Black Cat Crossing Hop

Wicked Wendy has the Schedule HERE
Hello and welcome to My Stop
of the Wicked
Black Cat Crossing Hop

I choose to pick out three different patterned
fabrics from the adorable Maywood Studio's
Black Cat Crossing.
I worked up a table runner
with them.
I also added a little
chalkboard fabric in the center.
The kids enjoy writing fun notes.
I am not really the scary
Halloween type, so
this is the cutest tombstone
that I could come up with. 
Can you tell that I am enjoying the
chalkboard fabric. 

Go check out what the
other Ghouls and Goblins
created for the hop.

A Little Bit of Everything

I have been busily putting my
sewing space all together.
It is going to be a work in
progress to find all
the little things that speak to me.
(It will probably take years)
I have always wanted a space that
Says "Me". 
Here is a little chunk
of what I have so far.

I have loved seeing the cute antique ladders
that everyone has sporting their quilts.
Well, this ladder has a lot of
meaning. It is the kids bunk-bed ladder.
It was just sitting around,
collecting dust in the shed,
when I had the idea to use it.
We drilled holes in the front of the ladder
at the top to attach it into a stud.
They are counter sunk holes.
After screwing it to the wall,
I used wooden button to cover
the screw heads. 
I was lucky enough to hit
a stud with both sides.
It is probably a good thing,
since a certain someone
thinks it is a great ladder up the wall to
My husband refinished this
cute little nightstand
for me. 
I like to store my cross-stitch supplies
in there and it
keeps me from tripping on
the ladder.
(Can you tell, I probably did it more than once)
I love the black hardware against the
willow stain.   
Here is the picture of part of the
set before he refinished it.
I actually picked it up for nothing.
(Got to love that)
We spent next to
nothing refinishing it.
Just the sandpaper, stain,
poly, and paint for the pulls.
He has two of the three pieces
redone, but I'll
show you the other a bit later.
And all those lovely tomatoes,
I again was working on.
This time with a little
 Basil-Garlic Tomato Sauce.
You can find the recipe Here.
It smelled absolutely yummy.
I am hoping it tastes just as
I have also been doing a bit
of sewing for the Black Cat Crossing Hop
