Happy Halloween and Happy Birthday Shelbie

35 comments
It's Halloween! I hope everyone has sent off their Christmas Cottage blocks. Our participants are awaiting delivery of the blocks to their homes and I am anxious to get started on my quilt. Today I ordered some Michael Miller Christmas tree fabric to incorporate into the quilt.

Isn't this plate cute. This was a gift from my friend Flora.

Twenty-five years ago I had a baby on Halloween. She was our little pumpkin. Happy Birthday Shelbie.

Shelbie is a multi-talented girl with a great ability to do just about everything. She is the knitter in the family and has made everyone great things to wear with her talent. She's an engineer and lives and works close enough that we are able to see her often.

She made this dress too. I really can't think of anything she can't do! Have a happy day Shelbie.

And Happy Halloween to everyone. This is a cropped pic of me when I was about 15 in a costume my mom Freda made. Ah those were the days!

Ok, now I've got to go now find some pumpkin peeps. - nanette

You certainly were busy in October year after year, weren't you? :-D

Since I've been blogging in February, I have ALWAYS enjoyed and looked forward to Shelbie's knitted things. She is one talented girl. And didn't she even hand-quilt something for you?

Happy Birthday Dear Shelbie!

I bet you were a real lion at 15! Be sure to leave those peeps open for a few days before you eat them! Shelbie is cute! My brother's birthday is today also. He is turning 53, he so great, lives in Utah. Looking at his life, there is much irony to his being born on Halloween!!!:)
