Halloween and Houston

The last week has flown by. Parents arrived from England. Our youngest had a ballet show to perform as a Zombie Ballerina in the mall! Turns out she is not such an exhibitionist when there are other people watching. I had to make a black tutu to turn her into a zombie ballerina!

This year our eldest daughter wanted to be a Zombie Bride! After much searching we couldn't find a costume to buy, so again I made one. A man's large t-shirt and lots of netting! 

And for the Halloween party with the neighbours they were characters from a book called Clover Twig. So a cloak and hat made for a witch, a fat costume for my son and thankfully a cat we already had! Hubby was left in charge of assembling them all, but not a bad job was done!

On Monday my parents and I left rainy Vancouver behind for warm, sunny Houston! We have just got back from the preview night of the International Quilt Festival! Oh, so much to see and buy! Wonderful!

As a result of all that not much progress this week with many of my sewing projects. But a few hours on the plane (and no kids to amuse) meant I got a lot of knitting done!

Got to get some rest now, more quilt show tomorrow! :) 

Linking up with Freshly Pieced and The Needle and Thread.
