October...It's Fall Ya'll

Welcome to October's BirdHouse Quilt Block of the Month!
Are you wonderin why I'm starting a Block of the Month in October?
Hang Around Ya'll....That parts coming!
Let's Talk Punkins!

One day I found two pumpkin seeds.
I planted one and pulled the weeds.
It sprouted roots and a big long vine.
A pumpkin grew; I called it mine.
The pumpkin was quite round and fat.
(I am really quite proud of that)
But there is something, I'll admit
That has me worried just a bit.
I ate the other seed you see.
Now will it grow inside of me?

October is the tenth month of the year in the Gregorian Calendar and one of seven months with 31 days.

Octobers Flower is the Calendula or more commonly known as the Marigold.

Octobers Birthstone is the Opal. The Opal is thought to have the power to predict illness because it responds to heat or more precisely body temperature in the form of fever.

October is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month
Celebrating 25 Years of Awareness, Education, and Empowerment!

As promised....The Block of the Month Saga...It's like this...I always wanted to do a Themed Block of the Month.
So I joined 'The BirdHouse BOM' in September 2005.
It was suppose to be a SIMPLE Birdhouse Block with just the Gourd hanging from the tree branch...
that's it...that's all.
As you can see, OverDoSue, struck again in the October BOM...and again in
November, December and January.
What about February, March,April, May,
June, July, August, and September?
Oh! They are on my list of 'ToDo's for 2010'.

PS...About the SecondSeed...I'm so relieved since I found...that Pumpkin Seeds only grow in the ground.


  1. Hi Sue!
    Yes, I did miss you! I wondered where you skipped off to!
    I love the BOM! Very detailed and very cute!
    October is such a happy month, isn't it? Cider and caramel apples . . . delish!
    How's that baby?

  2. Cute! I can't wait to see the next BOM. (I'm also relieved to know punkins only grow in the ground!)
