Halloween Will Soon Be here and I think I'm going crazy!
I really shouldn't be blogging because my custom Halloween costume needs to be in the mail by 4 p.m. to make its destination on time. I do this every year. Someone asks me if I can make a costume and I reply...oh sure...and then the craziness begins. I've only promised three costumes this year and they're relatively simple. Cat woman, Indiana Jones and a sexy but authentic looking Bavarian beer girl. I get hung up on the little details (because I love little details) and then the busy-ness begins. This summer I cleaned out my sewing stash and now I am wanting that piece of stretch black velvet and that nifty brown cord that was donated to a local charity (and is probably bundled up for sale in a nice plastic pack at my local Value Village). To make matters worse, this morning I ran out of green thread and there's literally nowhere in town to buy green thread. Yes, black and white are in stock and maybe red, but green? Help! Well, soon this will all be over and I will have survived, I'm sure. But the lesson I've learned is, "If in doubt, DON't throw it out" and always have extra thread on hand. Happy sewing everyone. I'll post pictures of my final creations next week, hopefully, when I've recovered.
