Back to Our Regularly Scheduled Programming...

So.  It's been a while since I've written.  It's been even longer since I posted anything about sewing.  I was preoccupied.  A lot.  So let's do a quick photo dump of recent projects, shall we?  Lovely.

I tested the Ruffled Bustle Top pattern for Sumo's Sweet Stuff.  I'll do a separate post of that later.

For the half marathon I made myself a running belt using this tutorial.  It worked great!  My running shoes provided the color scheme for the running belt.  Because you've gotta match the shoes and the purse.  ;)
I also made this shirt and enjoyed wearing it a couple of times.  Unfortunately, I had to stop counting and put the shirt away a couple weeks after this picture was taken.  Hopefully I'll be able to get it back out again in the future.
This year's Halloween costumes were nowhere near the huge production of last year.  The only costume made completely by me is my own.  As I was the only one who didn't get a new costume last year, I deserved it.
Captain Hook
Peter Pan...NOT dressed in tights
The whole crew, including Wendy and Mr. Smee
The biggest project was a mini wardrobe for my cousin, for which I will also write a separate post.

I am also in the process of making myself a coat.  Right now I'm in full weight loss mode.  I decided I want to work on losing 15 lbs before the end of January, which is when we would have the doctor's okay to try to get pregnant again. I'm not convinced I'll be ready that soon.  However, I'm racing with myself to see if I can lose those 15 lbs before the waiting period is over.  It's a way for me to compete with myself and I'm already down two pounds.  Now I just need to keep it up.
