I have to laugh-really laugh. My family is great although just doesn’t know what to do with me at times.
I asked them what they thought of my latest handmade gift.
Child #1: Yes, I think that anyone would be glad to get something handmade. Good job, Mom.
Child #2: What is it? (This is the same child if I ask about how my outfit looks she will respond-it depends -are you staying home or going out? Brutal honesty…from this child.)
Husband (wise and previously been through the” make a Christmas gift season”) : Who is this for? Any cookies this year? Have you thought about Christmas cards?
Child #2-It is a felted yarn basket. For you. Your only gift. What you have always wanted. To store your yarn. What every 16 year old wants.
Husband: No cookies this year. No Christmas card either. Make your own or start addressing cards.
Oh boy. Maybe there is a reason I stopped making gifts the month of Christmas.
Maybe I should of thought of it in July.
Happy Sewing, my fiends. No friends, that is. Way too late to be blogging…
