Happy Halloween!

Are you ready for all the trick-or-treaters tonight?
My kids are anxiously awaiting for evening time to get here. I on the other hand am not looking forward to it.
It's cold out there!
No snow, though we did get some flurries over the weekend but it's windy and it looks like it could put the rain down any minute now.
The weekend was pretty quiet.
I spent the whole day in the kitchen Saturday making a nice meal. I tried a new recipe for hot rolls which turned out really good and played around with a cake recipe that I may post about later. We spent our evenings sitting around the  kitchen table playing Yahtzee with the kids.

On the sewing front I did manage to get my mini "Give Thanks" pillows finished as well as another stitchery that I'll show you as soon as I get it framed. I also decided to list a few of my stitcheries on Ebay just to see how they do. If they sell then super and if they don't then I'll place them back in the box until I get enough made to take to a show.
Diane over at Olde-Time-Stitchin had a fabulous sale the other day for her email list cutomers and I decided to take advantage of it. Now I have so many new patterns that I can't wait to tie into ~ kinda hard to pick which one I want to start on first.

Well that's about all that is new around here. The kids are home from school today due to a teacher instructional day so we're just being lazy & enjoying the day.

Have a safe evening out there and watch out for all the little ghosts and goblins!

Your pillows are adorable and I hope your kiddos have a great time tonight! We don't get any door to door kids here, most go into town where there are more houses to hit:)
