WiP Wednesday - 17-10-2007 (Haunted Houses) and Memes/Tags


Weekly round up - what's on the wall this week?

The first photo was taken on the 14th and the second one yesterday. The only trouble is that the lovely dark green has come out turquoisey!

The words are going to continue as far round the quilt as they will go "Haunted houses. Enter at your peril." I am fiddling about deciding where to put the houses and tend to favour "scream" on the left which will continue using the words as the border. The O's in "Boo"11.gif got changed around and I like the big o last, like BoO! They are going to have wobbly eyes in them.

I mucking about with fabrics and have got material drapped 56.gif over the kitchen chairs. DH is not impressed!

These are the words I'm going to use - Alex and I are having fun writing them down as we think of them and, as you can see, the flies have joined in!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Some of them are going to be cut and some sewn. It really depends on how much space there is. Alex is looking forward to drawing cobwebs. Talking of which must get some silver embroidery floss.


There are tags and memes being thrown at me from all directions. Nicolette has tagged me to reveal 7 things about me, 6 facts and habits about me, and has given me a You Make Me Smile Award. Lovely Lily has tagged me for the What's in a Name meme.


I'm going to combine the 3 meme's tomorrow and I promise promise promise that I won't be tagging anyone else. The meme stops here :-)

You can’t stop a meme... (LOL)! I love how your quilt is going to be and I think the photo on the right is a bit more spectacular because it is not the way you should expect the composition, that makes it more attractive! But then, you can only see how it looks after all the parts are ready! It’s going to be wonderful anyhow anyway! SCREECH BANG!

Love how your letters are coming together. What a fun project :)

Another phrase that gets tossed about often is:
Abandon hope, all ye who enter here.

I hope hope hope your parcel arrives in time!

Sue in western WA said...

LOL ~ I had you on my list for the same meme (7 True Things)! If you do it you can knock off two tags with one meme!

Your Haunted Houses quilt is going to be very fun.

Love, love, love your Halloween quilt -- it looks like it's a ton of fun to work on!

When you put an animated gif at the top of a blog post, it screws with some feed readers (notably Google Reader) and someone trying to read your post cannot scroll to see the rest of the message, because each time the animation changes, it takes you back to the top. Just something to ask yourself--do you want readers to see the animated gif or your words and photos?
