I have managed to spend a little time at the sewing machine this week.
of retail therapy.
At school this term Flo’s topic has been Ancient Egypt and the children were all told they could come in to school today dressed as Egyptians.
The generosity and kindness of blog-land landed on my doorstep this morning!
We had a great Halloween, small person had a party to attend in the afternoon and then she went trick or treating with OH for a little while when she got home.
Lots of sewing machine activity today, the requested cat costume became a witch costume.
Small person decided that she didn’t want to wear the cat mask – she has never really liked wearing masks in dress-up, doesn’t even like having her face painted so I was surprised when she asked for the cat mask and tail.
I agreed to the costume change as it was at least requested before I started making the cat costume but after I had bought the material. I had a rummage in the stash and found some nice dark purple material of the same type as the black and so worked out that I would have enough fabric to make the new costume. Also one of the witches hats we have is black with a purple band so it will go fine with that.
Didn’t quite get it finished as also had to clean up the house as we have visitors coming tomorrow,
Blogging is more of a challenge in the school holidays so apologies for a rather dull post.
Autumn is the time for soup and homemade bread.
