Walk like an Egyptian!

I have been helping to make costumes for the school musical, which has a decidedly Egyptian theme. Two performances down, two to go! It has been lots of fun. Joining a handful of other mothers, and taking on the task of making 150 costumes is a surefire cure for my perfectionist tendencies! There was some pretty rough sewing happening - LOL! By the end, my mantra had become: "If you can't see it from Row P, it will be just fine"! The costumes looked great en masse ... ... and the pure joy on the children's faces as they dressed up and performed made it all worthwhile.

  1. It must feel very rewarding to sit back and watch the performance when you have contributed in such a way. A job well done.
