2 weeks since my last post. Admittedly, it's not as bad as what it was previously, with entire months passing between posts, but still!
Normally Halloween is not a big deal here in Sydney. If we're lucky, we may get a couple of trick-or-treaters come our way. Otherwise, it's a night much like any other. This year, however, Alex's daycare decided to have a Halloween party. We had to dress the kids up for it. So, what could this very slack mother come up with?
I present to you, Alex the wizard:
He actually had a wand too, but we didn't have a good photo of him with it. The hat was from the $2 shop. The robe was home-made out of fabric scraps and the wand was made from cut up strips of cardboard wrapped in aluminum foil.
Not much has been done on the sewing front. I did make a pin cushion for a swap but it was a pretty basic one. It was my first pincushion and I stuffed it as tightly as I could, and even then, I am not sure it was stiff enough.
I packed it with a few little goodies and sent it on its way... and then I discovered that I had left part of the intended package out of the package! Can you say "careless"? So another package is on its way.. oops.
The package I received was nothing short of stunning. The pin cushion was more like a plushie than a pin cushion. I am not sure I want to poke pins into this little cutie.
Thank you, Donna!
