Its all true, the boogie girl is real, and you've found her. She knits, sews, spins, does pottery and writes it all down in this blog.

Trick or Treat!
Oh, too late you say. No candy left?
Well, I didn't finish sewing my costume until yesterday. M's was sewn a few days earlier because she had a school Halloween party.

The little one was Queen Frostine from the Candyland game. Yes the costume looks alot like Cinderella, that's what I had a pattern for. I have no idea why she has that look on her face but I still think she looks darn cute. Notice the pants and black shoes sticking out from underneath the dress. It was warm so at least she didn't have to wear a coat over her costume this year.
I was "prairie chick". Straight from the frontier. That's me spinning, working on the 3rd bobbin for Carissa's yarn. Do I not look prefect for the part? Oh, forget the hanging "flame" bag of roving, the fact that the roving is red and there are a bunch of CD's behind me. I felt "prairie" but I had Thai for dinner and collected nasty amounts of candy. Terri, no hardtack yet.
The weekend wasn't all tricks and sewing. I knit a pair of mittens for myself from one othe yarns I showed off on Friday. I love them. I think I need one pair.
