Halloween is just a couple weeks away. My dear friend Needled Mom sent me a pattern for candy bags for Miss T and D and I finished them this weekend. It's a nice pattern that works up really quickly and you could put any number of combinations of colors and patterns. I put their names on with my embroidery machine but covered them up for in this shot. Thank you NM for sending me the pattern!
I have been trying to organize my sewing room. After the big make over a few years ago I have kind of let things slide a bit........ahem........quite a bit. I have found all kinds of goodies that I forgot that I had so have a slew of projects to work on. I discovered that I had already bought the sashing, border and back fabric for the quilt that I am making Miss T for Christmas........so now I have two sets of fabrics to pick from........ I normally make a new Christmas wall hanging each year for my DIL and grand kids so must get going on that. I found a kit with all the different fabrics but the directions and picture of the project is not there....... I am hopeless.
We had another hay ride last night with the Sparkies from our Awana group at church. I was expecting twenty and about 35 arrived! PLUS the person that was supposed to bring the dessert FORGOT so I was trying to find something in my kitchen and Mom's kitchen to give them. I had some little bags of M & M's so those were the dessert instead of going into the Halloween bags! Most of the parents came too which was nice plus a couple of neighbors were walking by so we invited them to go to.
This young man was in a cast so we thought it better that he go in the Rhino and not in the hay. :o(
It was a good ride and the kids saw some deer which was really exciting especially for those that had never seen one before. Some of the adults saw a ten point buck! Now Val, I know you are drooling! heehee!
We always have a big bonfire.
After seeing the horses and filling up on hotdogs and punch the kids and parents headed home. Next week we have the 9 and 10 year olds and will probably have around 40 and then that will be that for this year and the boys will move up to the stable. Waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa, I don't want them to leave for the winter!! It's only about 5 miles away but it's not like I can look out my window at any time and see them or walk out and take them a carrot. Waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa!
Mom had a birthday last week and turned 86 years young! Everyone came in to see her plus she got a lot of phone calls and birthday cards. Cards are still coming in and she really enjoys them. I think she looks younger then her age don't you? I gave her a new perm today so she is all spiffed up to head back to Florida in a few weeks. HAPPY BIRTHDAY MOM!
I usually have a buddy when I am down in my sewing room. This time it was Munchie. See this pile of fabric, it's all put away now and my cutting table is clear! Yay!
Now she is out on the sun porch as I was out there watching tv.
This is Noodles, I can tell by the foot hanging down, he has some white on him.
They are great company and I enjoy them very much except when they catch a bird. I keep telling them that I am going to put a cowbell on them so they can't sneak up on the poor unsuspecting birds!
Well I must get back down in the sewing room and hunt for the missing pattern. I won't rest until I find it, it seems like I spend half my time looking for something. Anybody else out there lose things??? :o)
