Watcha working on wednesday

This is the 4th time of trying to post, my computer is driving me mad!!!!Last week i was supposed to be upgraded for faster broadband and i have had nothing but trouble,4 times i had all the pictures everything all ready to post then it just switched off, okay enough of my moaning.Last week i was working on a couple of signs, this week i managed to finish them, i know they are not perfect but i like them.The next item i would like to try and stencil is a gameboard,i have the check stencil but now i need to find toppers and sides to finish it off.The other item i am just about to finish is this halloween strip quilt.When i was in my local quilt shop last year the lady had one on display and she told me they were quick to run up and i do so love halloween.I made one for my friend but didn't manage to finish my one on time but now this will be on time for this halloween. This christmas i am hoping to make a few strip for presents so i will keep you posted.Its great to do this watcha working on wednesday, it spurs me on to finish items, thank you leslie.Take care everyone~kate~

Are you addicted to signs now? I just love them! I joke that you have to be able to read to come to my house :)

The quilt is really cute! It would be a great way to use up those end pieces on your fabric that don't always seem quite wide enough! :)

Have a great day!

You're signs look great! I especially love the quilt. I have never tried a larger quilt, but I would like to.

Today I stopped on the way home from getting my hair done at Crafters Showcase, it is a craft mall with alot of booths and they had so many signs I couldn't pick one I loved them all:)Your signs are so neat and I'm glad Leslie is helping all of us get out projects done:) Sweet quilts too!
Oh, I use any kind of black paint, spraypaint or craft paint doesn't matter.

Great signs! You're doing such a fine job.

... and I was just reading a novel and that mentioned "boot". I get it now. It's the trunk of a car. I like that. I think I'll call ours a boot from now on.
