This woman (Anne B.) who goes to church with me had heard I was making this costume and actually bought the pattern for me. She and I studied it on Sunday and she taught me what horsehair was, which I need 8 yards, who has ever heard of horsehair. What is so funny is when I was at Joann's to buy it, 2 employees told me "We don't have that" of course I was not going to trust the 16 year old girl who is butchering my fabric as she cuts it. So I went and found it myself.
Anyway, I had bought this fabric for the skirt that goes from light to dark thinking it would look so different. Well, I figured out tonight I didn't have enough and had bought the rest of the bolt so there was no going back to the store. I sat in basement tonight and cried. I then went upstairs and sat and the couch and cried to my husband. My husband then went on the internet and found a costume and got ready to buy it online. Then Anne called me to see how I was doing (I had left her a desperate message on the phone) she came right over helped me cut out every last piece, found a way to make the fabric work. She is having me come over once I am ready to put the invisible zipper in for me. She is truly the sewing fairy!
It is 10:48pm and she just left. I can not begin to know how to thank her! She talked me off the cliff tonight for sure. I am amazed at her willingness to help me. I am unbelievably grateful tonight.
As she left my home she loved seeing and touching all my ribbon. I was making special note of the ones she loved the most, because they will make a perfect thank you for her willingness to help.
Service is such a good thing!
