Happy Halloween {and a Giveaway Winner} : :

Happy Halloween everyone!

Unfortunately, two of my three kiddos (yes, my little red) are home sick today. Boo! We're about to head out to the Dr.'s and are all hoping to feel well enough tonight to make it around the neighborhood.

My "boo" hoop above was inspired by So Sarah Sews and Gwenny Penny, and my stack of fabrics and appliques below that were to be our Halloween bunting....Well, that just never happened. Instead, I spent this weekend's sewing time working on Christmas crafts! Yes, yes! And I'll have lots to share in the upcoming weeks ahead. I am planning a very handmade Christmas this year! How about you, are you ready for all the Christmas making yet?

Despite the running noses, sneezing, and coughing we had a good weekend.

I hope you did too!
