October's IT!


I enjoyed working on October's Interpret This! challenge (read more here). I believe that all the reveals have been posted and, once again, some wonderful quilts from talented women at Interpret This!

I need to remember to get to the store and pick up some Halloween candy for the half a dozen kids the brave the hill and stairs up to our front door. In the meantime, I spent the last half hour listening the Robert Burns' Halloween -- here --- below the first two stanzas:



Halloween by Robert Burns

Upon that night, when fairies light
On Cassilis Downans dance,
Or owre the lays, in splendid blaze,
On sprightly coursers prance;
Or for Colean the route is ta'en,
Beneath the moon's pale beams;
There, up the cove, to stray and rove,
Among the rocks and streams
To sport that night.

Among the bonny winding banks,
Where Doon rins, wimplin' clear,
Where Bruce ance ruled the martial ranks,
And shook his Carrick spear,
Some merry, friendly, country-folks,
Together did convene,
To burn their nits, and pou their stocks,
And haud their Halloween
Fu' blithe that night.
