I couldn't find a Halloween box so just opted for something cute that looks like a suitcase. There is a touch of orange in the box design (I go nuts about details). Each box includes 2 Halloween pillowcases, 7 (what an odd number) Halloween appliqued wash cloths, a package of 'Monster Mash' Jelly Bellies, a bag of cinnamon potpourri, and 2 Halloween Pez candy dispensers. They're off to Arizona and Chicago tomorrow.
I had an MRI on my lower back this afternoon. I've had back pain and spasms for years. My doctor ordered x-rays last week which showed something odd... like an old fracture that healed wrong. "Were you ever in a car accident, take a bad fall, etc?" Yes to all of them! It's amazing what a 'klutz' I am after taking ballet for almost 15 years. I'll get the results next week.
This morning I zoomed off to JoAnn's to their pattern sale... 99 cents each!! I went on line last night and looked at patterns and wrote down numbers so that I could just charge on over to the drawers and pull them out. You could only buy 10 at one time... so I did. June of Junie Moon got me inspired to make some hot-weather skirts and tops to wear in Arizona next month. She shared some pattern numbers and I was able to get all of her suggestions. Thanks June!! I haven't made anything for myself in years. So, I'm going the muslin route first and playing Project Runway (which by the way, season 4 begins in a few weeks... love that show!!)
Off to rest my back before dinner. Tonight we're starting a Peter Whimsey movie series.
Love, love, love BBC series!
