Angelica Flysquirter, the Witches of Giggleswick, and Other Random Stuff

Happy, Happy, October!!!
One of my favoritest months of all!
In my book, it's the official start of the Spooking Season.
 
And, my season started off in the most wicked sweet way when I received this adorable little fella in the mail.....
 
 
A gift from a wickedly funny little witch named Angelica Flysquirter.....
She is perhaps better known to most of you as Brenda from The Rusty Thimble.  You see, Angelica....er...Brenda and 12 other delightful witches (the "Witches of Giggleswick") recently hosted the first annual Witches of Gigglewick Halloween Bloghop.  Not only did the hop introduce me to some amazing artists who share a passion for all things black and orange, but also thirteen amazing creations were given to 13 incredibly lucky winners...  I believe I was one of the luckiest of them all as I won Angelica's Brenda's adorable pumpkin fella.  
I love him to pieces Brenda!!
  
As for the "other random stuff," hmmmm.....not much is new here.
Autumn has begun to spin her own kind of magic, although this year the colors seem a bit more muted and subdued for some reason.
 



 
 

And how's this for random: I'm back to hooking too.....No....not on the corner Sillies.  If you recall, I used to RUG hook quite a bit, but, uh, well haven't in a long, long, while.  For a few panicky moments I actually forgot where I had stashed my cutter....  Anywho....I need to share this with you to keep me on task because I have to have this completely hooked by the end of next week for a workshop I committed to attending.  Eeek!  If you never see this smilin' lil' Jack again, you'll know what happened (er....what didn't happen....)


Till next time....be good....be wicked good!!

I'm outside, a long way from the bathroom, with a cup of coffee, and I read your post's title and the giggles start. Good thing I can still move pretty fast.

Catching up a little on blogging friends and just came from Brenda's where she posted photos of some of her snowmen creations. Looks like her fabulous talent extends to pumpkin people as well! Hope your project is coming along--it looks wicked good! ~Roberta
