My daughter's family is having their family pictures taken next week and asked if I could make a gray dress for their little one. I LOVE sewing children's clothing so I jumped at the idea.

A few of the grandchildren needed their Halloween treat bags for trick or treating so I did up some simple little bags for them.
The children's school auction is coming up in the middle of November and I made a couple of items for the silent auction.

While the little ones were here this week they found a neat looking "leaf" bug on the wall. All were quite impressed with it!
When my children were little we had a great toy that they spent hours playing. Some of you may remember it - the Red Raven records with the mirrored carousal. I brought it out for the kids this week and they enjoyed it as much as my own children did. The records have characters on them that the mirrors reflect their movement as the records revolve. One can enjoy the antics of the Three Blind Mice or Santa Claus Coming to Town as well as many others. I do think the children were as intrigued with records as they were with the mirror activity. Everything is digital for them.

The weather has cooled off considerably this week. It makes for some good evenings for warm, cozy fires and extra blankets on the bed. Thankfully, there will be no snow in our future.
