Pumpkins, Monsters, Ghosts and Bats....oh, my!

I have not done any stitching all week!  Yikes, that is really scary isn't it?  I have been training a gal for the old
job with the speakerphone and a virtual desk top.  It is going great and she is going to be a great asset to the team!  Yippee! 

In addition to that, I have also been having fun!  The Kent District Library has a Team of gals that do "fun" recognition things for all the staff members in the system.  I helped with the Halloween Project for this year. Over 300 cookies were baked and then frosted, bagged and tagged with one for each of the employees, with a special decorated tag:

Pumpkins, ghosts, tombstones, Frankenstein, skulls, candy corn, bats and witches were bathed in butter cream frosting and duly decorated with more frosting, sprinkles, sugar and eyes!  After labeling each bagged cookie with the employee name, they were boxed up by branch and delivered along with one of these:
Yes, 19 huge glass bowls were filled with over 1800 pieces of candy!   The candy was purchased, mixed, and filled four cardboard paper sized boxes before being transferred into the bowls. Each branch will get one of the bowls for the staff along with the cookies!  The team finished loading all of this into the cars and set off to deliver them around ten this morning.  I am sure they were duly appreciated upon their arrival at the branches!

It has been a busy week for me, but it has been a lot of fun!  Thanks, Team KDL, for asking me to help!  You are a wondrous group of people!

Couldn't agree more, love the staff at Cascade library. My girls love the story time and how welcoming everyone is.

That is a great idea. Our local library is always planning fun things for the patrons, both young and old. Have to think of a creative way to thank them for all they do for us.
Hope you get some stitching time this weekend.
