Halloween was a complete wash-out with strong winds and heavy rain. Not one trick-or-treater showed up and I don't blame them! But today, the first of November, was sunny and mild but windy still. Matthew and Bella, my young friends, showed up with their kids to visit and to show me their wonderful costumes.

Bella brought me a wonderfully decorated Halloween brownie, too! Yummy with my vanilla cappuccino coffee.

I did go to the Golden Gese quilt shop for Friday quilting and was very impressed with Maureen's newest quilt!

She was attaching the binding of a lovely red floral and then was able to spread it out for a better picture.

Nice work, Maureen! Maureen also worked a little bit on her table runner with matching placemats in all bright strips. So pretty!

My work was on assembling some pieces for a set of two matching potholders for Ilse to send to Germany for Christmas presents.

These two are my favorite Sawtooth Star pattern and will be quilted with Insulbrite and a layer of regular batting.

On Tuesday, I enjoyed giving out some extra fabrics to the gals at the Senior Center and taking pictures of their neat projects.

And, as always, the Senior Center's Tuesday breakfast was delicious! This was a fried egg on half an English muffin, topped with sausage bits in gravy. yummy!

Hash browns, cantaloupe and yogurt made it a meal to remember.

As the days get shorter and fall winds blow, I hope that you are warm and well and enjoying your quilting!

Happy quilting!

You had some cute visitors post-Halloween. I didn't realize Matthew and Bella had such a cute family of kids.
Some lovely projects at the Golden Gese--I really like your lovely stars.
Looks like a breakfast worth getting out to enjoy. :)

I don't blame the trick or treaters for staying home! We were supposed to get rain but we didn't so they were out but I don't get too many. I love your potholders.....the fabric you chose is very pretty. I've been spending time 'window shopping' online at my favorite quilt shops! LOL! We don't have any here where I live. Have a good week!

Those stars are beautiful! In the south we went from temps in the 90's the first of Oct to the mid 20's the last of Oct. Mother Nature seemed to have overlooked fall.

Happy trick or treaters! We had the snowiest Hallowween in Chicagoland history. Nice to see what your friends at the Golden Gese are up to.
