Well, The Have-to's Have Won...

for now.
For some time now I have been trying to make time to make Julie's Halloween costume. She wants to be a princess.
A fluffy pink princess.
I have some lovely pink brocade that I bought cheap when they were moving my local Jo-Anne's store.
I figured I could knock off a renfaire outfit for her in short order.
No such luck.
Losing this past weekend was the last straw. There is no time between now and halloween to make anything.

An e-coupon showed up in my mail box from Party City for 20% off and free shipping if over a certain amount.

So I ordered a pink fluffy light-up princess costume.

There will be nifty home made costumes in years to come, but this year, I can't do it.

I'm sorry. It's always frustrating to have a great project in mind and run out of time for it.

Hopefully next year.

Fortunately my baby (who is 11, mind you) wants to be a zombie this year. In previous years he's wanted to be Gandalf (also easy)... so now I'm spending time at my machines making pajama pants for Christmas presents. (Including little bitty purple flannel tinkerbell ones :) I've been making the same pants for so long it takes longer to run the elastic than it does to make the pants. I kind of wish that someone wanted me to make a fluffy pink princess costume.
