Happy Halloween

I know I haven’t blogged in quite a while.  I have been crafting a bit, just not taking the time to blog.  Rick and I went to Disneyland for Mickey’s Halloween Party last week.  We had a great time.  I made the costumes.  I want to get some better close up photos to show more detail.  The ones we took were blurry, so need to be redone.  I wanted to post today, so the details will have to wait.  My bodice is from a 1990’s cocktail ensemble, the skirt is from a simplicity pattern.  I used the sleeve pattern as the cape.  I had fun figuring out how to sew with lace and organza, the inexpensive stuff on sale for Halloween at JoAnn’s.  Rick’s vest is cut from a Vogue pattern and made in Cotton Twill.  Not the best choice, worsted wool would have been easier to sew.  He wanted something cooler than wool so I gave it a try.  

I am doing much better managing my time and health.  This change is taking more time than I imagined.
