Aurifil Designer of the Month - Oct

Is October seriously almost OVER?
How did THAT happen???

With all the pre-market and market frenzy going on,
not to mention a massive booth at PIQF....and 
lots of other crazy things this month, it would seem we missed posting this month's Aurifil designer!

Thought I'd better hurry and do that before Hurricane Sandy hits my neck of the woods and I lose power.  The next thing I know, it could actually be NOVEMBER!

So without further ado...
Meet Amanda Woodward-Jennings:

Check out her website called The Frosted Pumpkin Stitchery

Cute stuff!

And learn all about her sweet stitchery designs by following her blog MsMcPorkchopQuilts.

And her block for October?  Ommigosh.  SO adorable.  
I'm thinking since I'm holed up waiting for a big storm...
(which literally means wearing my pj's all day!)
I think I might just stitch up this cutie. In fact, I may even finish it before Halloween! 

Have you been stitching the Aurifil BOM? Have you uploaded pics to the flickr folder?
(Click *here*)
If so, tell us which one is yours, we'd LOVE to see what you're stitchin'!

Meanwhile, stay tuned.  Lots of fun stuff in store.  We've got an Aurifil Designers Ornament blog hop coming up.  A Henry Glass Holiday Party, and we're putting together an all VOGUE issue of our emag.

And now....I'm off to stitch.

Trick or TREAT?!
Who knew that when we designed Vogue it would make such GREAT Halloween fabric??

How cute are these little pillows?

Love these witchy feet!

This is what happens when an idea pops into your head and you're getting ready to leave for sew like the wind!  And then you cut kits so all our fabulous friends can make them too!

If you'd like a kit, click on over to 

and grab them up before they're gone!

As a bonus, we found our awesome Fairfield pillow forms at Joann's ON SALE until Oct. 13.

No trick!  Just yummy fabric TREATS....
