Leaf Me Happy Day 5 with a Touch of Wicked ...

At my house, I've been welcoming Fall
with Cherry's Leafs Me Happy blog hop,
however, you will notice that a bit of the
Wicked wants to creep into the picture ...
especially if you count the snow we had
in the foothills this week along with the
temps in the 20s overnight ... Fall is quickly
getting Wickedly shoved out of the way ....
what's up with that???
 It is indeed the fifth day of
Cherry's Leafs Me Happy
blog hop ... inspiration is falling
colorfully all over blogland!
So I share with you the schedule for:
Friday 5
I'm sure we'll all have lots to enjoy
along the leaf-strewn trail today.
And while you're hopping along
this weekend, playing catch-up on your blog reading
if you're anything like me .... I'd like to share another
reminder with you ... my very Wicked friends ...
Yes ... the Wicked Blog Hop will be
soon upon us and I thought how fun
it would be to share more than just a
reminder ...
Why not have a giveaway for my followers??
A Wicked Giveaway!!
Today I offer up to you a kit of Halloween treats.
This is a new pattern by Pacific Rim Quilt Company,
a 2 Fabric Applique Quilts pattern which will
finish 24" x 36" ... the kit includes a yard of the
dark fabric for the front and binding,
3/4 of a yard of the orange and
3/4 of a yard for the backing.
Kinda sweet, without the need to brush your
teeth afterwards, eh?
So, Wicked Friends ... if you are a follower
of mine, and wish to have a chance at this
giveaway, leave me one comment letting me
know you are a follower and tell me in the same
comment whether you like the Tricks or the Treats
at  this time of year.  And yes, my very dear
international friends, even if you don't
partake in the halloween traditions, you
may still enjoy the treat of the giveaway if
you enter as I will ship it to you if you when.
The giveaway will close Friday, October 12th
and winner will be notified via email.
No-reply commenters will need to include
their email address in their comments or
I'm sorry to say, I won't be able to count
your entry as I won't be able to contact you.
Enjoy your weekend everyone!


  1. My Wendy, you are one busy bee! I am a follower and I always love this time of the year. The last 5 years I had a grand-daughter in and out of the hospital around this time of the year and I try to have some tricks or treats for her and her siblings. I also try to make the rounds with her cousins with bag of treats. My parents are super for making it fun for us when I was youn. I look forward to seeing what goodies you have during the wicked blog hop. Thanks for sharing...Judith, Texas

  2. Hi Wendy. I am a new follower. Love your blog. I have in the past few years not celebrated Halloween due to an accident at work on 10-31-10. I now have a 2 year old grandson and he lights up my life. My daughter has been making little decorations for him letting him hang them at his eye level all over the house. I picked up my fall pumpkin UFO and finished it with my grandson standing elbow to elbow with me watching me sew. He was overjoyed as it came to life. I am hoping this year I can once again enjoy the Trick as well as the Treat.

  3. Hi Wendy. I'm a follower, and a wicked hopper! What an awesome giveaway. I prefer tricks! (Something wicked this way comes....Mwhahahahaha)

  5. I'm a new follower. I love the blog hop - get so much inspiration. I like a taste of the treats - chocolate, chocolate, chocolate! Quilting and chocolate just go together. It's one of the cardinal rules of quilting.

  6. I'm a UK follower and Halloween is not as big here as it is with you! With no children at home any more I have to resort to trick or treating by myself!(only kidding!!)

  7. Wendy I got out my Halloween fabric last night, scraps and all, and ironed all of it! I don't know yet what I'm making but I'm looking and planning. :) Of course, like most folks, I'm loving treats and especially when they are chocolate! Yesterday at work I was very glad we didn't have a candy machine or I'd have spent all my $ on candy - I was craving it! And of course I follow you...just wish I could follow you out there to see your snow. blessings, marlene
