Halloween 2010

Happy Halloween friends! Here's my mantle all decorated up for the occasion. :) It looks better in the dark, but dark isn't the best for taking photos. I'd heard a rumor that there would be kids trick-or-treating yesterday instead of today. That rumor was correct. After about 100 trick-or-treaters, all by 7:30, we were out of candy. I've never run out of candy on Halloween ever. Never ever. Here we are the day BEFORE Halloween and I'm out. We ended up raiding the pantry and found a value pack of individual serving potato chips. Those last few kids that came to the door after we turned off the porch light got chips...and they were actually excited about it. lmao. So, we went out and bought more candy this morning. It's now 7:30 on Halloween and we haven't had one, not ONE, trick-or-treater. Now we're gonna have left over candy. Grrrrr...

Today I quilted up my Mod Bento Box II quilt top. Since I both work and go to rehearsal tomorrow the binding will have to wait until Tuesday. I'm excited to have this full sized "napping" quilt completed. :)

Last weekend the New Orleans Modern Quilt Guild had a retreat weekend. I love this group! We're all crazy and everyone is extremely talented. It's a great great group. (Sorry Lana for not getting you in this shot.) We spent the weekend laughing, eating, watching Glee, sewing, and not sleeping. lmao. I understand we're already talking about our next retreat. :)
