a trip to bates nut farm with matt, alec, and kaya in the middle of nowhere (valley center, ca).
mammoth pumpkins! nature's pretty weird sometimes.
i'm pretty sure it could've taken me about five whole days to decide on a pumpkin. i attribute that to my high pumpkin-carving standards and my world-famous indecisiveness. i finally settled on one that i think will make for the perfect squash homage to "un gato con una pipa"!
so i guess halloween is this holiday where people dress up like other people. like, ahem, hooter's girls and pirates, and doughnuts and ostriches. or something.
emily wanted to be a french doll for halloween, so...
any excuse to sew!
look what we made into the wee hours of the night while watching ridiculous amounts of 30 rock. "we" being my sewing and emily's endless tap-tap-tapping of 56 eyelets into fabric.
not bad for a first try at corset-making. not that i'll ever have another reason to make one, but, whatevs. i'm getting to know my new sewing machine friend better.
