Halloween is a favorite holiday of mine....so many good memories. When I was a child, my mother would make the family a nice dinner before we set out to trick or treat. She would wrap coins in tin foil and put them in the mashed potatoes. It was probably not the safest things to do but we thought it was great and we are still here to tell of it. It seems like we went to hundreds of houses and got countless full size candy bars. No wonder I had so many cavities!
He continued to be a good sport when I would take the kids out trick or treating and leave him home to answer the door dressed up in my flannel nightgown, the kids' pink wig and a pig nose and glasses. (He looks a little hot, don't you think?)
This all leads to why I couldn't resist this quilt pattern, found at the Cary Quilt Company. I made this wall hanging for both my sister and I, leaving out the "Sometimes" on my sisters version for obvious reasons.... I always miss my sister, and wish that we lived closer so that I could see her more often, and share stories of the Halloweens of our youth in Lowell MA.
