Counting Down to Halloween

Another beautiful fall weekend with just a little wind and the promise of rain coming this week. I'm enjoying this fall so much as comfortable days and cool nights stretch on.

One of my projects reached its new owner so I can show it now. You've had peeks of the fabrics

Here is the finished little quilt. I used the pattern Spider Pumpkin from Fall 2008 Easy Quilts. I made the spider webs with Fun Fur yarn.

It's now in the mountains of North Carolina at the home of our older daughter, Amy. She has loved Halloween since she was little and we always had so much fun decorating and celebrating this historical holiday.

We are sad that the OU Sooners lost to Texas on Saturday. The Red River Rivalry is always a big fall event. Maggie and her husband (both OU grads) went to Texas for the game. Amy earned her Ph.D. at Vanderbilt so we are also cheering for the Commodores. Her husband has his Ph.D. from Tennessee so we also support the Vols who are struggling this year. Needless to say, football is one of our major fall interests. We're also big basketball fans as well. Watching games on tv is a great time to cut out quilt pieces or do some hand stitching :)

Today I'm finishing more of the little quilted Halloween baskets. I also have an apron to finish as a gift.

Have a great Monday. Thanks so much for stopping by for a visit.
