Happy Halloween

Ok, so the day is just about over. I really tried to get on here earlier, but no go. I've been fighting a cold, and I'm feeling a little better each day. Woke up a little after 4:00 this morning coughing and decided to go down stairs so not to wake anyone up. I hooked some more in the morning on my rug and then just finished it up this evening. Well, not the whole thing. But my new goal was to finish the entire center by today. Did it! I had some other things that needed to get done today that kept me from being on here, but was well worth it. Took my hubby to lunch. Now "technically" I was still celebrating my birthday since I used a gift certificate that my son gave me on that day LOL. Ok, I'm stretching it a bit. But it was nice to get some fresh air and we had a good meal. The rest of the afternoon was grocery shopping. That is a job in itself. Not my favorite thing to do, but now I don't have to do it over the weekend.

We had our trick or treaters last night and there were many. I was a little concerned that we would run out of candy. They were coming in huge waves, but we had enough. My daughter Nicole held the basket and let each child pick what candy bar they wanted. At the end, we realize the Nestle Crunch is not a popular one. That's what we had left. Funny how I was just saying the other day that I felt they didn't taste the same as they used to. Perhaps the kids agree. Will know better for next year!
So here's my rug ......

I just got done pressing it a little bit ago, so that is why it is wet on the edges of the linen. I will need to dye the border color yet. Hopefully by next week sometime. This would be great if I could get it done by Thanksgiving, but I'm not promising anything. Will keep updating it as I go along. Thanks for letting me share it with you.
I hope everyone had a great Halloween!!!!
