Of Fabric and Thread and Buttons and Beads

The fabric paints are ready,

the felt neatly stashed in preparation for bonnets and fascinators.

Yes, I still find some of my clothes

in desperate need of revamping.

What do I need to make? Oh, plenty…

An obi belt,

a new sweater front,

stretch opera-length gloves,

a support slip with feather fringe…

shorts with lace trim…

I could go on all day,

but you get the idea.

Gotta drag myself

to some discount fabric stores in NYC

where I can get

fabric and thread and buttons and beads –

feathers and lace and silicone gripping, too…

the kind you can’t buy at

Ye Olde 99-Cent Store.
