Those little darlins had strategically planted an electronic "Fart Machine" under my chair when I was out of the room before school. Geniuses, I tell you... I'm working with young geniuses, here! Gotta give 'em credit; that was good! Many chuckles were had those first two periods of school.
Almost funnier was third period, which is my prep. I was sitting alone in my room, working, and every once in a while another "pfhhht" would erupt. Even when they were across the hall, thoroughly absorbed in their history class, my little sweet potatoes were thinking of me! Kinda warms the cockels of your heart, don't it?!?
Since I'm here I might as well post pics of a couple more FO's. I'd made and felted this bag quite some time ago, but recently needed it for a gift so I knit up some flowers to brighten it up a bit.
Started out like this...
Ended up like this...The flowers were a royal pain in the tush, as I had to cut away large chunks and sew through many tough layers of felted wool to get them into shape. Took me three hours to get the flowers put together and attached to the bag. The good news is, she loved it! I now have three friends walking around town with these bags sporting unseemingly large flowers, but they love them. They say lots of others do to, and if I would "make up a bunch" for them to carry around they could sell them for me, easy peasy! Who knew.
A few swaps ago I received the BEST tape measure from Chan, and knew I just had to figure out how to make them. At the time I didn't know where to get them. Anyhow, these are the little guys I came up with, and they were fun to make. Quick and easy!
There are now indications that spring may come to North Dakota this year after all. Not too much snow left any more, and it was warm today... upper 30's. (Stop it.... that's not funny!!) Well, my doggies wanted to be out in the yard a bit, so I let them. I told them not to go where it's wet, but apparently they didn't 'hear' me. Came in with all eight of their snow-white feel drenched in mud, with tufts of last years dried grass sticking out from between their toes. Their punishment: Can't be in the livingroom with Mommy (and VERY light carpet) until the piggies are clean. Must stay in the family room. Life's tough when you're the family dogs!
