll be happy to wait for you!!

    Oh fun ... a Mr. Spock stash!
    That's part of the fun ... grab things that will work as you see them, and have them ready when you get to the sewing part. I must admit, Miss Peep is getting quite a little stash of her own!

    I'm sure I'm not alone when I say I am looking forward to seeing Mr. Spock. I'm sure DH will be thrilled.

    And I want to see a sheep or two by the end of November, QuiltE.

    QuiltE and works4me you crack me up. I like both of your signatures exactly how I feel.
