I am slowly getting in the mood for the season!


Two days ago was National Boss Day.  To celebrate, my coworkers and I decided to do something special for the boss. We filled his office up with pumpkins.  A full pickup truck full.


My boss is a pretty cool guy and has a great sense of humor.  A couple years back we filled his office up with packing peanuts to the 3 foot level.  A few years before that we Shrink wrapped his entire office with a full roll of industrial packing wrap.  Needless to say, we try to keep things fun at work.  And some times the boss just sits and shakes his head and wonders what we have planned next.


Since I was all in a Pumpkin Mood, I brought 5 large ones home with me, so expect to see them carved some where down the road.  I decided it was about time I finished this Halloween decoration.  Its hard to tell how big it is, but its pretty decent size I think it was one yard by width of fabric.  My son James is scoping out the house trying to decide where to hang it and has pointed out the large front window would be perfect for it.  This was a one yard cut and all I did is some simple quilting around boxes and the strings from the spider I sewed down them too.  I circled all the ghosts and witches and all the purple boxes.  I would guess over the next few years each time I pull it out, I will sew it just a little more until its quilted more fully.

That's a great Halloween prank!! Then everyone can go home with a pumpkin to clean up. Love it. I have never seen that panel before - so cute

Post It note wall paper. It worked well for hubby's boss. They also brought in a kiddy pool and pool toys one year, while he worked from home trying to get his pool dug (all sorts of problems with that pool). We contributed a hula dancing flamingo. Funny!

How funny are all those pumpkins! Your Halloween quilt looks fantastic. I haven't made any Halloween quilts as we don't celebrate Halloween here in Australia.

Love the quilt decoration. Good one for a fast Halloween mood. Your boss will have pumpkin pie for a long time to come if his wife cans! That's pretty funny. Do you always do it at Halloween?
