Disney Halloween

With half term and getting ready for the holiday I've not got much done and the camera is packed so I can't even post pictures of the little I have. The string blocks have been finished and sashed and it is waiting for it's borders. The quilt thinks it would like flying geese so I'm waiting out hoping that it will change it's mind. :D

The Steam a Seam came and so I've finished fusing all the dog blocks. They still need to be blanket stitched and of course with the Brother out of action I'm a bit stuck so that's on the back burner again.

The Speed Control for the Pfaff finally arrived. It replaces the foot pedal with an on/off switch and speed dial so that I don't have to squeeze the foot pedal by hand when the machine is on the frame. I've not had chance to properly trial it but I think it will be a godsend, I was getting awful pain and cramping in my hands after about 20 minutes and was having to stop and take a break. Hopefully this will make a difference.

I'm praying the weather in Disneyland Paris won't be too rainy. Cold is OK but wet would be horrible.

MIL is in charge of the dogs for a week. Hopefully they will all survive the experience. She does have a tendency to forget things like walks and food but they are pretty good at reminders!!!

This is Y trying hard to pull the same face as the pumpkin on our previous visit 3 years ago.

The boys looking slightly self conscious with Pooh Bear.

The fantastic face paint at the Halloween Party.

See you in a week.


  1. Hope you have a great time! I am sure the poochies will be fine with MIL.

    I'll definately take you up on that pattern when you are done, if you are certain you won't be needing it again.

  2. I've had a lot of fun with the doggy pattern but I can't imagine making another one. It'd be great if you can use it. I'll get in touch for your address when I'm done.

  3. Ohhh how fun! We're big Disney fans in this house, and can't wait until our next visit in 2008!

  4. OMG look how little they look.
    Great pictures!
