getting excited about October

Every year, I promise myself that we're going to make the most of October. I'm going to start some of those Halloween quilts I've got planned and we're going to carve pumpkins, and visit the pumpkin patch, and bake yummy things... and before I know it, it's Christmas and we've skipped half of the things I had wanted to do.

I'm going to do better this year. We've already baked our first pumpkin recipe --

According to the kids, they were oily and "not as thick as the ones on the box." I don't think I'd make these again. But that's one of the great things about having four kids -- whatever we bake is gone in the blink of an eye and I've got an excuse to make something else.

We had a fun ghost hunt the other night...and that's just the very beginning of what's going on this month.

The Leafs Me Happy blog hop kicks off on October 1. I'll be showing off my own block on the 2nd.

Ebony's Big Little Book of Fabric Die Cutting Tips comes out at the end of the month. I'll have a copy to give away to one of my readers.

I should be able to show off the Nancy Drew quilt soon -- there's a fun giveaway to go with that, too!

No baking at this house. Both my boys have allergies and I'd have to eat it all. Can't be doing that too often. Coming from a family of 10, my mom said it wasn't worth baking anything. She'd slave all afternoon making something and when we got home from school, it would be gone in no time. No seconds here!

Celebrating Halloween is such fun - hope you get to those quilts you are wanting to make. Your plans for October sound like a lot of fun.
