My Halloween mantel! The three Jack O'Lanterns are the UFO I finished as queen. Thank you, thank you very much!! It's the equivalent of a pot holder, but a finish is a finish and I'm glad of it!
The three pumpkins are actual pumpkins! My friend J gave them to me and I was so impressed by what came out of her greenhouse this year! And the cat jumping over the jack was a treasure I found in Nebraska in August on my visit! It was still marked down from last year and I grabbed it!
Halloween is like decorating for Christmas but no stress about presents! That stress will come soon enough.
We had a heck of a storm this weekend here. DH was off on a golf trip and that's a shame - he loves storms much more than I do!!
It woke me up at 2:15 am on Saturday. That's hard to do!! I usually sleep hard in the middle of the night, and we're the middle floor in our condo building - hardly ever hear anything. AND we don't usually have thunder and lightning here! I've probably only heard 10 thunder booms since we moved here!! We've been here 6 1/2 years!!!!
The rain was pounding that hard! When we looked at the weather station site in our little town on the coast - the storm gave us THIRTY inches of rain in just 2 days!! Unbelievable! DH was doubting my definition of a storm - but he's a believer now!!
Stashbusters Online has a reminder for the 25th of each month to work on something "Christmas-y" and I always ignore it! And I'm always sorry I did. Well, believe it or not! This weekend I finished 8 dish towels! I'd found them in the depths of my closet looking for UFOs during my reign! Stuffed there after I'd finished some last winter.
They are very simple - meant to be used. And they are D*O*N*E! It's a new record for me! A work session before November!! Hip, Hip, Hooray!
Well, that's all for today! I'm off to a Fun Day at Guild. We're making baby quilts today for the annual baby shower our town has.
