Choices Choices....

Today has been all about choices. 

First choice of the day - do I send the little peeps to school or not? Both had been coughing all night and awoke with rip roaring temperatures. Decision = No.

The second lot of choices were 'Master M's'. He's been harrassing me since the day this FQ bundle arrived from Seamstar.

I fancied making him some Halloween bunting as he just loves all things spooky but no, what did he want. A ghost. A blinking ghost. The child is crackers about softies. I should have known.

So some sketching later from moi and some serious decision making from little fella, we came up with this::

A very cute ghost from our own pattern, fabric and buttons chosen by the man himself, cut and stiched by me! He even stuffed it himself. God love him.

Here he is proudly showing off his ghost, though he couldn't quite muster a smile and fell asleep on the sofa, ghost in arms shortly after this photo was taken.
Whilst I had the Halloween fabric out I cut some more of it up as I am going to use it to make a little something for the Halloween Swap I'm partaking in, more of that later though as I don't want to spoil the surprise for my partner!!

This evening I've also cut up this little lot::

There is 11oz of fabric strips to be sent to my partner for the Scrappy {Strips} Swap! I's an off shoot of the Quilt-As-You-Go Round 2 that Heather is hosting, it's a really great idea as you get lots more fabrics for your scrappy QAYG quilt. Yay! I've found a few more bits that I'm going to add in too and then off it will go tomorrow.

Finally here are my blocks for September Fresh Modern Bee 2, for Jessica::

Hope she likes them!


  1. The ghost is absolutely gorgeous, I'm sorry but I'm going to have to shamelessly copy it for my boys! I love the fact that amidst all the testosterone little boys still like their teddies (or ghosts)! Jane x

  2. I can't wait to see what you've made from that gorgeous halloween fabric - you're a tease!xx

  3. Loving all you fabric choices, as usual, and that ghost is super cute!

    I hope the kids are better soon, fingers crossed for a good nights sleep and no temperatures tomorrow. Bx

  4. Neat Halloween fabric - cute ghost to go with a cute kid! Blessings, Peg

  5. Hi Justine, I am your swap partner for the christmas deccie swap - looking forward to it! xx

  6. I loved the ghost! I will try to make one for my eight-weeks-old daughter with something that makes noise inside. What a great idea you gave me! I just bought a sewing machine and am starting to learn some sewing. I'm in love with sewing although I don't find too much time.... Great blog!


Well hello and thanks so much for commenting! It's lovely to hear from you, Justine xx
