This is a pattern I had been wanting to try for a while. I just love the sleeve detail. It should have been an easy/quick project, but I had a hard time getting the tension right on my serger after Quinn played with the dials, and that resulted in lots of picking of the stitches and resewing.

This year I told the kids that they have to come up with their own costumes. After all, our costume box is well stocked, and I didn't want to use my precious sewing time for something I will see once a year. They didn't mind at all, and we had a happy Halloween.
Aunt Trisha brought these cute, and yummy, cup cakes.
This was taken after Trunk-or-Treat. Quinn threw up shortly after this... on me and my kimono. Scott's sister, Karine, reminded me later not to pick up a whiney kid on Halloween. I need to remember that.
I got to host Kai's pre-school party.

I am finally back on my own computer. While my hard drive was being replaced and the OS upgraded, I had more time to create instead of admiring creations of others.
This is the closest to the true color.
