Hello Dear Friends...

I apologize that I am a little late in announcing the winners of my 
"Happy H"OWL"o-ween" panel drawing...
What a busy time, getting ready for Market and all!
(Did I mention we also have a wedding, bridal shower and college
graduation in the next month?)

So to try to make amends, I am have chosen two winners 
(with the help of random.org)
instead of one!

Congratulations to Joyce who commented on May 7th
Deb who commented on May 4th.
You will both receive the above panel.
Thank you all so much for visiting my blog and your kind comments.
They truly mean a lot to me!

Joyce and Deb, please email me with your addresses, so that I
can send your panels right out.

Thanks again everyone!
Happy Spring and Happy (early)

Happy H"OWL" o-ween in May!

Hello Dear Friends!

Hope that your spring is off to a wonderful start.  Ours has been a little odd in terms of weather....and as if to prove it, my poppies are blooming!!!

I'm not sure, but I think that they usually don't bloom until later in the summer.

 Just when this beautiful orange and black flower arrived
at our home, 
a fun orange and black (and green, purple, yellow and red) Halloween fabric group is arriving
in fabric stores across the country!!

I'm so excited to introduce my new Halloween group with Moda fabrics!  It is filled with friendly owls and spiders, candy corn and cobwebs. Sure to make you get in the Halloween mood...even in the spring!

The panel in the group is divided into two images....
Happy Halloween Owls

Pumpkin Patch Friends

One of my favorite coordinates is the collection of
Halloween words!

eek! fright, spooky, scary, trick or treat, haunt, CREEPY words.....

There are also plenty of owls and spider webs! 

I had such a good time designing this group!
Hope that you have fun creating with it!

Leave a comment by May 10th and one winner will be chosen to win a  BRAND NEW panel (includes both images.)

Happy H"OWL"o-ween,
a little early (just like my poppies),
but still frightfully fun!
