Happy Halloween

Happy Halloween!  We’re waking up to a wet and dark Halloween.  Hopefully it will improve; they say it it will.

Last year trick or treating was during a rainstorm and the temperature was in the 30s (brrr) and very, very few children came around, maybe three.  Really, who could blame them, wet AND cold!  My husband had lots and lots of candy bars to munch on until Christmas;   I’m sure he didn’t mind.

In honor of Halloween I have collected past photos of my girls dressed for the occasion.

Hope you have crisp, fall weather for the trick-or-treaters!  Enjoy the day!  Bye for now.

Still Trying to Get In the Christmas Spirit

It’s really hard to do… in September.  Geez, fall hasn’t even officially started yet!

I finished a Christmas outfit this week and it didn’t help to get me in the Christmas spirit… AT ALL.  It simply seems way too early to be looking at Gina all bundled up in a wool sweater and hat with fuzzy white trim and Christmas/winter motifs.  Yet, I know this is how early I must start to be able to complete LOTS of holiday outfits this year.  Hopefully, it will get easier as we get into fall and fall-like weather.

I confess that I had a bit of a setback yesterday when I got back to work on a fall sweater that was barely started when the Christmas bug set in early last week, so you may see another one or two fall ensembles.  I love the greyish plum, neutral pink, merlot, and ecru/ivory in this print and wanted to continue with the ensemble.

Well, now I must get to work packing up outfits, printing out labels, and working on that fall outfit.  Oh, and I promised to make a pot of soup today, so that we don’t all starve.  Ha ha!

Everyone… have a great Monday!

Last, But Not Least

Last, but not least is this tiny pumpkin patch dress for Amelia Thimble and Izzy.  This one is knit with two shades of yarn—light pumpkin and deep orange.  The light pumpkin border called for embroidery all of the way around the dress, so this last little dress has lots and lots of pumpkins growing in this pumpkin patch.
