I know you are probably just about as sick of seeing Sawyer's new pants as I am sewing them. The next time I decide someone needs nine new pairs of pants/shorts/skirts for a season (wait, let me recant the skirts), please someone remind me that monotony almost killed Lera.
This is almost the end of Sawyer's new fall/winter wardrobe. Unfortunately for us (me for sewing and you for reading), there are two more pairs that are cut and awaiting to be sewn. I'm sorry that I have to bore you with this. But, really, it's the most interesting thing happening around here lately.
The green pants are wide-wale corduroy and the rusty-colored ones are a velvety, no-wale (per the lady at the fabric store) corduroy. Corduroy has been on sale lately and dirt cheap. I couldn't resist. I just adore corduroy this time of year. The pockets on the pants are actually "back pockets," but for the sake of only taking one photo (and boring you less), I flipped the pants around. Again I used super-sweet Japanese fabric for embellishing. And I'm totally loving the Humpty Dumpty. The fabric has prompted Spenser to walk around the house reciting Humpty Dumpty. So fun.

On Saturday evening when we were getting ready for our church's Trunk or Treat party, I asked Carter what he wanted to dress up as. He said (and I really have no idea where this came from), "A middle-aged man who starts a town riot." HUH?!? I don't know if he meant a "middle-aged" man, as in someone in their 40's or if he meant a man from the Middle Ages. And what's this about starting a town riot? Needless to say, he dressed up as a knight. Do any of you know what that means? Because I sure don't.
