Wicked Blog Hop

Welcome to my post in the Wicked Blog Hop. I'm so sorry to be posting late. Unfortunately, I am one of those affected by Hurricane Sandy. We are fortunate that the power we lost yesterday came back on. Millions of others in my state (New Jersey) are still without power including two of my adult sons who both live in the same town about 12 miles from here.

There are a number of others posting today and I hope you will visit their blogs to see what they have come up with. I plan to do the same this evening. To make it easy, here is a list of today's posters.


Tingling Tuesday,
October 30th
 
Thanks to Wendy and Madame Samm for their efforts in organizing this blog hop.

Next up is my block-
  I think it's a pretty scary looking spider. No, it's not the 10" or12" it was supposed to be. Originally I was going to add background around the spider and then embroider on a spider web, but I decided I really like it the way it is. I got the design from the Paper Panache website. I love her patterns. They aren't the easiest, but they are wonderful.

I'm so glad you are safe and with power again. Halloween is better celebrated fun scary not storm scary. And your block is definitely fun scary!

LJ said...

What a wicked (Can I say "ugly, creepy" spider?) I'd say that's a sure sign that your block is a success - it's weirding me out!!!
