Here are the last 2 trick or treat bags I made. Again with the scraps. You'd think I didn't have any 'real' fabric around. I do. I'm just trying to use up some of the pile of little bits. Then I can use my stash, then I can justify new fabric! And sewing with scraps takes way too long. Piecing together enough small pieces to make a large piece is a nightmare. Especially when you notice after you're all done sewing that one piece is upside down. I try to leave it. But it annoys me. And I have to go back and unpick it, and resew it. No wonder what's listed as a 1 hour project takes me 5.
And a sneak at the contents.
What do you think I'm making with this pile of stuff?
I know my hubby and my mother in law are curious. I sent them into Home Depot to get more of the Mickey Head paint chips, but wouldn't tell them what I needed them for.
Yes, I 've been sucked in by the marketing. Yes, I've been brainwashed. My favourite mascot is Miga, the seabear. Love the pink nose and the blush.
Guess what? Hubby and I actually went on a date on the weekend. We don't get to do that very often, He's either working or at Search and Rescue. Or I'm at one of my two jobs. We had to take advantage of rare night when we both had no plans. So Friday night we had dinner and a movie. Picking a movie we both want to see is not easy. We both like Steve Carrell. He's hilarious in The Office, and in the 40 Year Old Virgin and Little Miss Sunshine. We finally agreed on Dan in Real Life. I liked it, hubby said it was almost a chick flick. He gets to choose next time. Then we can't whine. Or I'll choose and he'll have a reason to whine. I'm sure he'd love to see Enchanted. Not!
