Better late than never

Our Halloween costumes wohoo, hopefully you are as excited to see them as we were wearing them. I know Halloween was last month but I am finally getting around to showing you how awesome Mike and I looked in our super hero duo costumes. Mike was The Flash and I was Super Women. Here we go, first up the pattern with how the costumes are suppose to look.

Here we are the super duo coming to a neighborhood near you, Mike the Flash and Super Terra

Up, Up and Away....

Other awesome costumes, Roller Derby Girl a.k.a Cassaundra Lala

The flapper and the SWAT officer a.k.a Lisa and Josh Parris

The nagging married couple, a.k.a Erin and Mike Watson

There were also some great costumes that I didn't get photos of, sorry everyone maybe next year. Hope you enjoyed our awesome costumes and are inspired to try making your own next year. If you have any questions on the costumes let me know.

Finally some new creations

I've finally got around to taking photos of some creations that I've made over the last few months, I'm sure the suspense has been nail biting so lets get to the fun stuff.

Here is my quilt, lets keep in mind this is my first quilt. In hindsight I probably should have started out with something a little simpler but I think it turned out okay thanks to the help of my mother law.

Lets not look at my hair and focus on the quilt, I'm not having the best hair day today. This is how it looks farther away, next I have some up close photos.

The last one is a photo of the back of the quilt, its quilted with a small a X pattern across the quilt, it is kind of hard to see that in these photos.

Quilt number one finished, whoop. I recommend something a little simpler for a first quilt although I am super happy with the end result. The pattern is called a stripes and corners quilt. If you have any questions or want a copy of the pattern to try yourself let me know. The next post will be the Halloween costumes I made for mike and I, and then there will be some surprises coming up. Have an awesome Tuesday and starting creating.
