In Central CA, it’s not uncommon for October and November to stride by without so much as a hint of fall – you know, cloudy days, rain, cold…? It’s been known to be 75 degrees and sunny on Thanksgiving! But my facebook feed was full of local friends gleefully welcoming the storm we had Friday night and the rain it brought with it. In our Valley, rain is desperately needed, not only to clear the air but to alleviate, even minutely, the drought we’re in. Thankfully the storm held off until trick-or-treating was done and we were all home in bed!
I know I showed you my daughter’s Super Girl Costume last time, but I was able to snap a few pictures of the two of us together as well as an updated picture of my husband in his home-sewn Anakin costume!
We went to a party at a friend’s house and had a great time. Miss E convinced me to don my cowgirl boots with my costume too – she wanted to match. Even without the vinyl boot covers and cuffs, I think everyone knew we were super girls. 🙂 And the kids were already wearing their costumes the next day and the day after, so we will get a lot of play out of these before they grow out of them. (For details on the Super Girl costumes, click here). A big thanks to F&M Fabrics for their great selection of Satin and Tulle!
The boys chose a Star Wars theme. Mr. T really wanted to be a Clone Trooper so my husband defaulted to his Anakin costume I made years ago before we had kids. There are details on the Anakin costume in my guest post at the Star Wars Wife blog!
We had a great time and hope you did too!
Currently I’m working on some quilts I hope to show you in the next few weeks. One I have finished, and the other is in progress – just finished 4 rows yesterday!
After that I have some projects to finish for a few blog tours the end of November/beginning of December and a few things I’ve been wanting to sew for me, if I can fit them in. The holidays are upon us and this cool weather is just what I need to get me in the mood for some holiday sewing.
What are you working on?!
