It's almost Halloween, and I decided to celebrate by taking today off from work. I thought I'd share one of my photos from the Fair too. Such talented pumpkin carving!
Last night I was able to go stitching with some friends rather than going to school. I actually managed to get something done! I stitched almost the whole outline of the cartouche last night. Not bad, eh? When I got home, I finished out the outline and started Jenny's name. I love the way this is turning out!
And since I had some time at home today, I thought it would be a good time to finish up the baby quilt top I've been working on. I'm really pleased with how it looks with the pattern and the 30s Repro fabrics. My piecing isn't perfect, but I keep reminding myself that "it doesn't have to be perfect to be beautiful". Anyway, I'm happy to have it done. Next, on to the quilting. I hope to be able to send this off to my friend in the next few weeks.
I plan to spend some more time with Jenny Bean this afternoon. And tomorrow night, Eric and I will be partaking in my annual Halloween tradition. Oh, and if you want a peek at how his birthday apple pie turned out, you can see it here.
I am grateful for a night out with my friends.
