Are you busy?

Whew, this is has been a very busy work week. I am happy but tired! How busy have you been this week?

I have been working hard on a new wall hanging called Dresden Halloween Town! I was getting some sewing practice done making some Halloween fabric using my Accuquilt cutter to save time – it’s a small Dresden plate, but as I was looking at the pieces, I thought it kind of looks like the shape of a house – and a haunted house too! Without sewing the edges into points, I could add an applique roof and stitch some doors and windows. Oh and of course I had to add a full moon, ghosts, bats, creepy eyes and a spider web between the houses. Once I got started it was impossible to stop! SEW much fun. I dropped my work on any other project (yes, I am behind a bit) to finalize the design, stitch the design, fix any boo boos, put all the sizes together and edit a video. That’s why I was so busy!!!

I did a stitch out of the largest size and I had to make a few tiny changes to make sure that everything matched up properly when sewn together. I missed a few key points, but I got them fixed.

As I was stitching out the last block, I decided that I should make a step by step video on how I did the applique and stitching and released the video at the same time as the design, so it is there for you to watch and stitch!

I think you will enjoy this applique design at any size, and I can’t wait to see the fabric and threads that you use! I think you will really enjoy the old traditional Dresden shape made modern for Halloween. Now we need a Gnome Home one and maybe a Christmas one with Santa and the Reindeer silhouette around the sky circle. Oh, now I am going to be busy again!!! Happy Stitching!
