A Spooky Scare

I have finished Sew Spooky and took it to Joann's to find a backing fabric for the pillow I'm planning to make with it. After I dragged my son away from all the Halloween paraphernalia he helped me pick out the perfect material. We were going to see Legend of the Guardians after our shopping jaunt, and the line to pay was so long I hid my planned purchase under some spider web packets, and went off to the movies, planning to return. On the way back to Joann's I realized that Sew Spooky was not in the car! I remembered putting it in the shopping cart but not taking it out. With my heart in my throat we rushed into the store and approached customer service to see if someone had found it. I am happy to report that some kind soul turned it in, and it is now safely back in my possession. Moral of the story - do not put plastic bags with important projects in a shopping cart and expect them to magically follow you out of the store.

I'm really happy with the way Sew Spooky turned out and I hope to have a picture of the finished pillow soon. I'm off to work on it - now, where did I put it?
