I just finished making the first blocks for a block of the month project through a local quilt store. It is a great deal. You pay $5.50 for the fabric to make your first set of blocks and then if you show up monthly with your blocks made, you get the next month's fabric free. This year's theme is the Oregon Trail. For any who don't already know, this was the main pathway west before the railroads were built. The store owners give a little history lesson and then a monthly block. This month's blocks are called "Hole in the Dugout". The dugout refers to early homes built on the plains. The homes were actually dug into the side of a hill and then sod was used to construct the rest of the walls. Sound's rather uncomfortable! Here are my blocks.
Now to the witch part...My sister, my niece and I went to a nearby shopping area that is rather unique. It is an old grain mill surrounded by small historical homes. The mill is converted into a restaurant and furniture/gift shop. The surrounding homes are small shops. Every October they have a large Halloween witch display. Here are a few that we especially enjoyed.
This next witch apparently is not a careful flier!
