service with a smile

Its amazing how fast i can get volunteered for things. My mom had mentioned that i was very talented thus i write this. Sure, i know how to sew but does that mean i can build upto 15 costumes from now until Dec 12? I'm not sure. There is only one of me and i'm hoping to delegate some work to volunteers but, i'm not that great at delegating this type of thing. I was thinking of cutting all the costumes out and having my volunteers sew them up but, how well will they know my patterns?

I guess what it all really comes down to is......will i have enough time to get it all done. Technically it wasn't all supposed to be my responsibility i was just a stitching volunteer. Now I am making 12 full dresses and 2-3 childrens costumes of various sizes. Ah Yes, i don't even know what sizes i will be making these lovely garments. What are they for you may ask? Well, they are for my church. Every year they have the feast of the Immaculate Conception and Dia de La Virgen de Guadalupe. So I am making costumes for the play that will be performed. I just hate to be that person who volunteers then doesn't come through. I am not that person. So early tomorrow I am off to go pick up fabric and designs then, we'll see how they come out.

    I arrived here via the NaBloPoMo Randomizer--looks like you have a lot going on! Best of luck with the costumes; I'm sure they'll be fabulous :)
