I love my Mother-I really do-
but there are times that I think she is a little bit off her rocker!
Mom has always had a passion for sewing, I don't think any big event in my life as a child ever included a store bought dress. Graduations, proms, dances -
all beautifully dressed in my Mother's wonderful creations.
Recently, she has been creating costumes for the local theatre groups.
Some shows are easy, some are not.
I have no idea the true number of hours she puts into the effort
but I'm pretty sure it is substantial.
I try to help when I can but I donated my sewing machines to her sweat shop -
plus I can barely sew a straight line with a ruler.
I generally get "elastic" duty. I sew a little pocket for the elastic and thread it in.
That is about as far as I can be trusted when it comes to sewing!
The latest play she is costuming is The Producers.
I helped make the jewelry for the Little old ladies and the girls in pearls.
I stitched some sausages onto a belt and sewed on some snaps.
Mom - she created about 300+ costume pieces - I feel like such a slacker!
Here are some shots from the first act of the final dress rehearsal.
I wish I could have stayed for the second act!
Mom, you are A-M-A-Z-I-N-G-L-Y talented and I am so proud to show off your work!
The Girls with the Pearls - lovingly handsewn on!
I love the pigeons!
The dress really does look like the Chrysler Building!
Yes, it is a giant knitted g-string!
That is a lot of Little Old Ladies!
I can't wait to see the rest of the play!
Break a leg! I'm sure it will be wonderful!
