It's November???

Whew, we survived Skeleton Theatre! We ran the show on Halloween and the following evening. Technical difficulties prevented us from starting on time on Halloween but after that the shows went very well. Here's some pics:


If you are interested in some behind-the-scene pics, you can check out Chris' flickr stream.

I didn't have any time to sew during the mayhem, especially since my sewing studio moonlights as the guest room and our very good friends from LA flew up to partake in the skeleton fest. However, I did sneak in a little spinning here and there amidst the cooking of lots of food, making of t-shirts and figuring out how to velcro a light sabre to a skeleton's hand.

It's a lovely carded batt from Enchanted Knoll.

I have a feeling that I won't be spinning for a while, though, because I just looked at the calendar and it is NOVEMBER! I think my mental calendar stopped at Halloween. Now I'm in scramble mode to get ready for the holidays...and my birthday! My birthday is at the end of the month and I'm planning a little treat so check back later.

I hope you had a great Halloween!

Wow - you sure sound busy!

I was embroidering snowmen between trick or treaters this year.

But still, I can't believe it's already November, either!

Was October like three days long or something?!? I think I missed it!

: D

Yes, Jenn, I think there is a calendar conspiracy and the months are only 3 days long. Especially months where there is lots of holiday shopping (and creating!).

Skeleton Theater looks awesome!

I can't believe it is November either. At first I was bummed that I did not schedule any selling venues in November, and now I am breathing a big sigh of relief - this month is going to fly!

And now November is half over! I may cry :) I love seeing what you are spinning! Have you knit or crocheted anything with your handspun?

I know, Liz! I just finished mourning October and now November is slipping away! I haven't knitted anything with my handspun, yet, but I've been looking at some fingerless glove patterns....
