Happy Halloween!

While the kiddos are enjoying this delightful evening dressed as little ghouls, witches and monsters, 
I am going to share the happenings of our 
Tudor Rose Sampler Guild meeting 
at the beginning of October. 

First, we exchanged Halloween Ornaments for our second ornament exchange.  Although not as many ornaments were created this year, those that were exchanged were very lovely.  Check them out.
