First up is block eight of the Jingle Belle BOM:
Speaking of the guild, we have donated fabrics and supplies that are sold a few times a year to raise funds for the guild. The last time we had such a sale, the organizer gal had some fabric that no one had taken an interest in, for over a year. I offered to take it and make charity items with it. I made 12 pillowcases in pastels. The photo doesn't do them justice though.
Since I have cats, I keep any live green plants in my studio. I have a few orchids and one pineapple plant in there. Imagine my surprise one day, when this appeared amongst the orchids:
It is some type of fungi. It lived for a few days and then just died off.
This last photo does not begin to do justice to what the meaning is behind it:
Jaye, I thought of you the whole time as I soldiered through and worked to finish this quilt. Thanks for the push!
That's it for today. I think I will link up to Nina's "Off the Wall Friday" this week. Happy Halloween! And happy sewing!
