A Little Ghoul Made Me Hand Quilt

I've been away from my sewing machine for a few days and took some time to smell the roses.
Okay, so they're not roses, but they were PURPLE and quite lovely.

Feeling slightly panicked that Black Cat Crossing is coming up way faster than I'm sewing,
I decided to hand quilt the project I had brought with me using some crochet thread.

What was I thinking!

I love the look, but I still have a long way to go before this project will be done and it's
been years since I hand quilted anything...oh my, oh my, what have I done!

I'm sure it was a naughty little ghoul who took over my brain to make me do this,
but I love to try new things so we'll see if I can beat the clock and get this thing done.

Sore fingers, hands, and eyes...here I come!

At least my new header is ready for the Black Cat Crossing Blog Hop!
