    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.

    I LOVE the original Star Trek -- can't wait to see what you come up with. If DH doesn't love it, you can always send it to me LOL

    My Doctor Who idea is slowly progressing "in my mind". Hoping to start working on it real soon and get pics posted.

    Didn't take a picture last night when I stopped for the evening. I'm using the Pellon fusible interfacing for the appliqued pieces took me all day to just make all the tiny parts. Would of been easier to just glue the pieces on and then satin stitch around them. I will get all the parts sewed on today though for sure. Have a wonderful morning ladies.

    Have an awesome day!

    Here is my candy corn witch and her lil black cat. I just finished running a basting stitch and tomorrow I will start machine quilting. Was a fun little project. My husband is requesting a headless horseman.. I just looked at him. REALLY! I guess a candy corn witch just doesnt do anything for him.. LOL

    Cute!
    Good for you ... one project almost done, and to boot, a new Halloween decoration.

    ............... as for your DHs request?
    Though, because he's so good to you ... how can you say no?

    Ok I finally got caught up reading this thread. Hate it when I get so far behind everyone. lol. First time back to QB in a long time. Life caught me. Lost my son to lymphoma and now am a transplanted Texan to Oklahoma and learning to live alone. Life is very interesting and challenging. The Lord is always with us <This I have experienced in a big way this past year.!!!! I am building my fabrics to join u in this one. Dont know yet just what I will do yet but it will come. If anyone is on here that remembers me. I do needleturn applique and make scenic quilts and relly like old barns . So maybe it will be something to do with owls. How does that sound. Keep all those pics coming and I will try to learn how to post also. More later. Jo
    Landscape quilts and needle turn applique favs.Antlers,Ok

    Jenniky - very cute. Hubby can always keep his headless horseman in whatever area of the house he calls his own.

    Welcome back Jolo - so sorry to hear about your loss. It is good that you seem to be able to pick yourself up and carry on through the grief. So many people can't. I hope that a stash and the QB help you move forward.

    Owls sound wonderful. You could even incorporate a barn, a barn cat, mice. All sorts of fun things. Whatever gets those creative juices flowing.

    Looking forward to hearing, and seeing, more from you.

    Quilting on my witch today. Then I will have to start searching for a headless horseman pattern for hubby.. All else fails I will make my own. Im thinking red, gray and black back drop. But then If I could find the right brown... as he is riding through the forest. Hmmm yup creative juices moving just fine.. LOL

    Jojo - sorry for you loss. Your projects sounds wonderful. Looking forward to seeing your work.
    Have an awesome day!
