Ghastlie Day Five!

It was a perfectly Ghastlie night here on the lake....rainy and cold and shivery.  But this morning the sun is shining and I'm ready to sit down and visit with a few Ghastlie friends!  That means I should grab my IPad and read a few Ghastlie blogs to see what they're are up to today.  Now where could it be...I know I put it somewhere here...oh there!  In my Ghastlie IPad purse!


It's day 5 of the Ghastlie Blog Hop so let's take a look at Sew I Quilt and see if Madame Samm's listed who's posting today.  Oh yes, there's the list...first up is 

Wait...uh oh...who's that one in the middle there?  It's me!  I'm supposed to be posting on this Ghastlie day!

Okay, I can do it.  But first I need a cup of coffee and a muffin.  I'll eat my muffin and drink my coffee and then I'll write that post.  I better grab my Ghastlie hot pad so I don't burn my fingers.
Is that Albert Ghastlie?  Oh dear, I'm not sure.  No one's introduced me you see.  But let's get closer...maybe you'll recognize him.


Well whichever Ghastlie he is he'll save my poor fingers from getting burned when I take my muffins out of the oven.  And the coffee is ready so let's get out the mug rug and sit on the deck for a few minutes.  I think I'll read everyone's Ghastlie posts and then I'll write mine.  

 Ahhh now this one I recognize...Uncle Rufus Ghastlie!  He pretends to be a vampire but the gossip is that he's really an accountant, or a computer programmer maybe.  I saw him once on a street corner in New York City.  He's really quite a handsome guy, don't you think?

But I do wish someone would tell him that capes are, well, a bit passe.  

I really can't keep reading blogs...it seems I get started and hours pass before I know it.  Does that happen to you?  I read and comment, and read and comment, and forget what I should have been doing.  I better grab my Ghastlie purse and head for the grocery store.


Oh sew easy this was to make!  A Ghastlie friend told me the secret - a canvas bag bought at the local craft store, a few Ghastlie ruffles and a bit of ribbon!  Aunt Gertrude is peeking out to see where I'm going!  But before I leave I better iron these jeans I want to wear.  That's not going to take long if I use my wonderful lavender scented starch.
Hmmm, I wonder what the Ghastlie girls are whispering about.  And where my iron is.  Those girls are so bad, I guess they've hidden my iron.  But what's this strange looking thing here?
 Oh, I remember!  I took my iron to guilt guild yesterday and it's still in it's caddy.
 Isn't this fun?  It's all wrapped up safe and sound so I can carry it back and forth.  And it's insulated in the bottom so it won't burn me if I forget and put it in there when it's hot!
Now I'm all ready to go, jeans ironed, purse in hand.  But I seem to be forgetting something.  I wonder what it could be?  Wasn't I supposed to be doing something?  Oops, a post!   I was supposed to write a post!  I'll go do that right now!  And I better not forget to do a giveaway.  Everyone loves a giveaway.  Wonder what I should give....I know!  A Ghastlie mug rug and a yard of Ghastlie fabric.  That will make it a Ghastlie gift!

If you'd like to win the mug rug and the fabric too,
just let me hear a comment from you.
I'd love it if you were a follower because that's super sweet,
but I know you can't follow everyone you meet.

Blessings, Marlene

Truly a wonderful post to highlight all the lovely, ghastlie things you have made! I have most of your items (although not in Ghastlie), but now I really can use one of those pretty starch bottle covers with the ruffle idea from the purse. So enjoyed the visit.

VickiT said...

Great stuff you've made. LOVE the spray bottle cover. I'm sure that can't be too hard to make yet I still haven't taken the time. (you know - time .......the thing you had much more of when you worked outside the home but can't seem to find now that you're not working any longer? yea THAT LOL (yes, I wandered back a bit and was reading and saw your post about what you DO all day))
Anyway, that ruffled purse/tote is adorable and sounds like it is super easy and quick to make by the comments you've made about it. Nice. LOVE the iron cover. Is that your own or did you buy that pattern? I know of one site that has a pattern like that but wondered if there were others. Mug rug? Yard of this awesome fabric? OH YES PLEASE? I would be thrilled to win some of this fabric which I haven't been able to buy. And with all the mug rug tutorials around in blogland, I still haven't made one for my own desk yet. I'd love that also.

THANK YOU for not requiring we follow because yes, you are so correct you just can't follow everyone you meet. I keep wondering if Google Friend Connect has a limit to the number you can follow. LOL Some day I feel like I'm going to get a warning that I'm following too many people. haha
BUT, I love the way you wrote this post and the others I read before posting here so I'm going to stalk ...errrr ummmmmmmmm follow you now. :)

chicken mommy said...

Oh my it was a truly Ghastlie post that I enjoy but feel like I am coming down the flu that is going around on all the blogs. Beginning to see the cure is only in the making.

Hi Marlene, Cute things you've made!! I met you last year at the UMCOR Depot and told you I had looked at your blog. I was part of the Georgia group. We came again to depot in May. Keep making cute things.

I'm your newest follower. Oh how I would love to stitch by a lake. Lucky you. Your projects are all wonderful. I laughed when you said you took your iron to "guilt" guild. Was that a typo? It's fitting, anyway. You can count me in for your drawing; would love some Ghastlie fabric and a mug rug! Thanks so much.

Wonderful projects Marlene! I love the IPAD holder you made. I was thinking of making one of those for my Nook, but I thought of it too late.

Well done Sistah!
