happy halloween and other stuff!

Happy Halloween everybody!  I hope everybody has a great day, don't eat too much candy, and try not to dwell on the fact that the holiday season is coming up fast!!!:(.
This is what people dress up as in my household:
Careful, hey what are you doing with that thing?

Battle Diva war cry needed here. 
Love the flip flops, don't you?, Should've seen when they went to an Anime Convention. :)p
Anyway, they are all out trick or treating, except for the 16 year old, he didn't feel like going.  He'll just eat what we have here, we get very little trick or treaters around here anymore, so more chocolate for him! I, on the other hand, have been studying for my final exam tomorrow in my competencies tomorrow morning.  I feel confident about the whole thing, she has really gone over everything in her lectures and such, so I feel good. 
Earlier today, I was working on my sewing room, and took a few pictures of some stuff.  First up is the quilt top I found at the Goodwill Clearance Center:

I love it, it is so nice!  The border fabric will have to come off and be fixed, the seam is coming apart in places, but it was worth it.  I knew there was a reason I go to the thrift stores.
My well-used Baby Go cutter.

2 1/2 inch squares cut from scraps.

various sized squares from scraps

I emptied 2 of these, Yippee!!!

Ok, so I emptied 2 of those little bins, but I still have 1 wall of fabric on shelves to go through, and at least 12 totes!  Yes, I said 12!  I have a slight fabric addiction (quit laughing, those of you who know me), and am trying to tame it. I  aspire to be this organized one day-  (quit snickering Mom!), I just need to move to another house.  (Yeah, right after I win the lotto, LOL).
Anyway, I have been doing some sewing -
I have been turning these:
 Into these:

It's my version of a postage stamp quilt.  Since my classes end this week, I will have 2 whole months to get some stuff done, so more posts will be coming more often than every 2-3 weeks.  I am going to have so much fun!!
Happy quilting everybody!
