So do you get caught up in Holiday making? Maybe "caught up" is a harsh way to put it. Does a holiday come around and you want the special theme fabric and patterns and maybe a new ruler? I do. I am particularity enamored with Halloween and Christmas (yeah I know I am not alone) and this year I went through my same mania.

This year I got smart! I had this Zombie Apocalypse Fabric pulled for the giant skull which has been sitting in my stash for exactly one year, and I need a new pouch to hold all of my Quilting Class Supplies.

And then I remembered. Last year when I bought this fabric at Mrs. Pugsleys Emporium during the NS Fibre Arts Festival in Amherst - I had bought it to make something for my nephew. He and I share the love of the ghosties. So, I made him a pouch too! Same treatment, but the medium size, no quilting, more stabilizing, a neon zipper, and skulls inside! Rad.
