I can't believe it's already November. Where does the time go? This past month we went to the State Fair, took a trip to the pumpkin patch, hayride and all, drove to a nearby Apple Harvest Festival, took part in our neighborhood Harvest Festival, attended a great party thrown by friends of ours, made costumes, and let the kids collect lots of candy door to door last night. I didn't get the amount of photo's I would have liked. My son wouldn't even put his costume on last night so I'll have to try and dress him in it to capture a photo so I have it for the family photo book. I want to be fully present in each thing we do but my mind is either on to the next thing or thinking about what I could have done better on a previous project. Does anyone else feel the same?
Here are a few highlights from yesterday's festivities:
The baby of the family was "Little Red Riding Hood" and I'm proud to say I made the costume with my own two hands and I love how it turned out. I was inspired by this book. It has great instructions and several more adorable projects. I had to modify the poncho in order to add a hood and I used ribbons instead of a snap as the front closure. These are the first wearables that I've sewn and I'm thrilled with the results. I also plan on sewing some little pants with the leftover fabric using instructions from the same book.
blog. I didn't have a cookie cutter in this shape so I used a pair of kissy lips side by side and then had to press the dough in the center so it would be one entire cookie rather than separates. They were lots of fun to make.
I hope to be posting lots more this harvest season.
