|The Sanderson Sisters and the "Bless You Angel."|
I LOVE costuming. It's the bestest thing in the whole wide world, so when there is a holiday that requires a costume you know it's going to be my favorite. I have two favorite holidays: Mardi Gras and Halloween. So of course I have to whip up something or it will just ruin my day. Actually, whip up doesn't describe what I do, it's more like a week long frenzy of emotional ups and downs until the thing gets finished.

This year I got to finally live out my dream of being a Sanderson Sister. This was a small group costume thing and with me being the only one who could work a sewing machine, it was a lot, (Did I mention a lot?), of time at the machine. The outfits are a combo of modified thrift shop clothing, odds and ends we had on hand, new items, paint, dye and sewn fabric. Overall we were pleased, but as usual there are things I would like to go back and tweak. Now I will count the days until Mardi Gras and we do this all over again.
