Happy Halloweeeeeen!

I quilted a *Witchy* Tablerunner
to get you in the mood!
I made one of these last year,
for my daughter’s home that you can see HERE.
This one is my smocking friend’s,
who took the class with me,
but didn’t have time to finish hers
so I completed it for her.

I left the sewing of the button eyes to her two girls,
so that they could feel like they had a hand in finishing it.
It is wonderful to see how interested they are in
learning how to sew.

This photo, taken on my front porch bench,
in the sun, really shows off the quilting.

We got to see Ms. C’s school parade outside on Friday.
It was 38º & VERY foggy!
They marched along quickly, believe me!
I captured some of the great costumes that the teachers wore.
I think they were having as much
fun as the kids.

I didn't make her costume this year,
but I made her a Halloween tutu for dance lessons.

Fall apples, dance, cucumbers, soup 058

I wish you could have seen her,
twirling around in this one!

I'm joining The Tablescaper for her
Follow me over to her house to see more scary stuff!
Have a safe &


  1. Hi Rett! Is that a cute table runner or what! Love the costume parade! And...I never show my grandie's faces either...too many weirdos out there. Love her costume! Happy week!...hugs...Debbie

  2. The runner is so cute! Equally cute is your little Dorothy. I love costumes like that.

    I laughed at the crayon. As a young teacher, I went as one too. Actually, I was a crayon sticking out of a huge crayola box. The kids in my class all came as either crayons or coloring books.

    We won a special prize by the PTA for being a box of fun!
