October! Hooray!! It's finally October! My favorite month by far!! You, too?
I spent all morning putting away my Back to School stuff, and putting out my Halloween decor!
It's like seeing old friends, each time I pull out favorite things from Halloweens long also...when my boys were little and October was so magical and fun!
Hocus Pocus, The Halloween Tree, The Worst Witch and The Great Pumpkin have all been on the player in my sewing room for days now!!
This October will be extra special, as our first grandchild will be born any day!! This little man will be born in the same month as his Daddy, my younger son Anthony! So very many reasons for October to stay a most beloved month!!
Our local quilt guild had a summer challenge where we were given a page from one of those A Block A Day calendars. We could make whatever we wanted using that block. One option was to make the block in red, white and blue colors to be made into Quilts of Honor for our Veterans, so this was that block!
I also made four other blocks in fall fabrics, fussy cutting the centers, which I made into a table runner for my dear sister, Sally, who lives nearby.
She loves toile and I found a cool fall toile to use for the background and backing!!!
It was super fun to make! Love using all those greys and blues for our little man on his way!!
Yogi wants to know if you are excited about October, too!?!
