A Wicked Little Peek...Eeeek!

Soma from "Whims And Fancies" is hosting a Halloween Blog Hop starting Oct.1st.
Every day for the month of October you'll be able to hop to a different blog on the list and grab a Halloween themed foundation pieced pattern designed JUST for this hop!  I hear there will be weekly prizes too! 
Can you say Trick or Treat? 
This will be my first time presenting my own free pattern for you to download and stitch. I thought this would be "wicked" easy - I design pp patterns for myself all the time. And I know how to make a PDF file. Then I realized I had not the first clue how to share the pattern with YOU.
Thanks to my awesome FB friend, author and fellow quilter... "Forest Jane"...that problem was solved when she shared her "PDF prepping and saving and posting" expertise with me! Thanks Jane!
I just finished my block last night and breathed a sigh of relief - my file worked - the size is right - it's really CUTE....alas I can't show it to you until my "day" which is Oct.23 (wow-that's my b'day as well...coincidence? I think not..haha)....BUT I can show you just a peek...
Here are my fabs and one little section of the pattern....did I mention it's CUTE? I can't wait to add some embellishments to the finished design. I think I'll turn my 10" block into a little wallhanging for my Mom.
I can't wait see what everyone else has designed.

Do you like to foundation piece? If you answer yes...then please leave a comment below and also include your 'guess' as to what you think my block will be. You can comment (just once please) until midnight Oct. 15th.  I'll let Mr.Random do his thing and pick one lucky winner on the 16th.  To that winner I will send a little packet of the fabrics I used  (same as the ones in the pic above) ~ just enough bits and pieces to make my 10" block...  (the pattern will not be included - the winner will have to print it out when it posts on the 23rd).'s time to feed our 'wicked' kids... 
(could that be a hint? maybe yes...maybe no)

I just love to hear from you and I truly do read every comment. Sometimes life gets a wee bit crazy and I'm not always able to reply to them all...but I'll keep trying! If you are Anonymous or a no-reply blogger, leave your email with your comment, otherwise there's no way I can reply to you - and maybe you're okay with that - but if there's a give-away and you'll never know!
