JJ's Party Prize

JJ's class had a holiday party this morning.  When I picked her up at dismissal, Ms. W notified me that JJ had won a prize playing the pin the nose on the witch game.  As Ms. W turned to me to hand me the prize, my eyes almost bulged out--it was a huge pumpkin which weighted 20 lbs. Many of JJ's classmates asked how I was going to get the pumpkin home once they knew I did not drive a car to school.  I could only shake my head and hope that I had enough strength to get this baby back home.  Our usual 5-minute walk home turned into 15, as I had to make frequent stops to rest my arms.  By the time we got home, my arms were shaking badly.  I could not even steady my hands for the photo shooting.  All this time, JJ was jumping up and down for the prize she mysteriously won (she kept saying, "I didn't even know how I won the game.")  If you come by our house for trick-or-treat tonight, you will see this guy sitting by the front door.  Have a safe evening!

The Bag of My Eye...

I have not sewn for a few weeks.  With Halloween fast approaching, I need to get my mind off the costumes.  I need inspirations!  I had been eyeing this bag that Miss A carried to JJ's Sunday school class for weeks now.  Perhaps it was the color red, perhaps it was its size, or perhaps it was the shape that caught my attention.  I knew I had to take a picture of this beauty.  This bag will serve as my inspiration for my next sewing project.  Wonder if Miss A knew why I took my camera to church...

JJ's Crazy Hat

This summer during VBS week, the kids were invited to create and wear their crazy hats to the assembly. Together, we came up with 3 different hats.  But, like Goldilocks, JJ would say, "It's too big; it's too heavy; it's too silly."  Finally, she pulled out her knitted winter hat and said, "how about this?  It's just right."  To make it "crazy", I sewed on the marshmallow bunny stuffy I made for Easter and wrapped pom-pom trims around the bunny ears (don't ask me why; it's supposed to be crazy...and, yes, I was aware that the bunny was as big as JJ's face...)  Ta-da! Crazy hat for JJ.

Sleepy Lala

Lala is one funny cat.  He loves to cuddle and follows the person who feeds him (yap, that's usually me).  He enjoys interrupting me getting my attention by sitting in between me and the sewing machine or the computer monitor.  He loves to look out the window and sit under the warm afternoon sun.  But mostly, Lala loves a good nap.  After he's been fed, he would disappear for a good hour or so.  I need to really look for him to know where he naps.  The other day, I noticed that the dotted fabric curtain on top of my fabric bin was draped on the floor.  Odd, I thought.  I lifted the curtain and found this boy underneath.  Look at his sleepy glaring eyes!  Hahaha.  Lala, you are my kind of cat.  Glad to find that you love fabrics as much as I do.
