Forest Art Quilt




Hello all


Do you remember this quilt a long we had - quite a while back....


It was divided into 2 QAL's with the Forest part and after that the Lake...



Here are a few photos that I have of the finished quilts. They are so beautiful it makes me want to cry.
Thanks so much for sharing your amazing work with us all.
Well Done to each of you!!

I never had a chance to make the Lake part (my shoulder was just too sore) but now Im thinking I want to get back to it and finish it....
I really love the flying geese border too ................ maybe I'll be making one too.....not sure.....

Day #5 - Halloween Fashion Week Wrap Up....












Its Day #5 here in Tshwane with loads of clouds in the sky. So I'm guessing 'no laundry then...'



This week we've seen amazing as well as ridiculous fashion.......... some that may even haunt us for a while...





Yep, you've guessed it - today is all about shoes....

We all love our shoes!
From the glitter heels to the flat flip flops we use when no-one else is around.

This gives "Vis Plakkies" (fish flip flops) a whole new meaning...lololol...





 So now, its time to step up and own those ugly shoes....


 Let the runway show begin -
cue scary halloween music.....



I know my son wears his shoes until they somewhat resemble this, but jeepers, this is giving Crocs a run for their money....








and for those who are a tad paranoid....
no-one will know if you're coming or going in these babies....













Oh my, don't these look comfy...

Look they seem to have a tentacle that will stop you from falling over backwards...thanks, I think... I wonder if they come with a mandatory leg cast? or a long stick to help you to walk...



















Dang! flames too.... for when you're late and want to walk fast.... or how about these.... you wanted to wear heels but you also wanted to go barefoot... best of both worlds. Looks like she was angry at her feet - but only the back part and now they're in shoe jail....


WTH!!

For trainee ballerinas maybe....

who has time for this? I imagine this world must be really flat.... can you think how you would climb stairs with these...

Im starting to think that the life on the runway must be really bizarre...



Let's get back to those cute Halloween shoes....
Oh look! Cute shoes that look like her stockings... got to love those!
and a pair of strap on halloween shoes... that's really cute too...






Thanks so much for being part of the Halloween Fashion Week -
I hope you've had a little break from the ordinary and maybe even a little chuckle...


Its time for the designer to walk the runway
Thanks for your support!!




Today's pattern is another 12" (31cm) pattern on the intermediate level.













This is an update of our week....





I'll be uploading all the Halloween patterns and then some more to my  Craftsy Shop










Someone call that girl with those dusters on her feet.......

Hello to all!!

If you're back on Day #4 - then Good for You...
We've had a strenuous week of non stop Halloween Fashion.....



Today we get into the Small Accessories.....





Hair pieces and Brooches.......however unfortunate....


Great for that Steam Punk Witch meets Hipster Halloween look............
Gulp!!



Let's take a quick sneak peek behind the curtain before our models walk the plank.... I mean runway...


 Oh Dear!

Its like a war zone back here!!


Its all just hands and pulling and yanking and poking of eyes..........

Lets rather go outside...........




Our guy on the street has something -
who wore it better?  what's that, Oh NO, You're going to get your .......... kicked....



Well, let's rather get back to the hair and brooches -

 



 Just in from France...
and just right for Halloween Fashion Week too...

Those brooches are really making a statement...
just hope animal control isn't here!







Here's a few of our 'More is More' looks....

 









  and the winner of our Best Brooch award definitely goes to....

Spiders all over me....


Yikes, what were you thinking?



 Today's Free for the day pattern is an Amber set Halloween Brooch with black Onyx
Amazing on any LBD.....

Pattern measures 12" (31cm) and is on the Intermediate level.







Have a great Day!!

Day #3 - Halloween Fashion Week













Hello again!
Coming to you live from Halloween Fashion Week....

Its Day #3 and we're excited to bring you all another day on the runway....




Before we get to the day's agenda, lets take a look at some of the crowds out there....



Loads of street style going on with really great accessories....















Seems that Bags are a HUGE deal with a few really oversized bags

(maybe for all that Halloween Candy??)













and then....

for those who need just a little more bag but not a bigger bag, just ... more

Great Halloween colours ladies.....






and then there's always the unfortunate accessories.....  WTH!!

you could punch someone in face, push their eyes clear out the back of their head with those cherries....

and then there's always lock it up so tight you'll never get it open again, or even a chastity bag...

Its seems you ladies forgot your pants tho'... just sayin'





Oh Go Home!

and put some REAL shoes on....






although......, keep that one on the right, she could always clean the runway once we're finished....
Maybe I could do with a pair of those for around the house...






and then.....
there's always someone who just takes it too far....
That ship on top of the hat..... cause it just needed something.....














I'm not sure - but I think the face grate is to protect your eyes while flying about at night.

 Those pesky insects really get in your eyes sometimes....  okay, we'll let yours in.....








and then look!!

Someone ripping off our Halloween Dress pattern.....

Lady, it goes with the purple boots.... get it right!!





Okay enough horse..in' around... Today we have our first Halloween Accessory -





The flying, sweeping, stylish  BROOM....


Pattern measures 12" (31cm) and is on the intermediate level.












I've always wondered if witches houses were really clean...
they have help.............



Sorry about the LOOONG post but here's a picture of a potato....
Hope you've also had a bit of quirky fun...

Have a great Day!!
