Sweet Treats

      No Comments on Sweet Treats

Today is that ever so glorious day where it’s okay to take candy from strangers — Halloween! This is the first time that both of the girls are out making the rounds, and I hope that the three of them (’cause yanno, Z with them) have a good time. Smalls was also excited because this year she gets to make… Read more »

Not Spaghetti Squash

      No Comments on Not Spaghetti Squash

Today, I had the dubious pleasure of coring four pumpkins for tomorrow. I don’t know what the frack happened, but two of them decided they were spaghetti squash and I had like, ALL THE STRANDS.

The last bit for Littler’s Halloween costume came in today, so we let her put the bits on and flail around for the camera.

I have to say, doing these in variegated wool keeps it a lot more interesting than single-coloured wool. Past that, just doing my best to be… Read more »

It Begins

We got stuck into doing our Halloween pumpkins today. There’s four to be done, and we got the first two sorted through. Which means Z doing carving as directed by Smallhausen, and me doing lots of scraping and scooping. Arm day anyone? Not that I have any exercise day, but it amused me to lampoon a thing that is so… Read more »
