Wickedly Wicked and Creepy Me

Today's my day to show you my
  WICKED and Creepy Carol side...

Thanks to Madame Samm and Wicked Wendy for this wicked week of hopping. I do think Wendy showed her really, really wicked side by putting me on the last day of this hop with her. Have you seen all those other amazing ladies showing their Wicked projects today? Wow! Plus, there's That Other Lady posting today who is SO, SO, SO competitive...but of course, I'm not the least bit competitive!
Thursday, October 31st

I saw this online while searching for some ideas and managed to get it made before my sewing machine was packed away. I can't find the pattern to tell you who made it, but I can tell you it is in a box somewhere and I'm sure I'll find it by next Halloween.

Linda from Buzzing and Bumbling made a really amazing quilt during last year's Wicked. I got a quilt kit from her and decided that was going to be my project for this hop. I totally screwed it up! I cut the fabric the wrong sizes and no matter how I tried to fix it, the damage was done. I really loved her pattern so I substituted some other fabric I had in my stash. You can get her wonderful quilt pattern HERE.

Once we were moved, my sewing machine and fabric were the first things to be unpacked...and my toothbrush, of course...so I started in on a few more projects.

My Monkey Boys had their own ideas for my Just Call Me "Frankie" quilt and how I should make it unique for them. Using a combination of The Lion Quilt and Just Call Me Frankie, these are what they designed:

"Draco"
(Really, I ironed him, but the trip to the park got him all puckered up.
Maybe he was just a little short on blood or something.)

"Sand Wolf"
(My werewolf HAS TO be gray, Grandma!...said Monkey Boy #2)

 "Mumley"
The Mummy is not quite finished (sorry) but it will be soon. I started to make this in all white,
but then I realized it would be used by a four-year-old so it wouldn't stay white for long.

I do love giveaways...sooo

Sunshine Girl said...

What fabulous projects! I love them all - particularly like the way you have changed your mind about giving a four year old a white quilt - that's the kind of thing I think half way through a project too! Thanks for sharing.

Heleen Groot said...

Great showing today Carol, and during a move no less! Are you sure you are not wonder woman?

Debby said...

I think we can all tell there is something going on between you and that other lady, you ladies are so funny with this back and forth bantering. Your projects are great! The blankets are so cute!
