Halloween Greetings from

our town of Mendon, USA
to Kandahar, Afghanistan.

My friend Susan's husband is stationed in Afghanistan and through her, my son adopted one of the soldiers under his command.
While corresponding, my son learned his American soldier, pen pal - likes Halloween.
This Halloween wall hanging will be sent to him this week.

A very thin silk batting and 100 wt., light thread was used for most of the piecing and quilting.  Doing this, really kept the bulk down of the wall-hanging.  We need it to be thin and light so we can send other essentials, along with this, in our care package.

We gave the skeleton a little heart, that way our American friends will be reminded we are thinking of them.

He has a few pumpkins. . .

. . . . and he holds a banner.

 October will be here next week already!  
 Enjoy your Halloween projects.
