W.I.P. Wednesday

Sooze put out the call for a W.I.P. Wednesday post, so here goes.

I'm working hard to keep up with my Block of the Month Happy Hauntings.

I finished block #1, the man in the moon and block #2, the blackbirds with candy apples.

I finished all the prep work on the #3 the candelabra and #4, two ghosts and all I need to do is stitch down the applique. Hopefully, I'll have that done before the end of the month when block #5 arrives.

I was a bit annoyed that the candelabra block was missing the fabric for the candelabra, but I had just the thing to substitute and that seemed easier than waiting to get some from Thimble Creek. Had it been a background fabric, I'd probably been a bit fussier.

The preparation is such a pain, but I do love to applique and I really love this project.
Here is a sneak peek at the whole thing :

I doubt it will be finished for Halloween next year, but perhaps 2009.

What's your WIP this Wednesday??

Kathy doesn't do the "A" word :-))
But Jan does just fabulous work. Can't wait to see this all finished!

I just love this pattern, I must do one for myself. I'm presently working on Bunny Hill's Pumpkin Hill, Rabbits Prefer Chocolate and love Strawberry Hill. Oh sew many things, sew little time. Thanks for sharing your pictures! I love them.
