Good Morning---

I'm finishing up the Cheerios and I'm off to work in a flash. It's Halloween. We usually don't get trick or treaters out our way, but I have candy just in case....

I completed the top border for the quilt I'm working on and I just have 4 appliqued trees left.
I don't think I'm going to make the November 1st deadline, But, I'm pretty close.

I sent My college kids Halloween Chinese takeout boxes filled them with Fortune cookies. I completed a handmade card with a snapshot of them as kids trick or treating. Yesterday I bundled up their mail and sent it to them. Probably missing them a little. I just want them to know they are thought of.

We've had a snow shower but it has melted. It even got into the 60 degree temperatures yesterday.

I'm hoping for a weekend of sewing and playing in the the woods. We have to enjoy the warmer weather and it is fast leaving us.

Hope everyone has fun tonight, be careful....

I loved sending those kinds of care packages to my girls when they were at college. I think I need to send them a little card this week just because.

Moved to South America from Michigan in August and have been missing autumn. REALLY enjoyed looking through recent posts and seeing the beautiful pictures. Both of your sewing projects AND the scenery in your town.
I'm so glad I googled "Michigan quilters" :-)

It must be very frosty there if you have to wrap up your pumpkins in a quilt! LOL :) What a great photo. Love those colors.

Not many trick or treaters this year either. I recognize some of the fabric in your border which dates back aways.. good use of some classic calico!

Love that pumpkin with the quilt "scarf"! :) I sent my middle daughter who likes to pretend she is independent (unless it suits her purpose)and is too social to call home a pair of underwear that has the phrase on it... "call your mother"!!!!
