Yes, I am crazy!

It's official - I've lost my mind! I found Jane's blog sometime in June I think and her Halloween Swap had already started. I was SO disappointed because I love Halloween and would definitely have signed up for her swap. So this weekend when two spots became available due to some missing participants I begged Jane to let me in signed up. The blocks are due tomorrow! Obviously they will not be done by then but I told Jane I would do everything I could to get them to her by the end of the week. I hurried to the LQS on Saturday and purchased the fabric I needed and started sewing. Despite 2 parties to attend this weekend I made some good progress - here is my owl block:

Only 11 more of him to do! I also need to do twelve 12 1/2 inch 9 patch blocks for the swap - those are done already - I did them first on Saturday. The pieces for the other owls are fused and cut out - ready to be assembled and stitched.

***A note to other members of Jane's Halloween swap - I would love to do some private swaps for additional blocks if anyone is interested! Just leave me a comment or email me!

Meanwhile in other quilty news, I also managed to finish quilting my mini quilt for the doll quilt swap and attach the binding. Just need to hand sew the other side of the binding and attach a label and I can get that baby in the mail.

Have a pieceful day!

Thank you so much for stepping in and filling in on the Halloween swap. Your owls are so cute.
I will be receiving one for my quilt(group 1, bats), but I am willing to trade you one of my witch shoes & stockings (group 4)from my mom's quilt if you are interested. (I am making one for her as a Halloween surprise!)
