3 days to Halloween and I am still doing Other Stuff.
A friend is going through a difficult time now with some family
changes, including a challenging baby situation, so I thought I'd
stop working on Emily's costume midway and put together a
package of stuff for her. Mostly food - tea, hot chocolate, chocolate
and other hopefully healthy snacks.
But also a crystal necklace for her
and one or two of these fleece blankets for her little one.
This stack of blankets would have been twice as high had I not
run out of woolly nylon. It was just as well, since I shouldn't have
been serging fleece blankets by the tens when Emily's sad outfit
was being pointedly ignored.
Making the jewellery was also a nice diversion because I hadn't
indulged in that particular pastime for about 5 years. But it was
slow going, since I was so rusty. That, and I'm still using the
old pliers from the home fix-it kit lying around the house.
I did work a bit on the costume today, though.
Its pinkness might be getting to me, I think.
