I love the costumes.
Miranda, the moth is such a great idea, and so nicely interpreted. It also looks very warm ? for trick and treating?
JuneBug, there must be some very happy people about to receive these dresses, they are so much like the movie versions.
The faun, Shannonfax, I am in awe. Paper mache hooves! He needs a red scarf though ;) (I just watched the 1st Narnia movie again with my son),

Im playing with a new foot -- sewing machine foot.  Viking came out with a felting foot.  Totally surprised me .  It seems only last year the dealer was saying felting needles created way too much fuzz to be an accessory for our expensive Desiger Gems.  I love playing with new toys.

So many beautiful things I see as I look through the thread!

i have been busy sewing costumes, at the last minute as usual.  Today I sewed a fez for my son, cut out the PDF pattern for my own costume, and finished a dress for DDs costume.  My first dress!  I have serious awe for the gorgeous clothes you all are turning out.  Pics will follow when the costumes are completed.

Good luck on the wallet Artsy! Hopefully those Debbi Shore videos will help you as much as they did me.

I am FINALLY going to sew something for myself. I found this great cotton duck shower curtain at Goodwill with London and Paris motifs. You guys know how much I love to travel!



I was thinking at first about making a jacket but now Im thinking about making a skirt and a peplum top (not to be worn at the same time of course!). I have some left over black pleather from costumes. The peplum top Im thinking about making has a peter pan collar and I think it would be cool to make the collar out of the black pleather.

Can someone help please.  I have posted a photo onto my Forum Profile.  The first one was upside down and the second on its side.  They were both the[/font] right way on my Ipad.  How do I turn it around.

Skye, I'm with you--not crazy about the forward side seam on the Flo pant.  I've already traced an altered pattern with the side seams at the side.  Do like the  fit tho.  Glad they worked for you!

Are you a re-reader?

When I was a librarian (dayum, what a fun job!) one of the many fun discussions was about whether you re-read or whether 'life's too short" to re-read.  I'm a re-reader... but that's maybe because I love character-driven novels.  I like to hang out with these characters (Goblin Emperor is my latest delight).  Lois McMaster Bujold is another... can't find her quote now, but she said she writes character-driven novels because she likes novels about people you want to hang out with.   
But I'm also finding that plot-driven (Agatha Christie fer sure!) are fun just to see how the cunning hand pulls the wool over the eyes.

That said, of course there are fun reads that are once-reads but I don't go back to.   Well, at least not now  ;)
