Rain and Capes

Here in Minnesota we are supposed to get five day's of rain. Most people would balk at this and despair about the rainy weather. If you know me well, you know that I love thunderstorms. Now don't get me wrong after the bitter winter, I could use some warm 70 degree sunny days. On the other hand as long as I have a hot drink and a cozy home, give me a good thunderstorm any day. So five days of falling asleep to drizzly wonderfulness sounds awfully nice. The only thing that would make it better would be to be able to share a teabag with my husband.

My latest project wasn't actually my project. My 11 year old brother in law pestered me for a while to help him make a cape. I finally relented and his mom and I picked out an old black shirt and an old green pillowcase to upcycle. We cut off the sleeves and front, sewed on the green lining from the pillowcase, finished the edges, and added velcro.

He loves it because with the collar down he is a good guy, and with the collar up, he is a bad guy. Imagination nation. Although, I think it will be a while before I start my next project with a young person. My patience is only so thick.
