October gave a party;
The leaves by hundreds came
-The Chestnuts, Oaks, and Maples,
And leaves of every name.
The Sunshine spread a carpet,
And everything was grand,
Miss Weather led the dancing,
Professor Wind the band.
For those of you that follow my blog know how much I LOVE Halloween and giveaways!!! So during the month of October I will be having a weekly giveaway. So you will need to stay tuned if you wanna play!!
The first giveaway will be for the new Blackbird Designs pattern "Midnight Watch" and of course all the threads and the fabric, too. The winner will get to choose what count of cloth they want and also if they want linen or aida. Sound fun????
Ok, now for the catch, you will need to leave a comment on this post for one entry and tell me what your favorite candy is or what you will be handing out this year for "Trick or Treat". If you are a follower and or sign up to be a follower you will get a second entry, but you will need to mention this in a second post telling me so. And if you would like a third entry, post this giveaway on your blog and let me know that you have done so in a third post. Sound easy enough?? Your entries can be placed until the end of day on October 7th, 2009. I will then post the lucky winner on October 8th, 2009.
It has been raining or hailing here all day and feels more like winter instead of fall. I have been very busy at work this week as I missed all of last week with this stupid flu that has started to go around. Not good!!! I would rather be at work anytime!!! So now I am playing catch up and it's going slow, which means I haven't been able to do any stitching recently. I have put my Sail Away on hold for a while. I just can't seem to work on something that is not fall or Halloween related during October. But, I will finish it soon, before end of year 2009, I promise all my sailor friends!! I have not jumped off the boat for long.
I have tried my hand at designing a Halloween pattern and I am needing to get it stitched quickly along with a crickety old skeleton. I love skeletons as long as they are in good taste and primitive looking. Maybe if I can pick up speed on my office work I can get home in time and hopefully have some energy left in me to pick up that needle and thread. Wish me luck! I look forward to your comments and good luck on the giveaway!! They will continue to get better!! Have a wonderful day in every way!
