New Toy And Almost Finished (But Already Worn) Halloween Costume

I was pretty excited when my mother started looking at the newest sewing machines, because I knew she would give me this beauty!  And yesterday I went to my sister Lynne's and used it to make this costume out of some of her stash.  It's safety pinned in the back and doesn't have the ruffles on the sleeves yet, but it worked well for the Pub Quiz.

The Decorative Spider

Been away from home for so long that the sweet little circular web spiders have decorated my front porch for Halloween for me. 

Some of that away time was spent in Las Vegas, where I almost gave into temptation and bought this bracelet.  Somehow nothing looks too gaudy to wear in Las Vegas.
