I’ve been spending a bit of time with my daughter, helping her with her school project.  She had to create a monster that came out of the classroom. For my daughter, believe it or not, this was a “simple” project!  This is what she came up with…..a “pequino” (she had to make up a name of the creature) that eats the principal!

Not much to look at…yet….

Well, it is that time of year again.  Quinn has been bugging me for months about starting his Halloween costume. Finally, this weekend we started it.  We haven’t gotten much done, but this weekend we will make more progress.  (He also had a school project which had to be finished!).  I won’t tell you what he is going to be..yet…you will have to wait and see.  You might already be able to guess!


Today is a day off from sewing.  We went to the newly expanded and relocated Please Touch Museum in Philadelphia.  We’ve been members there for a very long time.  Today was a special members only day.  It was a lot of fun.

I am always looking for new and different sewing sites.  One I found is called Grosgrain.  Not only is it a great site, but she is always having giveaways.   A link to this week’s giveaway can be found here.

-Free or affordable daycare for all

-Affordable and easily accessible public transportation

-Access to books for every child

-Free bicycle for every one

-Make America bike friendly so that people can ride bikes to more places
