I've been planning a Hallowe'en costume that involves me making a prop.  I decided that I'm going to make this prop.  This picture is NOT mine but one I found on Pinterest.

Recreating it wouldn't be that hard.

We sell fake pumpkins at work so I can get one there for under $20.

I've got two options for painting it.

One is using model paint and painting the pumpkin that way.  Model paint is meant to adhere to plastic while everything else will come off.  The drawbacks is model paint is expensive.

My other option is priming the pumpkin and then painting it once the primer is dry.

You can get those big fake rhinestones pretty cheap online and organize them in any way you want.

I've had an unexpected expense but Hallowe'en is a little over a month away so that gives me some time.

Well, this is the dress that wore out my old sewing machine.  I seem to have a three year lifespan with sewing machines before they up and die on me.  Considering how much I use them I'd say three years is a pretty good span and I certainly got my money's worth out of it.

I got a new sewing machine and it's a lot more sensitive but it works really well.  Thankfully it's like the "big brother" of my old machine so a lot of things are the same with it.

I've been working on and finished up a commission piece for a client.  She picked out some lightweight gray silk, a black overlay, and velvet trim.  It was a challenging project to work on but over all I think it turned out pretty nicely.

I'm sorry for not having updated in a while.  It's been very busy and I've also been rather sick lately.  My latest battle was with a bad bout of food poisoning where I was hospitalized overnight.  It sure doesn't kill you but it makes you wish that it did!

I'm super late for the party but I did set up an Instagram account.  You can find me here.
