We finally broke down and went to CVS (drug store) for candy yesterday afternoon; I'm glad we did as we did get a few trick-or-treaters last night and are thinking we may get a few tonight. We still have a BUNCH of candy in this bowl as we were the only ones with lights on our street last night. Halloween certainly has changed from when I was a child and Halloween has ALWAYS been different in the South from where I grew up in New York.
With Halloween we are finally getting some weather that actually feels like Fall. I may need to visit some Thrift stores for some heavier pants for the winter months. If we ever had to move North again I would have to find a BUNCH of warmer clothes; we ALL would as our wardrobes are VERY "Southernized" (yes I made this word up).
I am working on Christmas presents and have to do a bit of seam ripping as I got the cart before the horse and missed the application of interfacing on several pieces - live and learn. I can't really share much about this project as the person it's for reads my Blog but I may give a little sneak peek of some of the fabrics later. Maybe....
Well I better get some breakfast made so that I can get in the sewing room for a bit before we go to visit one of Scott's High School classmates down in Swansea. Swansea,SC was where I first lived when I moved to South Carolina in 1982; Perhaps we will drive past the house I lived in today - a little house in the woods.
