Happy New Year!
The song title is actually, "Anything YOU can do I can do better". But I don't mean to compete with anyone. I only have myself to compete or challenge with, if at all. Just to better myself. I want to sew better. I want to sew faster. I want to stay on track with my sewing project better this year. So, when I was thinking about that, I was reminded of the song, "Anything
My son and I both do music. Separately for the most part. Yet, this past summer, we had the opportunity to do a duet. We were asked to sing together. I was certain my teenage son would say, "Are you out of your mind, mother?!?!" However, his answer -- "Sure."
Anyhow. I had just found this gorgeous black/green lame vintage suit and so I planned to wear it for the show. We needed a matching something for my son's costume. Men's stage costumes are tricky. What do you do?! Ties. Different colors of ties. That's about it. I went looking for a tie that would match my vintage suit. I couldn't find any.... I thought about making one, but couldn't find an appropriate fabric for it either. I was getting desperate.
Just the night before the show, I found a green tie at a local Goodwill. But it wasn't flashy enough. At the same store, I found a green pillow case with sequins pattern. Heeeeyy!
The sequins area of the pillow case was just barely long enough for the front of the tie. Just cut it up and I hand sewed it on to the tie.
How is that, matching with my vintage suit??
Well, I'm a happy, lucky, and proud mama. I didn't think I would be dueting with my son!
Wishing you the very best of everything, most of all, a healthy and happy new year!
Oh, and here is the duet!
