>Ah… Halloween weekend. I love this weekend. Pumpkin flavored things (I’ll be baking a pumpkin pie right after this blog post), kids excited about trick or treating, decorations. I love it. I especially love pumpkins!
There has actually been some sewing! I picked up the coat again and have started my padstitching. If I want to get it on the way I need to stop procrastinating about it! It’s rather sloppy as I was doing it at night while drugged up on Nyquil (thus the variations on size… lol), but it’s getting there. Since I don’t have a set roll line I’m not too worried about it.
And my doll has a dress for Halloweenie. I figured that just cause I’m lame and not doing anything didn’t mean I couldn’t have *some* element of fancy dress. This time she’s wearing it instead of me… but I want one my size. The sequins were neat left over trims of sequins and beads on netting that were salvaged from something really old by the original owner. I found them at the estate of a circus performer who sewed her own clothes. It’s one of those places you wish you could go back and have a re-do- she had boxes of patterns she drafted herself and at the time I passed them up but I wish I could go back and rescue them now! One of her amazing dresses is now at the home of one of my best friends… a stunning champagne formal satin dress. Yummy! In any case- even though there wasn’t enough sequins to make something big for me, there was enough to use for the doll. And she got the leftover feather trim I had in the stash, too! My husband has officially christened this “The Rocket Chicken Dress.” Isn’t he a darling? Hehe.
Guess that’s all the news here. Hope you’re all having a fun weekend!
