Still Wicked!!!


It is still Wicked!!  A couple more days left of the Wicked Blog Hop.  Hope you are enjoying all of the awesome wicked blocks and projects.  Go here for the full schedule and visit the wicked blogs through Halloween.  

Halloween is going to be eventful this year!  Call in Frankenstorm!  Wind, rain,  cooler temperatures and in the North Carolina (this bears repeating - North Carolina) mountains the chance of SNOW!  Now that is Wicked. 

Saturday evening, Hubby and I went to our friends J & A's home for their annual Halloween party.  They go all out with great food, decorations and even a haunted trail.  I can't imagine the amount of time and effort that goes into putting together their party.  

I always offer to bring something and J will often suggest something pretty easy....like veggies and dip or chips and dip.  This year she asked me to bring brownies!  Hmmm...love some brownies!!!  So I made two batches...nothing fancy...one with caramel and nuts AND another with cayenne pepper...WICKED right?!  It was just a teaspoon of the cayenne pepper so there wasn't a pepper taste but a slow warming sensation in your mouth while you were eating them.  They were a hit and a topic of many conversations.  LOL

And because I appreciate J & A always inviting us to their fabulous party...I took a little something else...


Last weekend while I had my machine set up for embroidery, I stitched out a couple other designs...one for J and one for my sweet daughter.  I finished J's in time to take it with us to the Halloween Party.   Happy Halloween!


I finished the other one for my sweet daughter but the water erasable pen didn't "erase" when I added water...so it is going through the wash for the second time!  Hopefully it will come out.  If I am lucky and it does, I will share some pics.

Next up, still trying to catch up on the Craftsy BOM and working on my project for the Holiday Lane Pillow Blog Hop which begins on November 21.  I also would like to get started on Grandmother's Choice BOW.

'Til then...

~~Quilt Much!
