Can you believe it? The last day of October, already!! October 31 marks the end of pumpkin month, but more importantly, it's All Hallow's Eve . . . and even MORE importantly, it's the birthday of one June Madelyn!!
Today she celebrated the big THREE!! Sweet baby girl. We had a fun time celebrating her birthday this morning!
I love those last two with the girls and their babies in the strollers. Aren't they precious?!?
My stash report again remains unchanged . . .
Zippo in and zappo out! Week 44 . . . that means there are only EIGHT weeks to 2016. What in the world?!?
But that doesn't mean I haven't been busy! I have one more pumpkin project up my sleeve. A sweet little embroidery project I found on Martha Pullen's website. She shares full blown instructions for creating a darling, lace-trimmed hand towel with a pumpkin stitchery . . .

Darling, non? Of course, I wanted to use materials I had on hand, and that included neither the appropriate towel or lace. So I settled for a pretty, autumn colored striped towel. First thing I did was get the pumpkin template transfered to my towel:
For this project, I used my Aunt Martha's red transfer pencil and traced the template. A quick press with a hot iron and my design is boo-yoootiful!
I haven't finished this one, but I'm thinking this will make a nice little hostess gift for Thanksgiving dinner (which is being hosted by Jocelyn).
After all, pumpkins work nicely through the end of November, right?!? Plus, this will make for a fun day's slow stitching!
Okay, so that's it for me. If you're still up, don't forget you've got an extra hour to stitch tomorrow . . .
Daylight savings time ends at 2:oo a.m.!!
Linking up to Patchwork Times and Kathy's Quilts. Adios October! Greetings, November!! Happy Sunday!!!
