I think it’s pretty safe to assume that if I’m not updating this blog, it’s because I’m sewing; and taking pictures which will eventually end up on the blog.
So while I wasn’t able to get the costume done in time to take it myself, I spent the last two weeks (mostly) sewing madly to make sure to get it done in time for my nephew’s actual birthday on the 14th. I’m happy to say I sent it on the bus this afternoon and it should be there tomorrow morning. As a kid I remember how exciting it was to get something in the mail with my name on it. (Not so fun anymore; it’s all bills.) So I put my nephew’s name on the box, care of his parents. I hope he enjoys it.
