I found this cute pattern, Happy Jack, about five years ago. Each year I say I am going to make it! Well….it is now underway.
I have always loved Halloween and have been invited to participate in the Halloween Haunts 2015 Blog Hop so I really want to finish this happy fellow off to share. Have you done any of these projects using the fusible grids? I love my Santa and snowman that I have done using this technique.
I also pulled out my Little Letters that was a QAL with Temecula Quilt Company. I needed to finish my last row of letters and get it quilted and bound. The colors look a bit washed out here, but the letters are more distinguished looking.
Since the colors were kind of marine-ish looking, I chose to piece the back with a whimsical sea scene.
It’s been a busy week with family birthdays and farewell parties for college bound grandchildren. Tuesday evening we spent at the Hollywood Bowl. It is such a beautiful place to spend a summer evening.

The big screen was there because they showed the film 2001- A Space Oddessy while the L.A. Philharmonic played the music. The music was incredible, but the film was rather strange - in my humble opinion.
The weekend is here and I am looking forward to the quiet in the house. The remainder of the grands return to school next week so I guess that means it really is the end of the summer. How quickly it went this year! I’m already missing the extra daylight, but I am looking forward to the winter rains they are forecasting for us. We just need to finish getting prepared for it – tree trimming, roof checked, drains cleared, etc. Maybe I should get sandbags!!! Of course, if we are all ready you know it won’t happen.
