Finished for Friday: Broomsticks

Welcome to another Finished for Friday. I hope you can join me and show and tell anything you've accomplished this week. First up, another block for my "Hocuspocusville" quilt.

When I bought this pattern at a quilt show, the woman who sold it to me said that she had embroidered each of the blocks in an evening in order to get the quilt done in time for the show. I'm in awe. Either I am a really slow embroiderer or she was really fast.

Also this week, Drama Girl had a call back for her "Fiddler on the Roof" audition. This time the director had her read for Tzeitel. We'll find out if she's cast next Tuesday. Fingers crossed.

Lit and Laundry


Your turn now. Show us what you've been up to. You can grab the code for this button from my sidebar if you'd like. Thanks for playing along!

I kind of like the idea of living in HocusPocusVille! (sounds like it should be a show on Boomerang...and that maybe Hong Kong Phooey lives there!)

Good luck to the Tzeitel to be...I'm confident in your family's talent.

Have a great weekend!

That is too cute! I think I need to take some embroidery lessons from you. Those are free right?

Good luck to Drama Girl. Can't wait to hear all about rehearsals and costumes!

Laura said...

I wish I knew how to embroider! Maybe something I should work on.

Have a great weekend and good luck with the Fiddler Auditions!

I think the woman may have lied about doing them all in one night. Your's are coming out great.

Okay please tell me you have a pattern stamped directly onto the fabric, cuz I am IMPRESSED. I used to love cross stitch, but not so much any more.. and embroidery? not really capable!

That is awesome! Where did you get the pattern? Is is available online?

Laura said...

Hey!! You have a reader named Laura who actually accomplished something...I'm going to pretend I am she.
