Family Life

The cold has hit everyone except for Hubby, he stayed home from work yesterday to take care of all of us. The kids' colds are bad enough I don't know if they will be going trick or treating on Halloween. =(

Family Life

DS and I both have colds and I think DD is getting it too, will find out in the morning I guess. This is putting the brakes on costume sewing.

I went to the Midnight Madness sale at JoAnn today. What a mistake! So much for my fabric diet! LOL I did pretty well on the money spent (1/2 off clearance fabrics) but bought too much yardage.

Here is the damage done:

  • 5yds each of St Patrick'd Day and 4th of July fabric for holiday pillowcases (clearance)
  • 1yd navy alova (40% off) and 1yd light blue costume satin (50% off) for Halloween costume cape and crown
  • The Lazy Girl Designs pattern "Towne Purse" (50% off with coupon) and 7 fat quarters (on sale for 96c ea) to make it
  • 1 panel to make a stuffed turkey (50% off)
  • 1yd of shirting (clearance)
  • 1.5yds print corduroy (clearance)
  • 3 Simplicity patterns, one for me and two for the kids (99c ea)

I also stopped at the local independent on the way home and bought 1.75yds to make chef's hats, from the new Ottobre, for both the kids.

I was looking around the fall issue of and found the Hallowig. I have to make this! It makes me laugh and I can just see going out grocery shopping in it . I think my DD would love to have a couple in her dress-up box.


Last night I finished "The Good Earth". What an amazing book, I wish I had read it long ago. It was an Oprah Book Club book and it was everywhere I looked, so I finally gave in a bought it. I am so glad I did. DH finished the new "Dune" book so I started it. Yes, I have eclectic taste in reading.
