Friday Night Sew In

I didn't actually sign up for the Friday Night Sew In.
Most times, when I do, I end up forgetting.
Plus, I am really not a night time sewer.
But, I am having a hard time adjusting to a baby in my house all day so I get no sewing done and NEED to start sewing at night.
I love that baby, but she is truly a distraction of the best kind!
So, the to-do list get's longer, the time (until christmas) get's shorter.
Feels like the story of my life! LOL
But, last night, I didn't sign up for the FNSI for a good reason.
It was my 19year anniversary.
Yep, 19! I don't feel old enough to be married that long, and have a daughter graduating from high school, but its the truth.
So, hubby and I went out to dinner and I knew I wouldn't feel like sewing later on.
Except I did. Feel like it. So I did. Sort of.
My birthday is Thursday, yep, thanksgiving day. It falls on thanksgiving more often then I like.
So, knowing what I was getting, I begged to open my gifts early.
And, look:.
What a surprise!
Noooo, not really, I picked it out, but I am so excited about it!
I have wanted a serger for years, but was intimidated by them and really not sure how much I will use it.
I spent 3 hours learning to thread it last night. I didn't sew a thing, except for some scraps as I tried it out. BUT I FIGURED OUT THE THREADING!!!!!!
OMGosh, yeah!!! Today, I will be sewing on it.
I'm quite happy with my FNSI results :)

Trick Or Treat

Parisian Showgirl
She didn't go trick or treating, but this was at the halloween party the previous weekend

Captain America
Yes, I made most of this costume. We both loved how it turned out!

If you have to ask who? then I suggest you go read The Hunger Games.
Yes, its a kids book but an excellent read. 

 The Grim Reaper
The typical boy costume. By the end of trick or treating, he had no gloves, no mask, no scythe, and the hood was pushed off his head.
Hope you had a Happy Halloween!
