My Day ~ Wicked Blog Hop... Day 1 of 8


Welcome to the Wicked Blog Hop...

Many thanks to Wendy ~ why-knot-kwilt
for being our hostess, and to 
our cheerleader-in-residence,
Monday, October 22nd













Fletcher and Rodney
thought someone left them some treats... 
~Wicked Blog Hop ~

The treats certainly looked tasty but...
little did they know they were
being watched!
~Fletcher and Rodney~

I am glad I only made one block
with the "eye" fabric in the center.
It didn't turn out quite as I hoped but
I do like the "spider-web" block
so I may make some more of those.
I think fall or Christmas fabrics
would be pretty.


Just too many eyes, I think!
I may have to applique some spiders over them.


Thanks for stopping by...
The hop continues through October 31st.

Happy Hopping...
Karen
