I have been working on a sample quilt using my Halloweensy Spider pattern.(I was crunched for time and just hung it from my shelves in the sewing room - not a particularly attractive way to display a quilt, but at least you can see it!) The spider web in the center is beaded with tiny mirrored beads. The fabric has touches of the pink throughout, although you don't see much in the photo.

|I added a fly in the upper left hand corner. She is caught in a quilted spider web and like in the old movie, "The Fly", she is crying, "Help me! Help me!" (I just couldn't resist.) Her face is also taken from the fabric.|
Now I'm anxious to get in there and work on a new design!
Today is the first day of the Wantabe Quilter contest. Go to Stash Manicure and leave comments to be entered. If you are a "wantabe" quilter, you don't have much in the way of supplies and are not a seasoned quilter, you will comment on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday of each week. Each of those days is a new prize and a new chance to win! When you leave your comment, be sure to say "Linda of Buzzing and Bumbling sent me" and I will have a chance to win if you win. If you are an experienced quilter, you will do the same thing, except on Tuesday and Thursday of each week. Prizes will be all types of things from thread or fabric to sewing machines!If you haven't signed up with a blog sponsor, send me an email with your name, email address, and phone number (which will be kept private) and I will see that you are signed up!
