Bit of a Ghastlie weekend!

OK So it wasn't THAT bad!

Firstly I have this Ghastlie cold - yuk!

which in turn leads to Ghastlie procrastination! 


Hmm, who knew this could happen!

I did have a little play with these Ghastlie fabrics ....

and moved onto working on the Modern Christmas Table Runner Swap for my partner ...


do you know how Ghastlie it is to make 126 Half Square Triangles!

and then I moved onto the latest round to the Brit Quilt Swap - Pillow Fight!

I have a good idea for my partner but needed to try a little experiment with some bondaweb (not my normal fusing medium)


so I can then convert it into this ....


trust me, my compass work was Ghastlie!

But the Ghastliest thing about this weekend was the treatment of my credit card, which is now hiding in terror!


Mmmm, Tanya Whelan ...


Amy Butler, Kitty Yoshida and some Erin McMorris ...


oh and a little more Amy Butler for good measure ...


and just a little autumn inspiration for a commission quilt in the making.

No wonder I had a Ghastlie weekend!  There may be a few more Ghastlie moments to come!

Happy Quilting!

Oh my, I would like to have had a Ghastlie weekend (well, except for the cold)! Although, I think I would be in Ghastlie trouble with my husband if I brought home all that lovely fabric! ;)

Sarah said...

Oh wow Trudi! Your poor poor credit card :-) Awesome shop! Cant wait to see what you've done with Ghastlies...

Trudi, I think your credit card needs to know when somethng is 'medicinal' or 'therapy'. I have some of that Ghastlie fabric and I'm not sure what to do with it, I just HAD to have it. I can't wait to see what you did. Hope your cold gets better.

Gosh what a haul! I'm liking the look of your pillow fight piece, I shall be watching it with interest. I decided to pass on the swap at the last moment but I'm very excited to see what everyone creates.
