Cackle, Cackle, Cackle!! I'm at it again! My shifty sewing machine and I created a holiday masterpiece (at least for my quilting skills) that will be in the family for years as it goes on display each October to come. With my pointy hat on I zipped away nearly straight lines while Wilder napped -or hung out watching "Fiddler on the Roof" with me in his playpen. I know, a VERY Halloween movie, all those bearded, dancing Jews. Exactly what I think of when October comes around.
I marveled at my foresight and patience as what could easily be a one day project took about a week as I prewashed the cloth and ironed it neatly during the heavenly moments of peace when my wild one was sleeping. Yes, very impressive for me since I like to knock things out as quick as possible when the crafty mood hits me.
So, since you all can't come over to have a little holiday shindig in your Halloween costumes and get sugar headaches with me, I wanted to share a little of the festive spirit scattered throughout our home! Happy Fall -particularly to those lucky folks who have their leaves turning and a brisk chill in the air :)
