October SECRET SQUIRREL...and some flickr loveliness

October 01, 2013

Today is the first of October...I know, I cannot believe how fast 2013 is flying by.  I have only just gotten used to writing the 2013 date and it is nearing it's end!! To celebrate the first of October, Secret Squirrel is ready to be unveiled for another month...Tasha sent Secret Squirrel off with these five acorns before settling in to have her baby son!

An and I have only been given one photo as a sneak peak of the outfit created by the October Secret Squirrel blogger.  I love using bias, have recently read The Little Prince, and like to consider myself fairly green....(as an aside, have you read that An had a baby girl last week?  A big surprise for most!!). 

Here is the sneak peak of the October blogger's outfit....I spy some Little Prince stars!!!

I am very excited to have a better look and can't wait to see what she has made!!  Click HERE to find out the next Secret Squirrel host!!!  And if you would like to host for next month, make sure you leave a comment on this bloggers post to let her know!!  There are some pretty cool prizes which you can read more about here and we would love to have you along!!


Here are some lovely sew along outfits created in the Secret Squirrel flickr group....

Tasha sewed along with the first five acorns for July Secret Squirrel at her fab blog, I seam stressed.

    Thanks for your sweet comments on my post over at I Seam Stressed. :) I was so pleased to see your name, I was CRAZY over your Debbie dress at last KCW, and I already have one cut and fabric for the other. Once I finish the first and see how the fit is on my girl, I'll be on it. So exciting.
