fantasies

Monday January 21, 2013

OK, we all have them. Come on now... fess up...

fantasies... dreams....daydreams...hopes... delusions.... ehem... call them what you will.

Young mom's have them.... you know the ones....being able to take a long shower...... or just plain go to the bathroom without a "mommmmmy" call at the door ....someone else changing that diaper for you....or perchance to sleep and not have to wake up every 2 hours to feed that new born bundle of.... oh how I miss those days...

So picture this... a gorgeous mansion by the sea... backing right onto a beach (private of course)... oh let's just go ahead and make it my own personal island, what the heck... complete with butler , personal chef, housekeeper, Fabio the gardener.. chocolate at my beckon call ....oh and don't forget the huge walk-in shower with jets in all directions... uh.. never mind....

Of course the separate craft room where you store all your craft supplies... neatly displayed on shelves and drawers... big work tables, large windows with comfy seats....every single pattern, floss, kit, fabric ever invented at your fingertips....uh, yeah, that's one mighty big craft room...

Have you ever wondered about having a super power? The thought tumbled in my mind as we drove home tonight after watching a movie - "Rise of the Guardians". When I first heard the title, it sounded like medieval fantasy thriller. It's actually a cute, funny movie - staring the original super heroes - Jack Frost, North, Tooth, Bunnymund, Sandman... the cute little elves kind of stole the show... 

Here's one of my favourite stuffies from a time when I still believed... 


That's one well loved bunny.


Back to the movie - of course there's the evil villain - Pitch the Boogeyman. 

I distinctly recall a time where I still believed in these characters. In particular the boogeyman.... once when a dear older sibling (of course while parental units were out for the evening), locked me out of the bedroom, into a dark hallway and in a sinister voice called through the door, those famous words all older siblings know ......."The Boogeyman's gonna get you".... funny how you look up to older siblings... I still wonder why I just didn't turn the hallway light on....

But I digress.... what would it be.... to fly... be invisible... super strong....to be able to transport... see through walls... oh... how about being able to freeze time?

Oh can you imagine? ....all the stitching and crafting time in the world .... speaking of stitching.... can you believe I did NOT finish my project I started last night. I had visions... ok fantasies of having another one done to post here tonight... but alas... lack of sleep catches up to you sooner or later.

Now there's a thought.... to not ever have to sleep! All that stitching time... might even make a dent in my stash... and then I'd have to visit Gitta's! whoo hooo....   

Well, without further ado, I give you my own very special vintage super hero....


Super Banana!

What? You've never heard of him???

A relic from my university days....
 ... but that's another story.

QUILTING IS BLISSFUL, DI said...

My fantasy would be to never run out of the necessary things--at the end of the month like toliet paper and chocolate!!!!
but the one that you hit on I have thought of at times==and that is not sleeping so we can get more stitching done--but then I might get boring!lol
Hugs, Di and miss gracie the cat
