I was in my studio this weekend, working on a little project for the birthday of one of my favorite superheros.
My workdesk looked like this:
I love generous bloggers who freely share their wonderfulness, too.
Other things I love are...
...the free and generous supply of old blueprints I use for drafting patterns, and...
...finding the fabric I need for cheap (sometimes in the form of a pillowcase) at the thrift store.
I love to applique (since UnderWonder and Heat'nBond were invented).
And I really love little boys.
I got to thinking about little boys while I was working on this reversible cape.
And I got to remembering the little boys who wore the superhero capes I made in the past.
They really believed they were soaring when they jumped (off the couch??) with their capes on.
They really believed they could run faster in their new "fast shoes".
I just love that about children.
And I'm wondering if there isn't something to the idea that performance really is affected by the way we dress.
I don't think it would be a difficult job at all to make a Gwen-size superhero cape.
And, maybe, if I wore one, I would have super powers to help me see - and do something about - the things that are being neglected while I sew superhero capes.
Maybe, just maybe, if I was SuperGwen...
...I could save a life.
