Sew Pink

October is here, and it is time once again to dust off my sewing machine and get to work on my daughter's Halloween costume. She is going to have a poodle skirt, ponytail and cat eye glasses. I figure since she is four, this might be my last shot to have a say in what she wears. Even now that's debatable seeing as how she has been telling me she is going to be a cat!?! Funny how kids become so decisive after the fabric for the "other" costume has been cut and purchased. Nice. Anyway, I'm sticking to my plan and making the perfect "bobby soxer" outfit. Wish me luck on the project. Hopefully cutting and sewing a little felt won't lead to a repeat of Swearfest 2008. I'll keep you posted.

If you'd like to take a peek at what the other Pink Ladies are up to, hand jive over to the blog of our fabulous hostess Beverly. Happy Day!

She'll love the costume. It's scary to realize that what we once wore to school is now a costume :-) I hope you can find a pair of saddle shoes to complete the outfit.

Making Halloween costumes for my children were always a highlight for me and now I'm sewing a cupcake one for my first Grandbaby, Madison, for this year! I love your poodle and she'll be adorable, I'm sure! Happy Pink SAturday! Suzie

Lovely Pink Saturday post and sweet blog, too. Woke up to a dusting of snow on the ground so even thought this isn't Saturday I really needed a boost! Today you made me smile...

Sorry, I didn't get to see everyone yesterday. I had important business. My 11 year-old grandson was playing football and he wanted Mimi to go to the out-of-town-last-of-the-season-game. THEY WON AGAINST AN UNDEFEATED TEAM! WOO-HOO! 35 - 17☺

Hope the coming week blesses you with sunshine, happiness and good friends.
