Guess Who's Back???

uh oh - I did something bad today (and yesterday - which is why I did it again today.....) I went on the computer and looked - I can't believe it, it's been so long..... at blogs. Yes, yes I did. I went and checked out some 'new to me bloggers' and - You won't believe what happened!!!

I found the project that got me into my sewing room!!! It's a Halloween project and I love Hallowen projects!! And this one is a very quick and easy one (which means - BRENDA GET IT DONE!!!!!!!) and I have already been working on it!!!
I will show you something:

It still likes me!!! And it still works!!
All my play things were more than ready to come and play with me when I finally entered the 'no zone' area today!!!
I felt so loved!!
And I had such a good time!!!
Yes, even though I got my big machine fixed I have not used it yet (how can you, when as soon as you get it home - you go on a 'no sewing frame of mind'???)
But I am in my room again, and lovin' it!!!
Do I feel bad for not doing more? No. I don't. I had other things to keep me company. I've started to read again. Which I do not let myself do enough of. Factual book, yes, but fiction??? No. I don't read 'for fun' very often. But I have been!!! I, the kid in me, the one who loves to go places, have adventures and some excitment, has been hidden away for to long. She is showing herself though!!!

This spring, a friend wanted hubby and me to stop at an RV place so he could look at trailers. Well, for the first time ever - I went into a beautiful motor home (I love motor homes!!!) and actually sat in the drivers seat........ Now, I want it!!! And I have been haveing fantasy's about where me and the motor home would go - or should I say, where wouldn't we go???!!
Anyways back to todays project!!!

This is where I went through a scraps pile to look for suitable fabrics for my new project!!

I Found alot of things that will work, and I am glad!! I want it to be fun, and colourful - But, I also want it to look good when it's done!! Some of my fabrics will not be used, but it was nice to look throught them.....

My spiders are going to be black, but black prints!! Each one is different!! I have not decided on the eyes yet - that will be fun!! And I ended up piecing the corners!! Same fabric, but pieces where smaller than needed so..... Waste not want not!! And they dont' have to be 'perfect'!! It's HALLOWEEN for crying out loud!! I want 'fun' not serious!!!

And here are the pieced corners:

And I like how they look. All kinda crazy and such!!

And I really need to lean how to get this to work for me!! When I previewed this post, it was awful, but being here I can't get the pieces to fit together right, or the cursor to be where I want!! Guess I need to blog more - get my skill up. but here is the last picture:

So, along with my long neglected but not forgotten project, Piece & Goodwill, (I was actually working on it as 'leader and enders' as I pieced my corner blocks together!! yeah me!!!) this is the center for my Trick or Treat project!!! And 2 - 2.5" blks to start my sides and top!! Yup, I am going to have fun!! And thanks for being here to share my joy!! I am off for dinner and some House and Lie To Me, them - cutting I guess!!! (my TV has been taken from my sewing room!! didn't miss it till today!!! Wounder why??) lol!! Bye!!
