Things 229 & 230



My baby, my firstborn. Isn’t she precious?

Martina had a school party this evening, so Esther offered up her Dementor costume.

Esther wore Martina’s pumpkin costume that I made a couple of years ago (still love that hat!) and went trick-or-treating in the neighbourhood.





Every year we get a few stragglers at the door. This year a few ambitious families tried to organize Halloween in our area, sending out flyers asking families to stock up on candy and welcome trick-or-treaters at the door. As a result we had a record 14 kids. (This tradition may take a few more years to catch on…)

Now I have a big bowl of leftover mini KitKats and Twixes. Must. Not. Eat.




Let’s change the subject.


Today’s Things are another set, this one for my niece, Nicole.




I used the fabric from the box I made for Martina’s desk to make a flat bag and lined it with yellow cotton from an old shirt.




And yes, I made a tissue pouch to go with it.




Cost of these Things: 0
Cost of all Things to date: €279.74

    That dementor is scary. I was a dalmatian at work today. The costume is fine on its own but much too warm with a lab coat on top.
