Happy Halloween!

We enjoyed another Fantastic Friday Halloween Party at The Quilted Cottage. There was a wide variety of creative costumes and an awesome potluck. After some group singing with the Morbid Tabernacle Choir, we got down to some sewing.

The last photo is of Connie, Helen and me. If you correctly email me what you think we represent, I'll send a little treat to the name drawn from the correct guesses. You have until tomorrow night at midnight.

An Autumn Finish

Back in January, 2008, I made a pumpkin block at a Fantastic Friday night at The Quilted Cottage. It sat around until this post. Now almost four years from the beginning of this little project, I can report that it is a completed wall hanging! The timing of my finish corresponds to the upcoming holiday, too. I'm really happy with how it turned out and think it sat just long enough.

For some reason (maybe the soil) my morning glory blooms have been all purple in color instead of blue. The first year I planted them, there were blue flowers galore. Since then, only purple and a dramatic decrease in the amount of blooms. Imagine my surprise when I stepped outside yesterday and saw this.

I've been glued to the television or radio for every post season Tigers' ballgame. Each game is a roller coaster of ups and downs. The Tigers head back to Texas now and I'm hoping for two more wins. They've given us a tremendous year!
