Blogger is playing Halloween tricks early...it says it has posted a photo but surprise!
Here is another go....At the right is a Halloween quilt I made for my sister and her kids out in New Mexico. My niece and nephew have birthdays on either side of Halloween so it is a big holiday for them. Their names are part of the quilting design.
I'm not sure if Halloween will be as big over here as is was in the states. So far only a few pumpkins in the village. Since we are new here I'm not sure if we will get any trick-or-treaters but I laid some candy on just in case...candy I like just in case no-one shows! (I may be eating M&M's and Resse's cups through the New Year!)
I got an email from some quilters who are taking a road trip down to Bath to visit a fabric shop. This may be my first quilt road trip! Today my DH and I went to Bristol. It reminded me a bit of Baltimore but maybe that is only because of the harbor. Some interesting architecture. DH and I travel very differently. I like to read the guidebook, check out the sites on the internet, and have a good map before I head out. This morning I thought we were going out to get the paper and we ended up in Bristol...no map, no plan, soooo lost. It was fun anyway but it would have been nice....
