Before Halloween Fades Away

Well, it's officially Halloween tonight.

I want to wish all of you, dear and freakish friends, a very scary night and a frolicking one, as well. I plan to hold up in my bed reading "Vampire Darcy's Desires," as we have no little Halloweeners in our community, sadly, ...55 and older...you know. But, I am probably well "spent" after the rush to get things to my little grands this year. In addition to the boys' quilts, my grandgirls received Halloween trinkets and books, so they all were treated by Grammie and Grampie. Actually, we aren't your creepy, satanic type Halloweeners...just kindly, homemade baby 'treaters. :]
Above is Kellan's Quilt finished. This is the front side. The spooky house is the back side. I love how this one came out. It was mailed off a few days ago so I hope he gets it today ... or Monday at the latest.


Some beanie bags! Stuffed with Grampie's lentils... :} Wouldn't it be great if Grammie could take better pictures??

Here's a close up of one of my roses planted by DH. It is soooo fragrant that the whole back yard is perfumed by it. I hope it's not the last of the roses for the season! We tend to have a very long growing season because of our sunny, warm climate all year. I just love this rose. :]


Now.....it's on to Thanksgiving and Christmas for us all. I look forward to seeing all of your wonderful stitching. I'm going to try just to catch up on my WIPs and to start my little grandgirls' Christmas quilts. There will be 3 of those: Hadley, Ella and Amelia.
Thank you all for following me throughout Halloween. It's been fun. Congratulations to all of you who won in Missy Ann's Giveaway, and in Kathie's, and in Pumpkin Patch! Wasn't that fun!? (Well, for some of us, anyway... :l) LOL
Love and hugs,
Deb
