I have had some very positive emails about the Halloween quilt. I dug these out to decorate this weekend. I made this a long time ago. The border fabric is a Debbie Mumm, I haven't heard much about her in a while, anyone know what she is doing? This is my own pattern that I did as a block of the month for my guild, Penn Oaks.

This one was a pattern that I don't remember the name of because it too was made a long time ago. We are missing an eye....

This kind of goes along with the color scheme. It was very good. I have started the last one, The Girl Who Kicked The Hornets Nest. I resisted this trilogy for so long but am glad I jumped on the wagon. If you are a reader there is nothing better than a trilogy awaiting you!

Our neighbor and his wife have chickens and brought us some of these beautiful eggs. The top two are the most wonderful shade of turquoisey blue, they tasted pretty good too.

This is just for fun. When all of my 4 children were in junior high they had a class called "consumer science" also known as "Home Ec" back in the day. They all learned how to sew and made some pillows. Before they could use the sewing machine they had to take a test, probably for safety reasons. When they passed they got a license. When I saw this I made my daughter, Caitlin get one for me from her teacher. She was happy to oblige my whim!



  1. too funnnny to be certified to sew!!! Wish I had one of those! Really like the first pumpkin on today's post. I've toyed with doing somethink like that.....lots of faces without buying lots of pumpkins & having lots of mess (OK if you have a group of 'responsible' carvers) Just finished that book during the night. Need #3!

  2. Are you saying I am not "certifiable?"


I love to read your comments, they make my day!
