You must do the thing you think you cannot do.”

“You gain strength, courage and confidence by every experience in which you really stop to look fear in the face. You are able to say to yourself, 'I have lived through this horror. I can take the next thing that comes along.'

You must do the thing you think you cannot do.”

Eleanor Roosevelt

Happy Halloween!!!


After much coaxing, Grant finally agreed
to put on the Halloween costume that I made him.

DRAGON along

A dragon lives forever but not so little boys.
(lyric, Puff the Magic Dragon)
We all know that I don't have to look far for an excuse not to finish a project. Any one will do. With the holidays fast
approaching I find myself sidetracked once again. You see my 3 year old grandson Grant has requested a green dragon costume with orange spikes for Halloween. How could I say no? I couldn't, even though I had just begun making progress with my latest unfinished project;  the "Tee Shirt Bag".  Yes the "Tee Shirt Bag".( my 2008 grand idea to turn special old tee shirts into pocketbooks. Laugh now but when you see my old Three Dog Night concert tee shirt transformed into a funky messenger bag you too will scour your closet and drawers in search of the perfect tee to do the same. )
     That said, I quickly abandoned the bag and went to work on the costume. I have loved every minute that I have spent sewing that costume. The bright green fleece with orange trim will be colorful and warm for Halloween night. Grant's excitement is uncontainable and so is mine. I can't wait to see it on him.
 Lets face it,  life is too short,  kids grow too fast and
 Three Dog Night
 can wait.
