I am getting pretty excited for Hallowe’en. Both costumes are really close to completion! I have only a few final hems and snaps for Boy Blue’s costume. Little Red’s is a little further behind but definitely on the home stretch. Hooray!
I’ve learned a lot about sewing with this project. I feel much more confident about looking at something and figuring out how to make it. I really feel like I’ve improved a lot! In fact, I’m so bolstered by ny increased abilities that I’m already conceptualizing an even bigger, more ambitious project as a gift to the family for Christmas. If you’re reading my blog you already know I’m crazy, but it’s so crazy I don’t even dare tell you what it is.
So yesterday as I was cutting out some more pieces and revelling in a little bit of pride (I admit) I asked my husband what he thought. “I know you think I’m crazy, but when the projects are done do you ever think it’s cool or do you just think, “my wife is so crazy.” Do you ever wish you had a normal wife that bought things like everyone else?”
He was quiet for a while and I’m sure he was debating which answer would be safest. Finally he said, “it’s about 50/50.”
I was really hoping for something closer to 75/25, with the coolness overpowering my-wife-is-crazy. But as it turns out, he’s pretty worried that one of these days I’m going to finally realize that I took on more than I can handle and that I’m going to snap.
A complete snap in which I am never the same again.
I told him not to worry. I’m not that crazy.
