Even with Halloween over, we can’t seem to turn the hat back into a balaclava.

Books

We added our little library to the boulevard last weekend, in amongst the plants where Brett has been naturalizing.

Eily and Gabe each painted a side (a sunflower and fireworks, respectively) and they asked me to add the leafy garland around the door. I also painted the five trees on the back.

Perfect Score

Well hardly. But the third try saved this dress before I was out. Once again, i picked apart the side seams and took it in. This time more the bodice than the waist.

I have learned, over many indie patterns, that I need to err on the side of too small rather than too big. Definitely riskier but it’s what the research tells me.
