Happy October

October....my favorite month!! 


I love the fall, and October is the month 
that it seems to be 
in full swing...
the trees changing colors, leaves falling, 
the days shorter, 
it's back to school, family dinners, pumpkins, 
and it's my birthday month!! 

As a kid it seemed to me that going trick or treating was
an extension to my birthday.
 I was born on October 27th and loved that we all had costumes 
picked and were just waiting for the 
anticipation to go door to door and get candy!! 

The worst thing was the PLASTIC masks we wore with the 
elastic string around the back of you head
 pulling at your hair
 and the sweat building up between
 your face and the mask!! 

Such memories.... 


One of my favorite memories is of my mom making those 
yummy, warm, colorful,sticky popcorn balls
 wrapped in wax paper!! 


Today starts the first of several days of the Hall-o-ween Blog Hop
Stacy loves Halloween and has some fun treats for you!!! 


FYI...I love Candy Corn!!!
 I know you either love it or hate it!! 
One time my grandmother bought me a whole brown
 grocery bag full of candy corn and left it on
 my front porch for me!!
 Don't you just love grandma's!!
 I know I love being one!!  

This year the kids have their costumes all picked out!!
Addison is going to be a COWGIRL
Hailey is going to be a TOY SOLDIER
Emma is going to be ELSA
Olivia is going to be a DOCTOR
Lincoln is going to be a PIRATE
and Hazel is going to be a PUMPKIN

Here is a sneak peak at Hailey....I ended up making a Toy Soldier jacket for her....
It's going to be fun!!! 


When we got married in 1976
 one of our favorite movies was Young Frankenstein! 
I can't even say how many times we watched
 it but if you have time watch it this October....


So if you made it through all that....
like they say....good things come to those who wait....
My October Blog Hop Project I have to share with you
 is this cute little Frankenstein neck pocket.
These are fun and fast to stitch up so you can still make 
them before Halloween gets here!!

Oh...and don't forget to tuck a treat inside!!!

Happy Halloween to all of you!!
BOO!!

I remember when we had two nights of Halloween before people began to put nasty little things inside candy. We always went to one ladies house first to be sure we got her popcorn balls! Thank you for the Frankie pattern. I have a pattern for a lovely bat and I was going to make a bunting from them. Now, thanks to you, I want to make a Frankie and I'll look for a similar easy looking Dracula and a mummy shouldn't be hard. See, you have inspired me to make a classic monster movies bunting. Now to find the time.

Thank you very much, Debbie. I loved reading about your Halloween. I remember those masks, too, and the popcorn balls. My grandma used to make pull taffy as well. Hope you get some good candy corn this year.

So cute! Thank you for sharing this pattern. I no longer have little children but I think this would b a great neck piece for wearing to an October quilting retreat! With a little emergency snack - or money if there's a vendor nearby - tucked in.
