Last Minute Halloween Costume

Halloween is less then 24 hours away and I realized I didn't have a costume yet. I pulled out the costume bin and dug through it. I found this vintage 50's sweater and pink slip. But no poodle skirt. I figured I could whip something up. I found a free poodle pattern at this site. But when I printed it out it was tiny so I ended up having to free hand it. I used a work skirt much to my son's concern. He kept asking me if people would know it was a work skirt. I also had to explain to a 5 year old why I would pin a dog to my skirt. It was a fun conversation.
Some rinse stones and silver ribbon and it was complete. Not an authentic poodle skirt but it will do. I will wear white sneakers with white socks and put my hair in a pony tail. The kids may not get it but I hope the adults will find it cute. Happy trick or treating.

Sewing Maching is Sick

My barely six months old sewing machine is in the shop. Poor thing. I am lost with out it. Stay tuned for more postings next month. I was in the middle of two projects when it pooped out on me.

Witches Brew

These scarry snacks are so cute and fun to eat. I saw the recipe in a cooking magazine. Just take yogurt cups, draw faces, and add green food coloring. Top with licorice, a cookie, and the ice cream cones. Then eat. I couldn't find black licorice so settle for some green sour strips that I cut to size. Happy eating.

Cricut Fun

I turned around and it was October already. My last post was the middle of September. This time of year is so busy. Soccer, piano, back to school night, Halloween. So much fun. The house is decorated, the costumes are bought, and the pumpkins are at the patch. I love this time of year. I finished a great holiday quilt project but I can't show photos as it is a gift. tay tunred for that one. Tomorrow the kids have school but I am off. I repeat I am off. So I plan to shop and shop, and go to Joann's. I can't wait.

Today we had fun making cricut people. The boys were really patient waiting for there items to cut. And they glued them on by themselves.
