Wishing you a Happpy Halloween!!!

This is the Tic~tac~toe quilt I made with matching fabrics for Matilda the Witch (see previous post). My mother took a photo of the quilt to show you. It was a quick and simple quilt to make and just good fun to sit out at this time of year. The little fabric pumpkins are the O's and the crossed cinnamon sticks are the X's. I have always intended to make one for myself but "the best laid plans....."

I want to take this moment to wish you all a very Happy Halloween! Whether you celebrate it by dressing up or simply light a Jack o' Lantern, enjoy today and celebrate the rich and wonderful colors of the season!

Walk Into My Parlor
~~ Mary Howitt ~~

"Will you walk into my parlor?"
said the spider to the fly;
"Tis the prettiest little parlor that you ever did spy.
The way into my parlor is up a winding stair,
And I have many curious things to show when you are there."
"Oh no, no!" said the little fly,
"to ask me is in vain;
For who goes up your winding stair
can never come down again."
