Ahoy Me Hearties!

Arrr, sure enough, it's Talk Like A Pirate Day!

Behold my skeleton crew (most of them anyway):

These are the swabs what accompanys me on me raids up and down the west coast, pillaging quilt shops and bead stores. "We named the monkey Jack."

And look what I found in the bilge:

More orphan blocks! More significantly, Halloween orphan blocks! Probably not enough for a quilt, but maybe enough for a placemat or two for DD and the DGD's. DD even asked for a Halloween theme quilt for the baby. Apparently she doesn't have enough quilts/blankets already. (She's just starved for some Halloween like her mommy. Halloween is our favorite holiday in this family.)

I have layered and pin basted the black and lime green top. I believe I even know how I'm going to quilt it. But first I may have to make me inner critic walk the plank, arrr!

Those Halloween blocks are great! Depending on the size, one might be able to go into a bib or something too -- just and idea...

As for inner critics walking the plank -- that's kind of where they belong!

A whole lot of Halloween going on at your house and it looks good! I heard about Talk Like A Pirate Day. Where do people come up with these things?? LOL
