He Who Celebrates a Birthday
Tiny bunnies. Made from infant socks. Hard to see their little faces and French knot eyes. These are my favorites.
Toddler socks turned out cute, too. This little guy is disabled, born without eyes. Cruel? No. As a little girl I would always choose the dolls with imperfections .... they needed me.
Another toddler sock and a big girl sock. They have button eyes. This is what I do when I can no longer brush paint on the wall. I have made over 2 dozen and I was going through my button stash looking for just the right sets when it occurred to me that buttons were choking hazards .....
Since my grands are all past that stage, I don't think about it as much. But I decided to do the rest with French knot eyes. Safer. I didn't use buttons on my sock monkeys either. They have "X" eyes.
No sewing today. No painting today. Today marks 61 years of life for He Who is loved by me. There will be cake, for sure. I haven't decided what kind yet. I was leaning towards a chocolate concoction, but I just found some recipes for peanut butter cakes. If he loves anything more than chocolate, it is peanut butter. I should buy it in those giant containers, but that would deprive his favorite pup of her favorite treat/toy (empty peanut butter jars). No waste.
I am off to the grocery. We are out of peanut butter!
