I put the final border on my "Faithful" quilt top, but I plan to add corners so it can be set on point.  Lori has "Quilt-A-Longs" at least once or twice a year and I have participated as often as I can.  This one was fun and not too hard as I had lots of extra HSTs laying around.  Go to her blog to see the other participants.

Since I made my costume dress, I decided to wear it for the trick or treaters last night.  Here's a picture of me holding the "flag" I made.  Do you think I look like Betsy Ross?  I asked the trick or treaters who I was and some of them came close with the answer of "someone who made the first American flag."

Actually, not many kids came to the house last night compared to other years.  (BTW, the quilt I'm holding is one that Lori had posted on her blog and I just HAD to make it.  It wasn't a QAL, but it is now one of my favorite quilts.

Wow!  It's November today!
