My daughter is a senior in high school. You'd think I'd be finished helping with school projects, but you'd be wrong. I don't know why I believed that things would get easier as she got older. The projects have only gotten more complicated. Students have one project each quarter (per class) and each project has to have a "creative component" in which the students can do just about anything they want - videos, power point presentations, dramatizations - whatever. Daughter and her partner decided to make a mannequin of Linda Loman, the wife of Willy Loman in "Death of a Salesman". My part was to sew an apron that conveyed Linda's role as the supportive, yet enabling wife. My daughter selected a pattern that reminded her of the Lucy Ricardo-type housewife. It was actually fun to work on the apron. Since I'm allergic to kitchens, it's doubtful that I ever would have needed made an apron under any other circumstances. They bought the dress and blouse at a thrift shop. I'm a little sorry there wasn't more for me to sew. It would have been fun to dress a fictional character!
