Creepy Is My Kind Of Thing

That Other Lady knows I lean towards the creepy side of things,
so when this mug arrived I was in Halloween bliss with all its creepiness.
Did any of you hear me howl with joy! I did!

The Purple Creepy Spider might just find it's place next to Creepy Bunny...he'd love it!

The mug is sitting on my Black Cat Crossing project that I'm hand quilting.
I'm still working feverishly to get it done in time for the hop!
(That's Black Cat Crossing fabric from Maywood Studio peeking through.)

I've taken a little time away from hand quilting to sew pillowcases...I love making them!
As old as I am, how did I never make even one.

I think the Monkey Boys will love them!




Riley Blake Designs is still showing off their fabulous flannel 
and you can check out what everyone is making with it here:

 10/3 Just Let Me Quilt (me)
 10/10 Rose and Odin
 10/14 Sew We Quilt
 10/28 Flannel Queen

I made a soft and cuddly nightgown and robe using it...I love that flannel!
(No creepiness went into the making of the nightgown or robe.)

My kiddies would LOVE this cup, yeah, what a great colour combination as well! We are more the "reptile"type kind of family, although I really admire these tarantulas, these spiders are captivating. Have you ever seen their their skinning? Fa-bu-lous!
And of course, your pillow cases are great, my kiddies are now old enough to sew them themselves, that was our programm last easter and now they have 2 per person :-)

Love your Banner Carol, your so talented! Love the Pillowcases too, cute as can be! Now that mug, don't think I could do it. I would be too afraid of something jumping out of it and onto me!! Yikes!! I'll take a pretty feminine mug anyday of the week~
Huggs, Nancy

That's a cute mug....not creepy at all to me. Gotta love a good spider. Cute pillowcases. My first sewing project at age 4 was a pillowcase, then I didn't make another for decades. I think they are just great gifts.... quick, personable, and easy.

Flannel pillowcases will be wonderful to lay a sleepy head upon. I love flannel for night-wear. Yours are lovely. Creative Flannel Bliss...
