Are you ready for another "fun" event? Have you seen the "Ghastlie" line of fabric by Alexander Henry? Perhaps you like it, but wonder what you could possibly do with it?
Although they do have a couple of designs in the line that look more suited for Halloween, I don't see the ones I've chosen as a Halloween fabric at all! I come from an art background, so I see these as almost a surrealist expression of stern, Victorian or Edwardian life. This is "illustration" in the style of Edward Gorey. It would be at home in a Tim Burton movie, an illustration for a poem by Poe, or even a page out of H. G. Wells. I don't see these as scary or spooky.
I hope you will join us for a blog hop of ideas of things to do with this line of fabric! I will be featured on November 3 and my ideas have NOTHING to do with Halloween! I think you'll see that this is something YOU could use! There will be prizes, both small and large, so be sure to join us!
Here is a poem by non other than Madame Samm at Sew I Quilt, the instigator of this hop!
Welcome GHASTLIE FANS
Behind the scenes we ( 54 ) Ghastlie obsessed
Stitchers have been rather busy, you could say.
I will be as surprised as all of YOU.
I cannot wait to see what my Sistahs
If you have this thing for Ghastlies
and they have tied you in a knot
and you wish you could get them out of your mind
than this may be a thought.
We heard her plea for a cure
Mdm Samm was pos/it/ively sure
that we could stitch the nights away
in hopes that we MAY----???
( all 54 of us)
The side effects are Ghastlie
there is no mistaking too.
if you don't run this very minute
YOU too will catch the FLU...
We suspected all along
this was her master plan
she did not want to be alone,
with all YOU Ghastlie FANS...
(I suspect there will be a CURE somewhere
in one of these blogs...)
