I am making a Star Tek T shirt for my college son. I bought the fabric yesterday. I am using an old KS pattern 2561 I think, or one from the Master Pattern book called Sweatshirts Unlimited. I am using neckline number 7 which is a V neck of sorts with a turtleneck type of effect.

I've traced off the neckline overlay and the V collar but have not traced off any of the T shirt patterns to see how the overlay would fit. I have been practicing freehand embroidering some patch patterns that my son has drawn out for me. We sewed one onto a pair of his knit pj's. The fabric is washed and ready.

My week got suddenly busy but I am working on it in my head.

There is a Creative Thread subject on this as well. I'm a little short on brain cells, and our dog won't stop barking at *air*. I think it's the cooler weather.

I have been toying with the idea of making myself something to wear on Halloween because I'm playing the cello at an English country dance session that night and it might be fun to wear a costume. Some sort of "wench" thing -- blouse, long skirt, fake corset? Will have to look around the house and see if I have anything suitable to repurpose. Is there an easy way to do something like this?

I just bought fabric today to make a costume for Thing 2 - he wants to be a pirate this year. Will be using either McCall 5446 or McCall 4952 - they look very similar, if not identical. Thing 1 plans to reuse the Grim Reaper costume from last year, which doesn't hurt my feelings. ;)

I remember those days with pleasure - but my little ones are both adults now and make their own costumes.

I was making DD's costume when I went into labor with her brother, and what with one thing and another I didn't get back to it. My best friend came here to stay with our daughter for what was supposed to be two days but turned into a week, and she took DD to the Disney store and bought her a Tinkerbelle costume. The first I knew of it was when DD came running into my hospital room with big eyes and she said,

"Mama, did you know that they sell Halloween costumes IN STORES?"

My grandmother taught me to sew when I was 10, and I've been sewing ever since.

I made my niece costumes for Halloween. My biggest success was when I made her a Michael Jackson outfit with a red satin, gold braid jacket.

I'm trying to get in the Halloween mood. I love kids and how cute the younger ones look dressed up. I'm not able to buy the kind of candy I usually do this year. That could be it. But, I believe there are some hard candies that the kids love too. I know of one that has a strawberry flavor with gooey stuff inside.

I made a bed runner for my grandson then pillowcases to match. He got the pillowcases first (I was waiting on the bed runner to be quilted). My son sent pics of him putting one of the pillowcases over his head and acting like a monster (playfully) with my granddaughter that is 3 years younger. She was in awe. It was Dr. Seuss' Lorax theme fabric. Maybe that's what I will dress up for Halloween (to greet the kiddos). A pillowcase monster! LOL Good luck with the costumes!
