Have Machine, Will Travel

Who takes a sewing machine camping?
I do! (Notice that I forgot the make-up and curling iron, but remembered the sewing machine?!)

We did our last camping shin-dig of the season this weekend, and had a great time.  Jellystone Park in Frankenmuth, Michigan.  Gorgeous weather (chilly at night, though!), with LOTS of Halloween decorations and trick-or-treating. I think for some people, Halloween requires more decorations than Christmas, which means that come November 1, I'll be stocking up on some, too!  All in all, it was a fabulous way to end a great year of camping festivities!
Little Miss Princess wore her witch costume from last year (Maid Marion is still under construction. Did you see the top picture???), and Little Man was Optimus Prime.  If I'd been thinking straight, I'd have prepared myself enough time to make him Robin Hood or a Knight, (Bad Mom!) but thankfully, he really gets excited to wear the store-bought costumes with the cool masks.

Anywho, just thought I'd check in, and say thanks for the compliments on the silk dress I made for Vegas.  4 ply silk is my new favorite fabric!

Personally, I wouldn't leave home without it (the SM). Especially camping! You've got plenty of time for the Maid Marion costume!
