hmmm

001

Have you ever made something with good intentions then spent way too much time on it only to have the tension on your sewing machine eat a hole into it as you were sewing the last stitches so you use fabric glue and glued felt cowboy boots on it to cover the holes-that-made-you-almost-cry, then stood back and wonder if you even like what you made?

Molly says she loves owls (though her sister says she only likes owls because SHE liked owls first) and she said she liked the owl shirt even though I told her she could just wear it to bed if she wants, but really I believe she really does like owls because they are kind of trendy and kids usually like trendy things, and truthfully I don’t always like it when my kids like trendy things but in this case whoooooo cares, it’s just an owl.

how sweet! I don't care if owls are trendy- I liked them before they got trendy... ;)

Have you ever read "Owl at Home"?

Cute owl shirt! well done, the boots look fine but that must have one frustrating moment- its always just at the end those things happen! Often too its when we are doing somehing we want to be especially nice for someone else.

I think it's cute! I love when I can find a way to cover up my mistakes and it looks even better than it would have if I hadn't messed it up.
