Do you ever dream in black and white?

I just want to say up front that I hate writing papers, in that they always seem to take up half of the night. Especially tonight. Now that I have that off of my chest...
.
This past weekend was pretty fun, I didn't have too much homework, so I actually got to go do something. On Friday, my sisters and I stayed in for a girls weekend and watched Ironman with homemade smores. Very tasty--the smores, not the movie...okay, the movie too ;)
.
Saturday, me and Megan went to a storytelling performance of The Legend of Sleepy Hollow at the outdoor amphitheater at the local park. So fun, and totally worth it. The weather was cold, but I layered like there was no tomorrow. No frozen ligaments to report. The performance was played out with songs and drama as the narrator read the actual short story written by Washington Irving. The actor playing Ichabod Crane was hilarious-- I laughed so hard, the neighboring audience members probably gave me the evil eye.
.
As a plus, before the show they sold food that was appropriate to the time period, and I tasted the most delicious Dutch Apple Pie. Ever. I have always had a thing for apple pie, so I was in heaven. It was too dark, or else I would have taken a picture. (Also, I ate it before I could would have had the chance.)
.
In other creative doings, I have been scheming up a new sewing project that involves altering a pattern...I am really excited about it, and am planning on working on it this weekend. Let's rephrase this... I will work on it this weekend. Below, I thought I would post a peek of something I made a while ago. I altered a tanktop pattern to include a ruffle on the top. I really like how it turned out, and when I get some better pictures, I will show you what it actually looks like.

.
Nothing else too exciting-- I posted some black and white pics I have been playing around with. It's fun to think in black and white for a change. Plus, stuff like this gets me in a Halloween mood. Anyhoo...I am dragging myself off now to go finish my paper.
.
Sending you creative wishes!
