See this motley crew? They’ve been keeping me so busy I can’t think straight. In the past 2 days I made 2 kitties, 1 dawg, 1 pig, and half of a chicky. The reason for this sudden spurt of softies is a YMCA bazaarmy daughter in-law just heard about. She wants us to share a booth; she’ll peddle her jewelry while I try to fob off my critters to whoever will have them. The catch is that we have only 6 days until the bizarre. Six days!
On top of this, I just learned my other daughter in-law is returning to work a month early, so I may be watching my granddaughter full-time beginning this week. I’m not sure how that’s going to work, trying to keep an eye on her and sew my softies. Hope I don’t try embroidering her arm or anything. You may laugh, but I was so beat the other day that I kept imagining there was something wrong with my thimble. There really was something wrong with it, as it turns out, because I was using the thimble from an old Monopoly game I’d bought at a garage sale. How it got into my sewing basket I don’t know or care. Most of you know what it’s like having things turn up in odd places. So let’s not even go there. Let’s just say that I’m colorful and my, wasn’t that just like me to try sewing with a Monopoly thimble!
