My Wicked Blocks Of Terror


I've always had friends and relatives who were considered by others to be different or creepy. 
It's kind of strange, but a few of my classmates in school disappeared after calling me 
"WICKED."

Here I am with my Uncle Frank..he was a great guy!

Having to go to my job every day means that I have to dress and look a little different.
I love when the work day ends or it's a weekend so I can just be ME

To get ready for this WICKEDLY fun blog hop, I took some time off from
getting tattooed and casting spells to practice with applique.
 (You applique pros need to avoid looking too close.)

The pattern for this shoe is by Angie Padilla,
(https://www.myeqboutique.com/Shop/pc/viewCategories.asp?idCategory=170)







This block was a little bigger than the 12.5" blocks above and I added
some crazy blocks I've had sitting around a wickedly long time.

 I played with fire to make this little flower..it felt so naughty
(and wicked) to watch that fabric melt and burn!


I put all those blocks together to make this wall hanging

It didn't feel Wicked enough without at least one Ghastlie block.
I have a plan for this block, but it may take me a while to use it.

Thank you to the fabulously Wicked Wendy for hosting this spooky hop!

A HUGE thanks to the mysterious and magical
 Madame Samm for her behind-the-scenes 
prepping for all the fun hops that we all get to reap the benefits from.

Now fly over and check out these other 
wicked hoppers who are posting today:
