Knit, Sew, Jacket

Outside the air smells like crisp fallen leaves, earthy pumpkins, and cabin wood stoves. At night it's starting to get chilly enough to huddle under a blanket and curl your toes under your loved ones leg. With winter right around the corner I have been trying to make time to knit my scarf. Against the bright white snow, and my cherry colored nose in the winter, I think it will end up looking rusticly perfect on me.
There are still some sewing that needs to be done before Halloween. Miss Aries has one blue gingham Dorothy apron that needs to be cut and sewn. Odyn's traffic cone costume is in the works and Damien has all the items needed to be the perfect Star Wars Clone Trooper. While out shopping for all the tid bits a Yoda costume caught my eye for Odyn. There was some debating on making a costume or buying one but when the costumes sound like a beginning of a joke, " A Clone Trooper, Yoda, and Dorothy walk into a bar.." , it's best to stay with the original plan.
In the works is a special little jacket . If only time would slow down a bit and spare a couple hours.

It all sounds very wonderful. There's nothing like a cozy woolly rustic scarf to make a girl look forward to cold weather. :)

I can't wait to see the beautiful little coat you make from that lovely vintage pattern. Oh swoon!

Wow, I wish I could sew. I use to crochet but haven't done that in years. I need to get back into it.
