    The heat out there lately has made me yearn for cooler weather and put my thoughts to Halloween. I did an early Halloween round up and included a link to your pattern. Thank you so much for sharing your craft! I look forward to making one of these for myself this year. I’d love to make them as gifts too, but finding the time with three boys is just a little difficult. Hehe.
