Don't let the difficulties of the present moments overshadow the reality of God's promises. God's promises still stand. And God's promises are stronger than our failures.

Witches Don't Scare Me!

I did the hand embroidery on this piece a couple of years ago so you know what that means - it hit the UFO pile and lived there a while.  Last night it became UFO #9 to be finished off my list of 30.
The colors didn't come out just right in this picture...that plaid is a little more orange and the bright piece is more orange too though it's pretty neon.  :)  I love the way it adds some pop to the piece.   I stippled around the embroidery, outlined the stars, drew witch's brooms in the "neon" blocks and drew loops in the borders.  It's a long time until Halloween, but I'm ready!

Oooo, I love your work!!! You should be sainted for getting so much done, and we aren't even through March yet. You'll be done with your 30 before you know it!

I'm beginning to get a little ashamed. Guess I'll need to get to my UFO's, too!

Very sweet!! It sure feels good to get things checked off, doesn't it?

Linda said...

Oh, I'm so happy for you, and somewhat jealous, that you're getting so much done. I WILL get to my sewing machine for some personal stuff... soon!

This is fabulous! Marlene, I have a UFO that has been in the works for a few years now. I MUST FINISH it before school gets out. It's a rag quilt for Bethany. I made Ben's before he was born. You have my permission to hold me accountable! I think I'm just afraid to start sewing.
