or nearly so... that must be why I've got "orange" on my brain! Now what does that to us midwest dwellers? Maybe growing up with changing seasons. So many seasons, both changed and changing, behind me, as I look across the years. My vintage Orange Poppies quilt says it well, time to think "orange", and I am.
Once orange creeps into my brain, it's just a hop and a skip to Halloween. I love October, with September running a hard second. One of my newer friends, Stephanie, at Scraps, has a countdown to Halloween on her blog. I think she's probably Halloween Queen of the Universe. I can hardly wait to see all her decorations this year!
And what would Halloween be without a black cat. I'm all set in that department!! Ebby is black enough and spooky enough to fill the bill.
Baby L is a big boy now, a year later. I'm sure he doesn't remember the past Halloweens. This year, baby brother AJ will be sporting the Tigger costume. Probably L. will be Curious George...LOL, his favorite character. I have a Halloween quilt in the works, still in the flimsy stage, but I DO have time to "hatch" it all the way to "in use" vs. "in production". I have been sewing, and have a completely different top together. It's a "Tale of Two Containers", and when I get it pressed out, I'll show you, better late than never, right???
