...... I'm just avoiding responsibilities.
It's 14 days to Halloween and there are no costumes in sight.
Only this pile of bias tape
which has nothing to do with costumes whatsoever. But it was easier to make than costumes, so I did that instead. I'm also sewing softies that have nothing to do with Halloween, either. And yesterday I hummed my way through a cardboard piñata that is also not Halloweeny. I've even been harboring serious thoughts of cooking a large pot of beef stew for a mom-friend who just had a baby. I can't bring myself to start costumes. The fabric is all (as far as I can visualize, anyway) bought. The design is all on paper. I just need to start. Grab a child, measure a waist, something, anything. But - lalalalalalalalalalala - I'm sitting here, thinking, "should I use skin-color sweatshirt fabric or skin-color fleece? Oh, this is too hard. I think I'll go re-read Lord of The Rings now."
P.S. And no, my children are not going to be Gollum for Halloween. Gollum would be easy.
