My visit with my sister Claudia and her husband Don has come to an end. How come work weeks go so slow but visits with your sister wiz by at the speed of sound? It was great, each and every minute of it was great. It is so nice to have a sister that you feel is an extension of you. Well to be honest a better extension of you. I sort of feel like I am missing an important body part with her gone. That will ease up as the days go by, it always does, but it is still a pretty prominent feeling right now. Now remember I have one sister that has not been in contact with Claudia or I for years, even through my parents illnesses and deaths, so it isn't like I don't understand that siblings aren't all fabulous. I think that is what makes my relationship with Claudia even more sweet, we know what the dark side of sisterhood is all about.
I know one little boy that is going to be pretty sad when he returns home from school and therapy today. He had the best time ever! He wowed his aunt and uncle with all his skills, learned new songs how to play the ukulele, and had them run frantically outside several times a day to practice fire drills. He kept them laughing and very, very busy. I bet they need to go home just to rest.
The whole time they were visiting I was working on Lovey Lamb a pattern by the famous Alicia Paulson of posie gets cozy blog fame. She is an amazing designer, many of you have made her Maggie Rabbit. Her newest designs are this sweet lamb and a bunny. When she had them ready I ordered mine right away, well you know my sheep obsession. This pattern was fun to make and very easy. Based on these pictures I should have stuffed mine more, but it is what it is. I did order the yarn to go with it, but after making the first one decided to make another with a little bit softer yarn. The first one was going to be for me, and the second for Little Buddy...............
But he just might have other plans. He calls this his Toad-da-roe or something like that. We have yet to figure out what he is talking about. And just in case you are wondering he called it his new favorite toy, ah well, maybe number two will be for me!
I will catch up with all of you this weekend.
