Design Wall Monday

Wow, this has been a busy week.
Dr. Jack started
First Rhonda posted this free pattern.  That was right after I had decided that I was not going to start anything new until I was done with the few things I am making for Christmas.








all fused
However, isn’t this terrific?  Here he is all fused and I really already have him appliqued.  I will get him quilted and bound today, hopefully, and then he will be hanging around until Halloween is over.













eyes
So, what do you supposed are these?  Well, they are a small part of a project I offered to do and that I am not at liberty to share. 












bugAnd this is another part.















label 1
In fact, my embroidery machine was hard at work all week.  We made one label that is ready for the quilt on the frame.










DW 10-14-12
In fact I also got another label embroidered, not finished, as well as three insects.  Small things for my design wall but three different projects seeing progress.









fall color
Meanwhile the seasons are changing, even here in the deep south.  Here this tree is called a Sweetgum tree and is the most colorful tree we have on the property.








acorns
We also have several oak trees.  Here you see the little acorns.  There are now hundreds of them on the ground and on the deck.  They are so small they fit in the cracks between the deck boards.  However, they don’t feel very good under bear feet!










DON'T DISTURB
But none of this activity or change is interfering with Ms. Murphy’s beauty sleep.

So, quietly please, hop on over to Patchwork Times to see what other quilters are working on.

thanks for sharing the witch pattern site. I've downloaded it. And, labels... do you just do them in your machine computer or do you have an additional software to do the designing. I want to figure out how to do it but I would prefer just getting a template! Hey, I'm lazy, what can I say!

LOVE LOVE LOVE that pumpkin! And your labels are so cute. I'm thinking about getting me an embroidery machine but just haven't taken that first step yet. And then I see your labels and those cute bugs and gosh... I better do my homework. haha

Really fun jack o lantern pattern--I like your fabric choices! Feels good to have multiple projects inching along, right?

Ms. Murphy is sure enjoying her beauty nap. You have lots of cute things going on this week. Your Mr. Jack turned out darling. I was tempted too, but have too many other projects calling me.
