Hamilton Lyrics

My current MOST FUN PROJECT is to Frankensew some Hamilton shirts.
I found this shirt in my stash...but the words weren't exactly right.
So, I used a marker to write the words, and some hem tape to iron on the Hamilton lyric
Lilly's outfit for the Hamilton Women Lunch.
With Sandy, one of her honorary Grandmothers.
The berry pie had strawberries, blueberries, rhubarb...it was GREAT.
Lilly loved learning more about Peggy Schuyler.

Linda P. and her daughter Kim bought "single seats" for this performance months ago. Long after they had planned their trip, I invited myself along on their Chicago/Hamilton adventure....and I bought the LAST seat in the theater. It was clearly marked "obstructed views" -- but it was still $167. Which, come to find out, is quite a bargain!!

Hamilton has completely taken over my life. I listen to the music for two or three hours every day. Lilly has made it her mission to learn all the words...and when we get in the car, Warren, from his seat in the back, always says, "can we play Hamilton, Grandma?" We drum along, with chopsticks (Warren uses a toothbrush)...and turn it up REALLY LOUD...then we sing along..

How does a bastard, orphan, son-of-a-whore, dropped...
In New York City you can be a new man...
Here comes the General...
You will never be satisfied...
Rise up! Tell your brother that he's gotta rise up...tell your sister...
If you stand for nothing Burr, what will you fall for?
We'll teach them how to say Goodbye...
Are you out of your Goddamn mind?(Lilly especially enjoys the songs containing curse words)
You need your right hand man back...

I woke up this morning, thinking I should jump in the shower before John does...and before my feet hit the floor, my brain was saying...

"How does a rag tag volunteer army in need of a shower defeat a global super power?"


  1. Sounds like my house! Jim is always singing Hamilton! And he can really sing! Now that the Tony Awards have happened, he is showing interest in a couple of other musicals too.

  2. I didn't forget about the finished quilts, Laura! THEY ARE AMAZING..!! But I can't put up any pictures until my friend has presented them to her girls...(next weekend).
