November Update

Salutations! It's November already? I'm on a pretty short turn-around between trips. I got back from New York on Thursday and I leave for Tokyo today. As I mentioned, there will be a 3-4 week hiatus from blog posts while I am in Japan, as I will not be bringing my laptop with me. Regular posting will resume on Dec 2nd. 

I had a pretty decent Halloween this year. Blayke and I carved pumpkins, watched movies and hung out with some friends in the evening. As usual, the weather was not the best so my friends and I decided to skip Church Street festivities. I wore my Toothless onesie so I could be extra cozy. Blayke made his first costume. It's Mister Chief

My New York trip yielded excellent results in the fabric shopping department, though my wallet is hurting from the steep exchange rate. I have the fabrics I need for my next 2 costumes as well as my accent gold fabric for Sakura.

I won't say what these all are for (the fabrics on the right here are for a secret costume I've been working on), but you can probably make an educated guess what the green jersey fabrics below are for. ;D The pretty buttons are going to be used on my next tailored jacket, whenever I get around to making it.
I saw some great shows in NYC--Shear Madness, The King and I, and Kinky Boots. I definitely recommend Kinky Boots. (Though Gentlemen's Guide to Love and Murder is still by far my favourite Broadway show I've seen.)
