The Quilted Cottage Fantastic Friday Halloween Party
My sister, Connie, and I are known as 'the sisters' among our quilting friends. We decided to use the term for our costumes this year. We used old choir robes and made the collars and head pieces. Our sewing buddy, Helen, said she usually didn't dress up for the party. Well, we appointed her "Mother Superior". So here she is with 'The sisters'. Helen found the wooden crosses for us and Connie's husband fashioned the wooden ruler on a leather strap for Helen. We had a terrific time. Some of the comments were, "quilting can become a habit" - "those gals are habitual quilters" and "no nunsense in this area". Many of the gals dressed up for the evening of sewing which began with a delicious potluck, of course. There was a Halloween FQ and candies next to each name tag. Jackie, also, give each attendee a charm (witch hat with dangling pumpkin) to add to our sewing machine pins. Hope you enjoy some of the other costumes, too.
