I whipped up 10 sashes for my DD's GAs group (GA=Girls in Action which is a Southern Baptist Mission Study group for young girls). I also worked on turning a quilt binding that shouldn't but is taking me forever. I spent 3-4 hours creating a wolfman (hat) costume for my 9 y/o son to wear for trick-o-treating but he decided at the last minute it wanted to be a Texas Ranger.....okay with me, less work since I had all the pieces for that one in the closet. My DD wore my old costume that I retrofit for her last year and my youngest loved last year's costume he wanted to wear it again....he makes an adorable penguin.
I pray that November will be a more productive month, with so much to accomplish and so much to do. I have hopes of getting a booth at a store for some projects I have going on. It would be nice to have a little extra pin money with Christmas just around the corner.
My husband and I have been talking about down sizing our lifestyle for the last few years and two weeks ago we signed on to build a house in a community South of where we are now. The house is slated to be finished in March 2014. We plan on putting our current house on the market mid-January. It is a little daunting when I think of what needs to be done in a few short months that include two major holidays. We are going from a 3600 sq foot house to a 1850 sq foot house. Paring down, letting go of treasures and pitching out of clutter is very important and I feel an urgent need to get a jump on things now.
I had my youngest in swim lessons this morning and the beach ball they were playing with in the pool had an inspiring design in it. I am already working a new block out in my head, to mimic the pattern. Funny what inspires us.
Here's to a productive November.
