Things 231 & 232

Remember Martina’s Dementor transformation last week? She won first prize for best costume at her school party. Huzzah!

Halloween continued into November for us. On Saturday we met up with a group of friends for another night of trick-or-treating, this one organized by the expat community in Wassenaar. The night was unseasonably warm — I think it was the warmest November day on record.

Esther wore the Dementor costume and her friend, Catherine, continued the Harry Potter theme and went as Ginny Weasley.

Martina and her friend, Jessica, wore the poodle skirt outfits I made for them a couple of years ago. In keeping with the fifties vibe they renamed themselves Shirley Ann Tate and Alice Petunia Presley.



Everyone needs an alter ego.


Today’s Things are a set for my niece, Kelsey. She’s lived in Lithuania and London so I picked this travel stamp fabric from my stash for her.




The lining is from Martina’s blue Hollyburn skirt.




And of course I made a… *all together now* … tissue pouch.




The summer backlog is dwindling. I should be through blogging about it by the end of this week, which means I’ll actually need to produce something new.


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