It's not knitting, but it is needlework

This year I sewed my daughter a cloak as part of her Hallowe'en costume. Combining it with stuff we already had around the house and a few choice Value Village finds, I really liked how it came out, so I thought I'd share here.

"Adorable" is an inadequate word here, but it's the best I've got. Awesome!

Well done. Very, very nice job. 30 more days of that and we'll have you in the union.

Oh my word! How can she be that big? (This is me measuring the unspeakably long time it's been since we've seen you by the size of your stunningly lovely daughter!) The costume is fabulous. And wow do I miss you!
