A Ghoulish Welcome!


Thank you for joining us on the first day of the Wicked blog hop!

Once upon a time there lived wicked witch who refused to be foul on Halloween. All of her friends told her it just wasn't right! They said she should stick her tongue out at small children so their parents slap them when they stick their tongues out back at her. 

But no matter how hard she tried, she just couldn't be nasty. In fact, even though her skin was mottled green and dress was decayed black lace, she couldn't resist the desire to be girly…

“Pink! Give me pink!” she cried. Her friends merely laughed.

“How ghastly you are!” she retorted through tears.

Being a witch, she decided to cast a spell whereby all her friends would spend eternity in the cross threads of fabric, forced to endure pink on Halloween.

So, do not be alarmed by the forthcoming dreadful countenances —they are simply the ex-friends of the wicked witch. In addition, let this be a lesson to you—pink is indeed fabulous for Halloween!

First, the wicked witch made a Ghastlie kitchen island runner:

Then she took the leftovers and made a roll-up bag, starting with a 10.5 block and then added to it...
 (measuring 15 X 15 X 7)—nice!


But the island runner was very lonely so the wicked witch made a tablecloth:

(sun shadows--sorry!)

Funny story—the witch got up in the middle of the night for some brew and after she turned out the lights she realized that the bones fabric glows in the dark! Score!


In honor of non-traditional holiday colors, the wicked witch scoured her stash and would like to offer a charm pack of Christmas fabric that has (gasp!) turquoise blue. Leave a comment below to be entered in the draw!

  3. What a talented wicked witch! Not only a cute story but such creative ideas using The Ghastlies. Love the fact that the bones glow in the dark. I think this witch needs a pair of ruby slippers in hot pink! I'm also a person who likes a white Christmas tree trimmed in turquoise so I'd be happy to take that charm pack off your hands, lol.
