Come Boogie with me!

Thanks to Vickie and Madame Samm for bringing us another great blog hop! Thanks to our sponsors : RED ROOSTER FABRICS, Radical Rooster and Bird Brain Designs.
I've had a thing for chickens, roosters and turkeys for quite a while. For this hop I decided to make a couple of mug rugs. It was my first time trying echo quilting. I like it and I hope as I do it more I get better at it.

Happy Thanksgiving to all !

What a Wicked Good Time!

I hope you have been enjoying the Wicked Blog Hop! It's been  fun seeing all the creativity! Today is my turn to show what I have made, but first I want to thank Madame Samm and Wendy for all they do for us. Thanks to our sponsors (Wyndham Fabrics, Reliable IRON, and Bird Brain Designs ) for their generosity!
My first project was a couple of zip pouches, a Monster and Black Cat.

My next project was a miniquilt for my Ackfeld hanger in my dining room.
A haunted house complete with bats and spiders and spider webs.

It is on the hanger, but due to uncooperative weather and unWicked background,
I add a starry night draped in the hanger.
Since I finished my planned projects earlier than expected, I decided to make a little Mummy zip pouch to go with my Monster and Black Cat.

Be sure to visit the other Wicked creators today:

Hexi Blog Hop....More fun than I thought...

Ok, I've never made a hexi before. In fact the only hexis I've seen in person were little English paper piecing ones my sister was hand sewing. She had a bunch of plastic sandwich bags full of them.  (Did not look like fun to me, so despite my sister's enthusiasm for those tiny hexis I had no intention of trying them).  Along comes the Hexi Blog Hop and again I didn't think I would try it, but there were OLISO iron giveaways and Quiltscapes blog had just posted a terrific Hexi hot pad. I needed a new iron so badly that I signed up. Unfortunately I didn't win a iron, but I did have fun making a couple hexi projects.  My first project was (surprise) a Hexi hot pad :
 I made it to go with some placemats and a table runner (pattern called Table for Four) 
and a fabric bowl as a gift for my niece.
 I love the front fabrics, but the back fabric is fun, too.
My second project was a take off of the hexi hot pad. I made the five hexis without
the insulbrite and sewed them together before finishing the blanket stitch on the curves.
Some close ups of the cute fabrics

Thanks for visiting and be sure to visit the other creative Hexi creators today:

I apologize that when I signed up for the hop, I didn't realize we would be on vacation with very limited, if any, internet service. I hope I will be able to read the blogs from my phone, but might not be able to comment. I will not be replying to comments left on my blog post, but I want you to know I truly enjoy receiving all your comments. I will be having a giveaway of some fabric (fabric not chosen yet, maybe I will pick something up on vacation). Open to all followers who leave comments. I will chose a winner Sept 9th..

Sorry everyone! This was supposed to post Monday at midnight. Don't know why it didn't. Just noticed it as I was preparing my post for Sunday night. I sure hope it works Sunday night because I will be out of state on vacation and internet is iffy where I will be staying.  Keeping my fingers crossed......
Now enjoy the hop, there are some amazing projects out there!!
