It was just a throw away comment.... "I'm making lots of things for me and the kids and nothing for you". Just an observation, said out loud. I didn't expect a reply and I certainly didn't except "Well make me something. Something to wear to the gig".
You might see this as a simple request for clothing. But oh no. It is much more. It is a sign of trust. A sign of faith. A sign of true love. You see, my Mr is in a band and they have a gig in a few weeks. So his "something to wear to the gig" is suggesting that I can make something that is not only wearable, but wearable in public and wearable on stage. Now do you see the trust, the faith, the true love!
So after much "are you serious?", we decided on some refashioning of a suit. I kinda figured I wouldn't find a suit in time so it sounded like a good deal. Well that afternoon, I found this on the 50 cents rack at the Op Shop.
And surprisingly, it fits him better than it fits me*! So a new deal has been struck. I'll have a go but I get the final decision as it whether this will totally rock or fade into blog-livion, never to be spoken of again.
*Yes, that is me, living out my rock star dreams. I reckon I've got the whole rock star pose under control. Fortunately for you, you can't hear either the way I "play" guitar or "sing"...!!!
