To The Moon and Back - A Pumpkin Party

We have a full moon on October let's go to the Moon and Back and have a Pumpkin Party with a paper piecing kit I used to decorate the table this year. Mr. and Mrs. Skellie are happy to join us so we can have a party of four.
Advice from a PUMPKIN....
Be well-rounded.
Get plenty of sunshine.
Give thanks for life's bounty.
Have a thick skin.
Keep growing.
Be outstanding in your field.
Thing big! -- Ilan Shamir
Some of you will remember that my mom made Halloween very special for her family, friends and neighbors. Everyone went to "Joyce's" house each Halloween to socialize and admire the pumpkins she carved. 

This was a "dry run" for the Halloween party I will be hosting next October. Better to play it safe this year.  Have A Safe and Happy Halloween my lovelies!
