Happy Halloween

While we were out of state, I made some halloween trick or treat pumpkin bags for the kids. Not too big, not too small, but just right. Here we are in our costumes I frantically made after returning to San Diego (while dealing with a cough & cold and no sleep). DH is a leopard, #2 is a lamb, #1is a lion, and I'm a snake. I like trying to do family costumes because it is fun and presents an interesting challenge. I'll post the answer to our family costume theme tomorrow, but feel free to guess how we might all be related. I'll give you a hint: each of us has a buddy. Leopard-goat, lion-calf, lamb-wolf, snake-baby.


The other thing I started working on last week is a bag to felt. So many crafty people in our Fiber Therapy group have been making felted bags recently, I've gotten excited and want to try one out myself. I had been thinking about the design for awhile, and was excited to buy the yarn at a yarn shop while on the trip. I think that it is big enough to stitch together and then try felting. Here is the pic of the flat fabric. I know it will shrink upon felting, but we'll see how it goes. Maybe this will be a project for the weekend...

This week, I have begun making 8" squares for the SD Wild Fire blanket project. I know we'll be busy sewing the squares together on Saturday.

How cute are the four of you!! You are obviously great at sewing as you are with a crochet hook. I hope all is well. See you soon.
