Halloween costume is finished! Note: fitting something on a squirming child is not easy, and I had to hand sew it (not having a sewing machine has its perks, though; I’m actually fairly proficient at sewing,) and I think I’ve made a reasonable approximation of Robin Hood’s hat. My little one lost interest for awhile, so I showed him the disney movie and he has been enchanted since then. He wouldn’t stand still to be fitted for any length of time until yesterday, so until then I only had the hat finished. I was a bit worried it wouldn’t be done, but I was a faster stitcher than I anticipated, lucky for him. Now we just need a feather for the hat!
Happy Halloween, everyone!!! I hope you all manage to pig out without getting a stomach ache ~ stay safe! Working on the candy corn pattern still so I’ll try to post that once it’s fully tested.

-semi sort of better, just going through the totally exhausted phase of recovery, sleeping & fighting migraines = not so good with light/computer screens. I’ll be back soon, I’m just not quite there yet.
-have in fact finished a thing or two, but haven’t had sunshine to take photos of them
-writing…writing…writer’s cramp @.@
-still working on divorce papers. hearing tomorrow. seriously no idea how this is going to go or what’s going to happen or if my brain will work
-candy corn pattern is actually done (I think), last test I had to change a few things, so I’m going to make it again and see if I was just wrong about the stitch count or whether I actually made a mistake.
-my son is the absolute most amazing person in the universe, and I would like to take a moment to bask in gratitude for the fact that he is here to brighten every day, no matter how stressful.

I’ve found many of the patterns requested previously, I need to post them ^_^ sorry it’s so late, I haven’t forgotten!
Also going to make a compilation of my favorite free amigurumi patterns and my favorite fall/winter designs. Stay tuned, but not too closely because it’ll probably be a little while.
Nearly done with donation 14!!!
Almost done with the mini candy corn pattern, decided to use joined rounds since it’s so small, and had to modify it for that. Looking good though and should be posted soon.
Working on my character interview to take my first novel in the series another step closer to being… closer to finished….
Trying not to tip over. Still not feeling the best but am doing a little better. Have made it through some of my dash. For now I think it’s time for a nap. @.@ zzzzz
Thank you for all the lovely encouraging messages you’ve sent me over the last few days. I feel so loved :3 you guys are wonderful <3 thanks for being so patient and so kind.
