If you were to look up "procrastinator" in the dictionary, you would find a thumbnail sketch of me. That's about to change though. I am officially starting on my daughter's Halloween costume this week. That's right, this year I will not wait until the week of, or the night before to turn on my sewing machine. I am changing my ways. I am planning ahead. The notions are ready. The shoes have been purchased. All systems are go.
While I have proceeded to set up shop on the kitchen table, my husband has likewise been busy with preparations of his own. He has decided to place a "swear jar" in close proximity to where I will be working. Having been around me during past sewing adventures, he feels that this could be a very lucrative proposition. He even started pricing new golf clubs, when he realized that the pattern I would be using required intermediate sewing skills. The costume does have a zipper, so he is probably guaranteed at least a new putter when all is... said and done. We'll see.
