Miss me? The past few weeks have been crazy busy, and I haven’t had much time to sew. Hopefully I’ll have something to show later today or tomorrow. And what have we been busy with, you ask? Kid stuff! Our high school is putting on “Hairspray”, and both my sons are leads. DS the Elder plays Corny Collins
DS the Younger plays Link Larkin
Proud mama that I am, I think my boys both did a phenomenal job. The entire cast is wonderful. We are lucky to have an excellent music program in our school system. All the leads were great, and some were real standouts, including Motormouth Maybelle, Penny Pingleton, Velma von Tussle, Tracy Turnblad and my personal favorite, Edna Turnblad. Congratulations to all of the cast and crew! You should all be very, very proud.
