Hello! I have been out of state for a few days. I just got back home late last night. My favorite Aunt passed away. My mom and dad are in thier 80's. They had decided they wouldn't go. There's no way they could have made the trek themselves. I insisted I take them to the visitation and funeral. I only say favorite because that's the farm we always stayed at when I was younger, alot younger, lol.
So the half a day I had to get ready, I was cleaning and making sure everyone here had clean socks and underwear, lol.
Kellie had to do most of the cookie making, while I popped in and out of the kitchen that day. Here are the results
We also have heart shaped cakes to make, but that will take place later tonite.

I had also finished Spooky before I got the news and luckly finished this finish off

I used that fabby in the background for the backing.

Well, that's it for now.

Happy Stitching!!
