How cute is this little lion? He’s not the only one, I might add; Dolls and Daydreams has all sorts of cuteness, from meerkats to dinosaurs (and no, I’m not getting paid to say that, nor do I know the shop owner).
Given that we’re anticipating the arrival of certain wee ones in the coming months (including a couple in December) I do so wish I could sew.
Now, I know what you’re thinking, Well, learn! If only it were that simple.
In Home Ec (back in the day) we were instructed on the fine art of sewing wind socks–straight forward, simple lines, peace of cake. At least it was a peace of cake for the roughly fifteen other students (including the two guys who signed up for the class to meet girls). Even with much assistance from one exasperated teacher, mine looked as though it had weathered a tornado or two. My mom, bless her heart, tried to act impressed with my efforts. She hung it above the front stoop for all the see . . . though it mysteriously disappeared soon after.
That said, I think it best I stick to buying my gifts.
Of course, you may recall, my lofty goal each and every year is to be completely done with gifts and cards by December 1. Did I finally accomplish this goal? Negatory, good buddy. I am, however, inching my way closer. So, while I may not be crafty, I am organized . . . at least I will be, one of these days.
And you–how are your Christmas preparations coming along?
