Hope you're feeling Ghastlie!

We welcome you all, come friend or come foe,
To view all the wonderful things we have made
From blog to blog you can choose to go
Our sewing rooms you will want to raid.

Everything I'm showing is, oh, so Ghastlie
A pouch, some baskets, a carrying case
From the first of the first to the very lastly
and upon each one a Ghastlie face.

So let's get started without further adieu
Come peruse the things made by my hand
I'm ready to show all my projects to you.
I hope your time here will be grand!

Prudence's Persnickety Pouch

First off, there's a pouch with plenty of room
With a daughter on front with her hammer
Only Mathilda ever carries a broom,
But her daughter can sure make you stammer!



Some treat bags are next to hold goodies galore
Mathilda and son both are present
Their faces you may choose to love or abhor
But some treats inside would surely be pleasant!
Beastly Bitty Baggies


Some fabric baskets line the wall
For holding some odds and some ends
These are not too big but they're not too small
And they're waiting right here for some friends.

Fraidy Cat Fabric Basket 1

Fraidy Cat Fabric Basket 2
A group of witches plans their spells
The way I plan what I sew.
A book, some pencils, a few pastels
I'm packed and ready to go!





I am giving away the Persnickety Pouch at the beginning of the post. Leave a comment below to be entered. You must be a follower to win. I will also be choosing a name from my comment list for the daily grand prize giveaway over at Madame Samm's blog.
Today's prize from Madame Samm is Creative Grid Rulers.

Good luck and have a dreadfully Ghastlie day!
