I have been thinking about Halloween a lot but haven't gotten to the point of making my treats this year. I have the stash to make up some fun things but Quilt Market is on my mind! I was looking at some past ideas and they made me hungry! Read all about it here. What kind of treats are you making up this year? I am looking forward to eating some crocodile eyes ...

or how about some dragon's snot? It is delish when topped with some brain.

The kids' favorites are the specimens that they get to take home!

Then I can unwind with some wizard's brews. You can't beat the three flavors!

It's always fun to sport a new look. I have a few years before they have to shave but these are cute!

If we get sick from all of the candy, don't worry, I have a couple of doctors around the house!

Remember to visit all of the websites for Jill Finley's home sweet home Blook Tour. She also has a grand prize giveaway on her blog. My giveaway ends tonight! Make sure that you leave a comment there to enter!

home sweet quilt Blook Tour!

Hi, Lil' A here. Welcome to the second day of Jill Finley's home sweet quilt Blook Tour! Aurifil did a great job yesterday!

Mom doesn't know this but we reviewed this book. She's making breakfast and we want to eat. I have the help of my  brother, Big A. Together we will give you an unbiased review of this new quilt book written by Jill and published by Martingale & Co.

The photos in the book are beautiful and we think that this quilt is our favorite. We like the projects on the chair too!

Do you want to see some of Mom's favorites? We know that she loves this one on the chair.

Mom says that Miss Finley make very pretty quilts and she does some amazing applique work.

Mom loves this one a lot because she loves words on quilts. This quilt includes food so we like it too.

Wanna see some more great photos? Martingale & Co. has some over here. We think that the book is beautiful. The instructions are clear and the diagrams are great!

Guess what? One lucky winner will win an e-book version of home sweet quilt. We hit Mom's stash of books and we are going to give that winner a copy of her new book, Sew Merry and Bright, too! Don't tell please because we don't want a time out or something. Tell us what you love about quilting. We will give away a SECOND copy of mom's book to you if you tell us what you thought about our review. We'll choose a name next Sunday. Deadline to enter is Sunday, October 21, 2012 at midnight.

Follow Mom here on this blog so that you'll know who won the books. She's been working on a top secret new website. It is almost finished. We'll tell you what it's all about here or on Facebook

So, run out to your local quilt shop to buy Miss Finley's awesome book! You won't regret it! 

Make sure that you follow along on this awesome blook tour. All of the details and info on the participants are here. We think that Miss Finley is very clever. Blook Tour. Get it?

It's Time To Get Back To Regular Programming!

Hey everyone! Remember me? Yeah, me, your old friend, Linda. It is time to get back to this ol' blog. The last post was in August and that is about the time that I got sick. It was like a bad cold that continually sucked all of my energy away and I still have a tickle but the worst is over. Let's just forget it happened. I don't want to do it again. I literally haven't sewn in months, I've worked slowly and steadily. Now that fall is here, it's crunch time.

So, for the next few weeks it will suddenly feel as though I have so much to share with you! First, I am happy to announce that I will be part of my friend Jill Finley's Blook Tour! Clever isn't she? That's why she's my friend! Martingale did a fabulous job on her book and I can't wait to show all of you! Make sure that you hang around because you could win her book! Here's the exciting line up:

Saturday, October 13: Aurifil Threads []
Sunday, October 14: Linda Lum DeBono []
