I love the idea of sewing, but the actual process can be harrowing LOL, so I do it quite infrequently. Allegra wanted to go to the fabric store and pick out a pattern and some fabric for her costume this year and I thought that would be so cute. She picked an adorable Little House on the Prairie style pioneer girl costume with slip, pantaloons, dress, apron, and sunbonnet. I cut out the fabric right away, but the whole project has been staring woefully at me from the "sewing" table for several weeks. Last night I promised myself I would start, and I didn't get too far (because I had to make buttonholes right away, which I've never done before) but I did spend a few hours working on it. I imagine I'll be spending several weeknights this month slaving away at the sewing machine. Now that I mentioned my project in public though I'll just HAVE to make sure it gets finished in time for Halloween LOL.
