I know I normally update more than I've been the past week or so, but I've been super busy. the holidays are right around the corner, and I'm determined to get back down to 110lbs by then. so just know, if I'm not updating as much, it's because I'm out jogging or lifting weights, haha.
So I made a few more outfits for some of my Sylvanians. like I said before, since Christmas is coming and I'm trying to cut down on my collecting for now, I've been focusing on sewing. not only will it keep me from spending, but it is helping to improve my sewing, which is something I've wanted. I do have a good amount of Halloween photos to upload. perhaps I'll post them tomorrow or Wednesday.
Mrs. Whildwoods dress came out a little baggier than I would have liked. I'll probably try to re-make this dress at some point this week. I wasn't very pleased with it.

Rufus Kennelworths shirt was the first shirt I've ever sewn. it didn't come out horrible, just a tad too big. and also I wish I had some brown thread. maybe I should have used black instead or white? probably wouldn't have been as noticeable. ah well, live and learn.

The Sylvanian Bake Sale

Family and friends are all coming to the bake sale to help support the fire department.

It looks like Mrs. Chocolates table is doing very well!

Yesterday my package from Angel_Smile came. I was very excited :) since I know Christmas is coming, I've been trying to cut back on the amount of Sylvanians I buy from now on (at least until Xmas is over, hehe). This is all I've bought this month, which is a great accomplishment for me. it was hard to choose which one's I wanted most, but I think I made good choices.

I knew I had to have the winter outfits. even though I've been making some on my own, these are just too precious not to buy. Darn Japanese and their ever growing cuteness of Sylvanians!! They're going to put me in the poor house, lol.

So I purchased the Mini Shop and "New Friends" set. I've been kinda going crazy lately with purchasing school related items. They're just so cute. Maybe it's because my oldest son just started 2nd grade, and I'm in the "school-zone" thinking. The Mini Shop isn't school related, but envisioned my Sylvanians stopping by the Mini Shop on their way home from school, so in my mind, it fit :)

a few more things that I made last night and this morning in between cleaning my apartment. I really thought the blue dress came out the prettiest. The front part of this dress was originally supposed to be the back, but I thought it looked very cute in the front. I guess it could be worn either way. both dresses are made of suede material, except for the front of the blue dress which in just simple white felt.

These here are winter shawls. again, the blue is suede material. I used very fluffy white felt as the trim, and velcro in the front to keep them together.

My second attempt at sewing Darlene some clothes turned out much better than the first try. It's not necessarily my sewing that's terrible. I just can't seem to get the measurements right. but this time, it looks like I got it pretty accurate.

I've also been working on some Halloween costumes for my Sylvanians in the past few days, which include, Peter Pan, a ghost, a which, and two Vampires. The Peter Pan one is deff my favorite. I'm not sure if I'll be making any more but I had so much fun using my creative side.

Darlene had a great breakfast this morning. PS: it was her idea to blog it, not mine.

Baby Sheep, Deer and Silk Cat are going to enjoy some mushrooms that they picked all by themselves :)
