We live in a fairly isolated area and have not had any trick-or-treaters in the last five years. I'm assuming the same will be true tonight since nothing has changed in our 'neighborhood'.
Having the little kids come to our door dressed in their costumes used to be so much fun! Miss Molly, our now matronly Scottie, was always happy to don her pink ballerina outfit for greeting the kids. Molly is somewhat a celebrity in our county...she has participated in several 'personality' type dog shows and has made lots of friends and fans! My husband's boss, who doesn't particularly like dogs, loves Molly and asks about her well being on a regular basis.
Last night I actually finished the Wacky Web Halloween quilt I pieced together last year. It was quilted by Reggie, my long-arm quilter. I love Halloween colors....the oranges, acid greens, purples and yellows ~~ all set off with large amounts of black~~~~~
This quilt turned out fairly large. The backing is a spooky purple and it was quilted with variegated thread in Halloween colors. I had quite a good selection of prints in my stash and only had to buy the border fabric for this project. The free tutorial is available at Missouri Star Quilt Company.
There will be a big pot of homemade potato soup for dinner tonight with cornbread. I would be thrilled if some little goblins stop by begging for candy!!!
My prayers are with everyone who has been touched by Hurricane Sandy. The devastation is unbelievable and the loss of lives tugs at my heart. I have never seen a storm in our country of this magnitude.
Until we meet again...Peace and Plenty.
