score!

Here we have the Circus Socker Soccs in their finished glory, as modeled by Horsey Girl (complaining all the way - like I ask her for so many favors, I'm sure!) The pooling here is over the top, n'est-ce pas? I'm not really really in love with these socks, but they will be fun to wear when I head back to teach Kindergarten in the dreary dregs of January...remind me to practice my kitchening skills, will ya? The toes on these look pretty drastic.

Yesterday brought some exciting mail to the ol' box!
Ms. La Belle was cleaning house recently, and I won a little drawing she had while reducing her stash. Wasn't I the lucky duck!? Just look at that adorable circus fabric. (Hmmm...is it a recurring theme?) The sweet yellow prints would really brighten up any quilts I might (ahem) be working on. The green is a linen-y type fabric positively crawling with adorable bugs. Mostly out of sight but still wonderful is a brown flowery piece I have my eye on for a skirt. But wait! There's more...
P. #2 is enomored by this sweet old apron, a cute gingham cross stitched by someone long ago...she will wear it soon when we bake pumpkin muffins together next week. And not to be outdone, Horsey Girl had to give it a whirl too...
It looks positively witchy with her costume. Always the deconstruction queen, she's been hard at work slashing away at a flea market dress to create the quintessential Dark Angel/Bad Fairy outfit. Wait 'till you see it!

Thank you so much Gina! I am the luckiest witch in the cave!
