I should be making Rapunzel hair


Happy Halloween everybody! And thank you very much for your enthusiasm and sweet comments about the new Little Red pattern! I've been away with the kids visiting family and now I'm home just in time for Trick or Treating tonight, but first I need to do a bunch of laundry and cleaning and other unexciting stuff. Also I need to make a Rapunzel wig. I have a large amount of yellow yarn and at best a very vague idea of what I need to do. Flowers and interwoven ribbon have been requested. Wish me luck.


Does anyone else collect acorns for no apparent reason? I keep telling myself I'll do some cool something with them. I love the little caps.




I enjoyed some thrift store shopping with my sister Leigh this last week in Huntsville. She was scouting for Halloween costume elements (Luke and Leia) and also clothes for her new grandbaby(!) on the way, Darcy Anne. I was shopping for whatever tripped my fancy. I found lots of cute clothes for the girls (especially love that green cord skort!), set of cool sheets, weird plastic mushroom picks and this book, among others. The book is to inspire me for my next installment of ornaments. The sheets I just bought because I thought, hey, cool sheets. Maybe a summer dress or nightgown?

  2. Seems like my granddaughter isn't the only one enthralled with Rapunzel hair. Last time we were skyping, she turns her back to me, flounces her hair and said, "Gwamma, I'm gwoing my hair out wike Wupenzel's."

    With your creativity, I'm confident your wig will turn out great!

  4. Acorn collecting--yup. I can't help but pick them up. I have them in all different sizes. Have I ever done anything with them? Nope. I keep waiting for inspiration to hit :

  5. Hope you got the hair done in time. My daughter was Rapunzel and it took me about 4 hours to do her hair. The directions on the pattern said to cut the head piece at 18" but it was too small. I wish I would have measured her head first. Good luck.

  6. That book is my absolute favorite Christmas book! I'm excited to see your next installment of ornaments, what a fun tradition!

  7. I had the exact same idea of making ornaments according to the song. My eldest son and I drive the rest of our family crazy, but we love to sing this song behind our very false piano! I hope you don't mind I go ahead with my idea too. Let's compare them in the end, shall we?

  8. Seriously, my Mom found that exact green mushroom buried in the compost pile of her new house and gave it to me.

  10. hey - I'm a little behind on keeping up with your blog. :S We have that same 12 days of Christmas book and love the illustrations in it, especially all the fancy dresses. That has inspired a LOT of paper dolls. Hope your ornaments turn out great!
