I'm getting the hang of these :)

Jack-o-lantern and ghosty finger puppets :)

Each set I make gets easier and easier - I didn't think my cranky hands would stand up to the fiddly work on them, but so far so good :)  Bonus - they're fun to make!  These ones got maiLLed today :)  I even bought pink felt because I want to live in a world where a little girl can have a pink ghost and/or jack-o-lantern :D

Mailing these tomorrow :D

Jack-o-lantern and ghosty finger puppets :)
The finger puppet obsession continues - here are a couple of sets of Halloween puppets that will be mailed tomorrow for a small relative and his daycare buddy :)  It's night and I took the picture inside, so sorry about the quality ... although truth be told, my photography skills leave a lot to be desired at the best of times, lol.  Tutorial here :)

Another toddler quilt finish - colour me happy :)

Here are a few October finishes - I've been mainly working on these toddler quilts, and haven't done much of anything else!  #6 is now underway and should be done by the end of the month - then I can concentrate on non-quilt projects :D

QAYG D9P quilt using Brrr! line - measures 47" x 47" - this is a Christmas gift :)

Quilt back :)

Trick or treat bag and Halloween book - for g-nephew Lleyton :)

Turkey finger puppets - set 2 - a gift for Lleyton (tutorial here) :)

I made this zipper pouch for my SIL to hold her camera USB sticks.  Note the camera fabric and ...

... and the camera zipper pull, lol!
We went home (Rideau Ferry and Osgoode, Ontario) for Thanksgiving last weekend to visit my family :)  I have to unload the photos from my camera, and get some photos from my SIL - we had a great visit, and even got in a quicky run to Joanns in Ogdensburg, New York :D  I picked up a couple of king sized quilt batts so my love affair with QAYG quilts will continue - for the time being, at least!  I started cutting out the squares for a froggy version - my sister gave me the fabrics last year, and now that they've aged properly, I can start chopping :D

One of my turkeys appears drunk :D

Tutorial from Frog Prince Paperie :)
Turkey finger puppets!!  Aren't these the most adorable turkeys ever?  These 2 got mailed today to a wee relative - I hope they make it in time for Thanksgiving next weekend :D  More T-giving ones are planned, and then - maybe some Halloween ones!  These ones measure about 4" tall and 4" wide at the widest part :)

Brrr! and Booo! with a side of drool and dribble :D

53" x 53" Disappearing 9 Patch quilt, done in quilt as you go method (D9P QAYG) - this is a Christmas gift - the fabrics are from the Brrr! line by Laurie Wisbrun :)

Close-up of the fabrics in this quilt :)

Here's the back of the above quilt - it's hanging upside down, as I just noticed, LOL.

Another Christmas gift D9P QAYG quilt (46" x 46"), using the other colourway of the Brrr! line :)

Close-up of the fabrics and quilting

The back of the quilt -- I was using up scraps for the back, so 2 of the blocks are patchworked from leftovers :D  The lime green (backing blocks and cover strips) is from Joanns.
5 boy bibs using up scraps - the tutorial for the monster bibs is here :)

One last Halloween trick or treat bag - this one measures 14"w x 13.5" t x 3.5" d.  This one isn't from a specific tutorial.
