It's been a whirlwind around here, lots to talk about.
Believe it or not, even with all the decorating, Halloween managed to sneak up on me. I don't know. There is just something out of whack when Halloween falls on a Sunday. It seems a bit of an oxymoron. Never the less, we managed to have fun with it.
The Friday before, I hosted a yummy "Groan-up's" Halloween dinner party complete with pasta bar for the main course and cream puffs with pumpkin pie ice cream for dessert. I bought the most delicious butternut squash ravioli from Costco and topped it with a browned butter/sage sauce...2D4!!
After dinner we played Werewolves of Millers Hollow, a fun party game similar to Mafia but more appropriately themed for a Halloween gathering. I even threw on a CD with Halloween sound effects, such as screaming women and chomping zombies, to make the atmosphere down right creepy at times.
Halloween night I broke out the pumpkin carving kit and proceeded to give a lobotomous makeover to my unsuspecting pumpkins.
In between all the revelry I've been getting my quilt on as well.
Simplify. What a great book! Wonderful, modern quilts that go together in a snap from pre-cuts.
And, speaking of quilting...
this little baby? Well, I made two of them at the same time. I finished the one for my Mom and will give it to her when I see her at Thanksgiving. This is the extra one.
So now it is on to Thanksgiving and then Christmas. Yay! It most definitely is the most wonderful time of the year.
