Sebastian specifically asked to be an iPhone for Halloween this year so how could I resist making him the costume. Okay, so it wasn't Sebastian's idea, it was my mom's, but I like to think he was quite happy with the outcome. When I was young, my mom made costumes that represented something big that had happened in Pop Culture that year. (I was a Coca-Cola can the year they changed the name from just 'Coke'.) So her creative idea was well received.
Walking around with Sebastian in his oversized iPhone costume reminded me of that Halloween scene in E.T. He just kind of shuffled along carrying his Frankenstein candy bag until someone handed him something in a crinkly package. Sometimes he would sign 'Thank You'. It made this Momma proud.
There was an overlap in sewing projects last week so I had to leave my quilt pieces lying on the formal living room floor for a few days. Sebastian loves to walk on them so I took pics to make sure I could replace any rectangles that had been accidentally relocated. I've sewn each piece into rows and now am working on sewing the rows together. I should have a finished top by this afternoon if all goes according to plan and Sebastian sleeps as long as I expect. This one was commissioned by Jessica again as a birthday gift for her sister. I love that they'll have similar quilts to remind them of each other the rest of their lives. Lovely.
