Space Girl

I bought Hilary Lang's Space Boy and Robot Put-together pattern book as soon as she listed it for sale. The kids decided they'd like to have a space boy first, and set to work picking their fabrics. I'm almost done with Sam's as well.

I'm sure we'll be doing robots after we get back from NY in January :)

ps, here's Sam's

Charlotte's Web

I finally finished reading Charlotte's Web to my kids tonight. I had to hand the book to my 7yo to read the final paragraph. I was crying too hard. He sort of chuckled at me, but his 4.5 yo sister was asking "what happened, what's wrong" since I was crying.

I told her that I wasn't crying because someone hurt my feelings. I was crying because Wilbur loved Charlotte so much, she was his best friend, and he would always miss her. I was crying because it is sad, and I was about to tell her it was a joyful type of sad, because their friendship was a wonderful thing, when she exclaimed "Then don't read it!"

Goodness, it's been a while

I think about this blog a lot. Still not sure what I want it will be--just for me, or for others as well. I'm trying just to say 'evs' and just make it for me.

I'm doing a lot of crafting lately. My felt bag still awaits its handles, and the scarf I started crocheting is lying dormant. But, I've made one doll for my nephew who just turned one, have almost finished a cape for my niece, and am starting on a spacegirl doll for my daughter. The fabric for my son's spaceboy is cut out. If I have time I will also make one for my aunt's grandson, so I have something to give him when we go to NY. And I'd love to make a waldorf style mermaid for my daughter. We'll see; if I keep going like I have tonight I can finish everything.
