Wicked Blog Hop
It is time for another blog hop, and since this one is the "Wicked" blog hop I decided to do something off the wall for me.
I had to laugh about this when I started thinking back to when I was the age of my son. I was 13 years old and did a lot of babysitting. I decided one night to watch the Exorcist. By the time that movie was over I was petrified and scared to death. The people I was babysitting for took me home and I couldn't run fast enough to get in the house. I had horrible nightmares for the weeks to follow and was terrified when it was time to go to bed. I finally had to tell my mom that I had watched the movie and that I was so sorry I did. I don't do scary anymore for Halloween after that, so my wicked is the use of color.
The colors are so bright they actually don't show up right. The blue is more of a purple. I also just went through my stash and chose from what I had, not paying attention to how much I had. That meant there were some changes made where fabrics were used because I didn't have enough of one or the other. This pattern was the Mystery Monday quilt from This and That Patterns. I did mine differently using dark fabric for the background (another huge step for me).
A huge thank you to Madame Samm and Wendy for organizing this hop, and here are today's participants.
Happy Stitching and Hopping!! --Kristen
