One reason for not blogging much is the demonic, time-sucking Facebook. On the other hand, thanks to said demon, I won a book from Martingale for suggesting a name for the star block on their lunchroom floor. "Martingale Star" seemed pretty obvious to me, but apparently it was a winner, so lucky me! I have all three of Judy Hopkins "Around the Block" books, but it looks like this book has even more blocks and I do love her multiple size cutting information. Thanks to Martingale!

One of my latest projects is a block of the month from ThimbleCreek, a quilt shop in Concord, CA. Those who know me, also know that I adore Halloween and have several fabulous Halloween quilts in progress. I plan to leave one for each of the kids when I can no longer enjoy them. This one is called Ichabod Hollow and was designed by Joe, one of the owners of ThimbleCreek. The applique portion is nearly done and I have the picket fence and star fabric waiting for my attentions. Next week is a quiltfest with Kathy B. and Becky in Lompoc, and I hope to make a bit of progress on this.

Congrats on your win. I had to leave FB for exactly the reason you describe, I don't miss it and love the "found" time! That Halloween quilt is simply haunting~

Yeah. You're here. Oh I'm so happy to see you. Here. I can say so much more than I can on FB. Like "I've darn sure missed you're quilting and I was beginning to think you weren't stitching and I didn't think it was proper to whine & complain about this in public!"

Why is a Blog not as public as FB? That's crazy and I'm nuts but I'm sure happy to see Ichabod Hollow because I love your work. Next week is quiltfest,eh? Enjoy it!
