Welcome, November!

November 1, 2012

Oh, before we get into November I should probably share my Halloween costume before I forget. I didn’t make this one, but I love it so much it makes me want to sew up some Neo-Victorian/Steampunk stuff immediately! SO fun!

I wish I could wear a fancy bustle skirt and mini top hat every day! Those must have been the days.

Okay, moving right along…
November is probably my favorite month of the year. Not only because it’s my birth month, but there are lots of exciting things coming up that I’m really looking forward to!

First of all, the Peony Sew-along for Sew Colette will be taking a bit of a break after this month. We all need some extra time for holiday sewing, right? The Peony Parade will start the week of November 5th (and continue all week) so make sure you’re adding your finished project photos to the flickr pool!

After that, I’ll be sewing like mad in preparation for the Queen City Craft Bazaar on the 17th! I had so much fun in the spring, and I’m so excited to be back again for the holiday show. I’ll be making a lot more of these


Next up on the list of November activities is my birthday!! On the 19th I’ll be a whole quarter of a century old. I really love getting older, honestly. Or maybe I just really like birthdays 😉 Oh, speaking of birthday presents, someone PLEASE get these flippin’ amazing feetie pajamas back in stock ASAP! I NEED them!


Don’t forget to check in with the Wrap along! I’ll be sharing my project on the 21st. If you don’t have the book yet you should really get it. The photos are gorgeous and the projects are all so cute! I mean, did you really expect anything less from Miss Miller?


And finally after all that is done, I’ll be making the Sassy Librarian Blouse by Christine Haynes! I already have the class downloaded, but I’m trying to be really good and not watch the videos until after the craft fair. I can’t wait to sew it! It’s so cute!


What are your sewing plans for November?
