Quick Halloween, Quilt and Present update

Two naughty Lockets ready to party - unfortunately Dot was poorly :o(
But Fred isn't meant to have spooky eyes - I just couldn't edit them away this time :o/

The only time Locketland looks tidy - when the lights are out!


(Well 2 actually - one on Friday night and then our own delayed "party in the dark No.2" with bagel snakes, sausage hedgehog, monster chocolate mini rolls, witch's brew diet coke and special cupcakes with Anna's candycorn for decoration.)

Moving on to crafty stuff - here is the latest stage of the zig-zag quilt.

The top is nearly completed and now I need to decide what fabric to use for the backing - I'm leaning towards the turquoise spot (which isn't really as dark as it looks and matches the centre of the darker turquoise in the prints)

What do you think?

And before I go I will leave you with a peek at the gorgeous PIF present I received from Monda

so come back next time to see what was in it!

Happy November!

You tease! I love that twill tape.

And your celebrations look fab - hope Dot wasn't too sad about missing out.

I hope Dot's feeling better now, and that she didn't entirely miss out on that fab looking party.

I take it you're waiting till tomorrow to open the parcel too?

Ooooh scary Lockets! Looks like you had a great Halloween! LOVE that quilt -- and I could go either way with the back -- just depends on the mood -- they both look great!

Great party food, cute costumes, and a spectacular surprise package - I can't wait to see what's inside. :>}

Your Halloween #2 tea looks fab! Now I understand all the excited squealing when you were on the phone - looks like a perfect scary party.
I hope Dot's feeling much better :)

great picture of the lockets - poor Dot for missing out on the action - hope she's feeling better. The party sounds perfect - yummy food! The quilt is looking fab and I think your leanings in a turquoise direction are spot on - looking forward to seeing it finished and what was underneath the pretty packaging.

We had a party in the dark too. Well, sort of. There was a power cut just as we were about to have tea.

Love the zig zag quilt - and what gorgeous fabrics.

Maura said...

I love the pic with the lights out!

And, I vote for the turquoise fabric. It feels more "harmonious" than the red.

Good to see you yesterday :)
