I am writing this late Saturday night, technically early Sunday morning.
I am still "juiced" from watching the #1 University of Oregon Ducks Football team beat the University of Southern California Trojans in Los Angeles!
For my overseas readers, it is much like following your local soccer team - faithfully - for years - only to find that suddenly they are now better than say, Manchester United!
Anyway in celebration of a truly "spook-tacular" win I bring you...

I should mention that the funky pumpkin smile was created using DMC "Memory Thread". I also used it on "Punkin Crow". I found it at my local Michael's Craft Store.
Just two more weeks of outdoor Farmers' Market - then they move inside for the holiday season. It was much quieter this Saturday - fewer vendors and customers. I had to make-do with just a pain au chocolate for breakfast.
Oh, how I suffer!
I thought this variety of pumpkin charming!
And I loved all the colors of the Japanese Maples for sale.
As a Halloween bonus, I leave you with stitch from my "Cross Stitch Archives".
