P & C both had two costumes to pick from on Sunday, and this is what they chose. P is Wolf-man: check out this pose (and the smile)! He was very pleased.
C is Wonder-woman, and you can see she is also very pleased with her costume. We didn't stay to see what their take was, just to see them in their outfits.
Trick or Treat was on Saturday in our neighborhood, and it was a beautiful afternoon. DH and I sat on the porch giving out candy, and looking at the cute kids. There was one little girl that was almost as cute as C, but not quite. She gave us a long involved story about her costume and lack of shoes that lit up. We couldn't understand one word she said, but the gist of the story was as clear as a bell. "What use are shoes that don't light up?" C feels the same way.
I've been playing with kiku stitching. This one is very simple, only two colors, but I tilted the equator and followed it around. I'm still toying with the idea of adding a different color center, but I don't know. I think I would have liked it more with a little less tilt.
It is different, though. Stitching Kikus feels like cheating. They are so much fun, so easy, and so quick! They look complicated but give a lot of bang for your buck. I think I am going to keep exploring them for a little while.
