October NewFO Challenge Linky Party and Giveaway




Boo!
It's the scary Halloween version of

2014 NewFO Challenge

These scary cats want to see your new projects from the month of October. Continue if you dare!


I wish we were playing for something scarier, but the best I can do is this flying geese lapel pin. The worst that's probably going to happen is that you'll get bombed if they fly over your head. (And I think you know what they'll be dropping.)


So here's what I've been working on during October. Mine are finished, but don't let that scare you because finishes are never required at the NewFO Challenge.

First and scary-most, the Grim Ripper. I started and finished this project all in one day.


This was a free pattern from the Fons & Porter website last year, and it was on my to-do list forever after. Now it's done.

Also, I sewed constantly until I finished this fall table runner for the "Let's Book It" challenge. It's looking so pretty in my dining room now.



And that's it for my new projects for the month. My grinning friend here would like to see what's new in your sewing room now.


Here are my simple and friendly rules:

1.  Please link-up with your newly started projects from October, finished or not.  If you feel like it, show us the progress you've made on any other previously posted NewFO projects.

2.  Please link back to this post from your blog.  Also, please link to your blog post, not your blog. Links to entire blogs will be edited.  Links provided for the sole purpose of promoting other events or shopping experiences will be deleted without apology. Please do not link to your Etsy shops or other giveaways and/or promotions you have going on your own blog. To be clear, it is okay to link to other events, but I want to see your NewFO's as a part of your post. 

3.  Don't have a blog?  Upload an image to this FlickR group and link to that.  If you have questions about how to do that or about how to link up, please email me.  If you're having trouble posting your image, email it as an attachment, and I will be happy to post it for you.  Please know that it takes a bit for your thumbnail to appear, so don't despair.  It will appear eventually.  You might need to "refresh".

4.  Obviously, I need some way to contact you no matter how you link up.  No email address and no other way to contact you equals no entry in the giveaway.  Email me separately if you need to.

I'll leave this linky party open until one minute before midnight on Thursday, November 6, 2014. Winner of the flying geese lapel pin will be announced on Friday, November 7, 2014! We will ship anywhere in the known Universe, so everyone is welcome! 



Go ahead! Scare me!

I love the black cat Halloween humor on the blog today. Happy Halloween. Both projects are perfect for October. The leaf runner turned out beautifully.

I finally made it. Those pictures are great and that Cheshire cat would make a great wall hanging.
