costumes

This is my first year helping in the costume department for Nutcracker. THAT is a job I will never want. I have enjoyed fixing hems, sewing on buttons and adding sparkling doo dads. This production has hundreds of costumes, and that just doesn't sound like fun.

This one was a dress from the party scene. Uh oh...better run. Nutcracker practice in 15 minutes. And so it goes!

It's funny, we just saw the Nutcracker (or excerpts from, shorter for the kids) yesterday, and the one thing that kept going through my mind was "who sews all those costumes?" I hope you're having fun sewing sparkly doodads!

My hat's off to ya! Hey, my mother-in-law just emailed me asking if we'd like to go the the Nutcracker (on the 17th). Is it very long? I'll ask you tomorrow ... at MOPS! :)
