This was one of the costumes that I made

Family Halloween picture (I made the vest and skirt of my costume also)
I am participating in my first apron swap. I can't wait! I thought that after this rush on Halloween costumes, I wasn't willing to sew much more right now, but after I finished the costumes and all was good, I am ready to sew again! I am joining in at http://flirtyapronswap.blogspot.com . I am looking forward to getting an apron also. I am trying to do more cooking and my nana always used to stay to always wear an apron. I will certainly wear one now after I get my first swap and then I will try to make my own aprons too! There is also a contest sponsored by http://www.etsy.com/shop/silverliningdesigns6 where a beautiful snowflake is being raffled to those participating in the swap.
I will be working on a few other projects too. Hopefully some X-mas gifts will get done so that I can feel good about giving handmade things for the holidays. I have a wine bottle sack on the needles and I am going to make a couple of scrapbooks for family members as well as an embroidering handprints of the kids. I still have a bunch of ideas to figure out!
As an aside, I had a tough day yesterday with eating and really paid for it. I felt pretty miserable last night and am really trying hard to eat the things that I should be!
