I was rather amiss at blogging last month. This is partly why –
Mason wanted to be an octopus for Halloween, and yes I made the costume – with matching pants. The head section is fully lined, and it took three bags of poly-fil.
He also wanted to have a Halloween party, so we hosted his friends at the store on Halloween during the downtown trick-or-treat.

I made graveyard brownie cake, ghost pretzels, and mummy wrapped weenies along with eyeball punch.
Saint Patrick
And after a fun filled day filled with trick-or-treating and partying, I had to turn around and make cookies for the All Saints Day party at school – shaped like crosses and iced. I was very tired. Fortunately he chose Saint Patrick again this year, so he could wear last year’s costume for the All Saints Parade.
I’ve also been busy at work cleaning up the section of our website featuring our original pattern designs. For over 2 years I have been working on and off, trying to digitize our old intarsia patterns. To give you an idea as to big of a challenge it has been, the last time these were revised we permanently stored them on zip-disks.
The only viable option was to scan our original print outs, and digitize them that way. It took nearly a year to get the project up and going in that the only legal size scanner we had wouldn’t work with our newer software. Just about the time I’d figure the way around one obstacle, three more would pop up. It was a nightmare!

We finally started moving forward on this long, tedious and boring project. Last month I made myself sit down and finish it.
Did I mention it was tedious and boring? I watched 8 seasons of Weeds, among other things just to stay awake. Don’t worry I didn’t get any new business ideas from Nancy Botwin.
Go over and check out our collection of original designs. I still have a wee bit more work to do over there, but for the most part it is finished. All of our patterns are available in print or download format.designs
Stay tuned! I won’t be so quiet in November.
