I woke up today thinking, "It's only Tuesday? I have the whole week left to get things done!" On a related note, I love my iron supplement. The best part of this week is what's happening on Friday. My real-life besties are coming for a visit. I need to think of a new name for them, since I don't live close to them, either. All of my besties now live in my phone and/or computer. I'm learning to cope.

One thing all my besties have in common is sewing. Another thing is how much they love me. A third thing is that sometimes they are jealous of me. But mainly, it's sewing. We may do some of that this weekend. Or, we may just watch Pitch Perfect and laugh hysterically and drink Diet Coke. Whatever we do, it will be nice to be together.

I got to work on my Halloween Swoon this week. I finished block #5. I think it's my favorite so far.

 I love how the black stands out and the darling purple in the middle.

Did I ever show you block 4?
 It is not my favorite. I had a cutting issue. Or a losing fabric issue. It caused me to need to piece one of the components. This block will probably be hidden in the bottom corner of the quilt.

And now, all 5 together.
I am in love. And I also apologize for the weird angle. It's just, well, awkward. But back to being in love. I am so glad I decided to make this quilt. It is going to be a favorite for certain. Halloween is one of my favorite holidays. I really hope I get this finished by this year!

Linking up to Fabric Tuesday.

Today Colleen referred to herself and me as "the awesome twins." Feel free to use that. :) So excited for Friday!

Those swoon blocks are looking hot -- that's going to be one cute quilt. I call my computer friends my invisible friends -- but since you've actually met them, they can't be invisible so ... moving on ... guess we'll have to work on that one. ;-D

Um, I am not going to your house this weekend? Not sure what you are talking about 'your real life besties'??????
