This has also been a great time to work on hand appliqueing the bats for my Baltimore Halloween quilt. Back in May, I finally had the top put together and started adding the bats that go around the border.

In other creepy crawly related news, we've been seeing some of the most unusual and largest spiders this year. The front of our house is covered in ivy and for some reason all of the spiders are trying to build their webs in it. It's giving me a bit of the heebie jeebies! (I'm not very fond of spiders.)
|This spider was large with bright yellow markings.|
|Can you see the spider in this tunnel?|
I hope you're having a blessed week! Until later...
But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ’s power may rest on me.
2 Corinthians 12:9 (NIV)
