With my Candy Corn-peanut mix in hand and plenty of fresh cider, my evenings are spent fast at work stuffing and sewing as I watch any show on TV that will satisfy this girl's love for Halloween. Even as I stuff Jake the turkey, my mind is still on Pumpkin headed people and witches of all sorts. My pattern customers are just as reluctant, it seems. In a sea of Santa and turkey orders, there are still almost as many Halloween patterns to be shipped as I speak. The orders are stacked and envelopes await for morning.
It is always a bit sad to see the last of the beautiful colored leaves fall from the trees. Each season holds it's own magic, but for me, the one who dislikes shoes.... I can't wait for leaves to come in and socks to go out. As I get ready to pack away those sandals and cover my toes, I will be fast at work as this is my busiest sewing time. Patiently I wait, not just for the Great Pumpkin and all goode things Halloween, but for the shows and Holidays ahead and then finally for green grass to wriggle my toes in, once again.
