You all are such a wonderful community of bloggers! Thank you all for your kind comments. I needed that after feeling beaten up.
A very wise friend of mine gave me a dialogue to practice for a repeat of being told I suck as a parent. Basically, my job is to ignore the person talking and offer them bean dip… do you think I need to actually have bean dip to make that work? Heh!
I am trying to get back to more regular blogging. (No, really, I’m serious!) This past week, I have had some strange physical weirdness (ok, it is probably a stomach virus). I haven’t done much crafting at all. In fact, I’m in bed at least 11 hours a night, and I’m still not feeling very good. I have been really dizzy and that doesn’t lend itself to sewing or knitting. So today I see two doctors… it will be naturopathic doctor vs. conventional doctor. I’m thinking they will have completely different approaches, no?
This is the fireman jacket I made for BC last year. He has opted to be a fireman this year as well. The jacket isn’t as crisp and pretty as shown above, it now looks like it has been through a few fires. Very authentic.
The jacket was a bit big last year. It fits him perfectly this year. After he tried it on, BC looked up at me with his big brown eyes, and asked, “When I grow out of this one, will you make me another?”. Yes, I will! I love this boy.
