The first part of Friday night I spent watching the movie Mars Needs Moms with my family and the other part I spent participating in the Friday Night Sew In. I didn't get tons of sewing done, but the family time was definitely worth it! We've all been so busy lately with school, soccer games, golf matches, and all kinds of other activities that an evening movie at home was the perfect treat for all of us!

As far as sewing results go, I was able to get the binding made for my Halloween Brocante Schnibble. The fabric is black and grey, kind of linen- like......I'm making up my own words here......and it has a spooky look to it. I'll show a closer picture when its actually on the quilt. Thanks to my friend Spidey for being my binding holder! Everyone else was busy!
I also got to work on my final LePetite project of the year. It's a make up actually. I missed the first LePetite project of this year because I was just starting my blog. So before the final parade in November, I want to have all twelve tops completed. Paganini is the one I need to finish to wrap it up for the year.
I prepped the fabric last night by starching and ironing before I started cutting! Usually if I use starch, I spray as I go along, but Linda from the Quilted Pineapple shared this tip awhile back and it makes so much sense to starch first, so I'm giving it a try. Thanks so much Linda!

When I went to my LQS yesterday to pick out that binding fabric these fun Halloween prints just had to go home with me. One will be the backing for a pumpkin project.....I'll just be early for next Halloween I'm thinking......and the other will be for who knows what. Don't you just love those cute owls pumpkins and ghosts? Spooky!! And who can resist candy corn? Certainly not me!! Enjoy the rest of your weekend!
