I’m supposed to be piecing some final projects for Market. My husband thinks thats what I am doing on this beautiful October Saturday. In fact he took all the kiddos to his parents house for the afternoon so that I could do it more efficiently. And what am I doing… I’m sitting here looking at the pile of blocks with no energy left to assemble them… How pathetic is that? My standard Murder She Wrote marathon is on in the background and these blocks are staring at me…daring me to do something productive…

So I thought I’d finally post again instead. Unfortunately, the pictues from PIQF are on the other computer which would require that I actually get up and move to another room. Even that seems like too much work right now.
So instead here are some of my favorite vintage Halloween images that a friend emailed over the other day. One of these days, these images will make it into a design, but not this year.

    It was fun seeing you at PIQF. I love your new patterns and can’t wait for your new issue of Fresh Vintage to come out. Have fun in Houston. Hope to see you sometime soon………..

    As “The Queen of the Procrastinators” I welcome you with open arms to my “Kingdom of Piddling Around”. (I just finished a big , long-winded post on my blog of how I spent the day doing everything I wasn’t supposed to be doing and nothing of what I should have done!) Oh well —

    Anyhow, can’t wait to see all your new designs and the new issue of Fresh Vintage !!

    I know what you mean, completely. Funny how we’re all watching the same little collection of shows! See you later in the coming week!

    Take a break, you deserve a little refresher after PIQF, not to mention all of the other stuff you accomplish. Love the vintage images, nice meeting you at PIQF.

    Oh golly gosh..I would be first to line up and volunteer to help. Unfortunatley-you have described my exact feeling as of late. In fact, Dustin escorted the kiddos to the library today so I could get stuff done and I sat in front of the computer too with the hopes of writing a post, but alas-that didn’t happen either! I fought with the airlines for 2 hours instead as they had us traveling to Washington instead of Texas. So there, I have updated on your blog instead of mine and am now good until after market. … right..?

    Procrastination I think is the story of my life. Always have good intentions what I am going to do that day, there is always a million reason I don’t. Then I stay up to all hours trying to get done what I should of when I had the time. Your halloween images are really fun.

    P.S. Can’t wait to see you and your wonderful fabric at Market.

    I wish I was going to be at market so I could see what you have been up to! You’ll have to post pictures so we can oooh and aaah over them after you get back. Also, thanks for the email and the update on Fresh Vintage. It is always so fun to hear from you! I’ll keep an eye out for it later next month. As far as the procrastination, I agree with Mark Twain- Never put off until tomorrow what you can do the day after tomorrow! 😉 GOOD LUCK!

    You are a delight! I loved seeing you at PIQF and your booth was absolutely the BEST one there! You’ve created quite a stir with your new patterns and glimpses of your new fabric. How in the heck do you get it all in one booth? I bet your booth at market will be all the rage. I’m a fan and can’t wait to see what you come up with next. Also, love the vintage Halloween images…ahhhhhhhhh!!

    It certainly was a beautiful weekend here in the Bay Area. I could have done yard work but instead worked on a gorgeous quilt using your Folklorique line. Since I didn’t win that jelly roll, I bought my own and bunches of the fabric. I discovered the greatest quilt shop in San Carlos that carries all of your lines. Talk about a “heavenly weekend”.
