I'm crossing my fingers I can get a good in-action photo of this little one begging for candy this weekend. They just won't stop wiggling!!
Have a safe and fun Halloween weekend! I'm working on a really easy shirt refashion- stay tuned!

I added a yarn wreath, with little felt halloween things- bat, spiderweb, and weird ghost- on the embellishments.

I hit the stash for this quilt, pulling everything pink and green. It turned out really cute, and simple too. I did a lot of chain stitching which made it go really fast.
The binding is just solid pink Kona cotton. I quilted a really loose stipple so it would be softer. I am going to pre-wash this because my baby grabbed it with food all over her hands. Sorry, quilt receiver! I am a mother!
This baby has already arrived, so today my goal is to wash, dry, package and mail this beauty. And all the other things waiting to be mailed off. I hate going to the post office with my kids, so I put it off as long as humanly possible. You know?

Mike helped me out by taking pictures while I got ready for the baby shower. He's so great- he did it without me even asking. He just knows how I roll.
Everything but the binding is Verna by Kate Spain for Moda. The binding is from Wild Rose by Marti Michell for Maywood Studio. It matched perfectly, and it was 50% off :) I used THIS pattern by Vanessa of V&Co. I love it!

It may look childish, but trust me- it's a fun game. My name is Mike and I'm Melanie's husband. My friends on Battlefield Heroes call me "MBronx," and my enemies aren't alive to give me a name. Needless to say, I invoke fear.
It's practically real-life experience. For all you husbands out there...give it a shot!

Year? Tweedle Dee and Tweedle Dum, in totally different outfits. My sister and I had a good time doing this with thrifted overalls that were size Gigantic on us.

My spiderweb runner now sits on the dresser in our family room... our ghetto tv got sold at the garage sale, so it was needing some holiday get-up. :) I think I prefer it all here instead of the table!

But first, garage sale. Love shopping them, hate having them.
