And sew a chicken.
Yeah, once in a while I like to shake things up a bit, break out the sharp implements, and flex my mind’s elbow in a different way.
So I sew.
Most of the time, I quilt – but please don’t get the impression that I’m some kind of quilting queen.
I’m actually not very good.
And I’m a little slow – so, I only sew baby quilts.
Thus far, my lifetime quilt tally totals only 3 ½.
Um… and the future “baby” recipient of quilt number ½ is, well…
10 years old.
Yeah, I consider it my finest piece
But, Mark, if you’re reading this – that quilt is all yours when you head off to college, for sure!
Um, and while I’m at it – Luke, we need to talk. I’m thinking that by the time you’re a grandpa…
Anyway, I just wanted to say that it’s okay
Or fiddle around.
It’s good to stretch those creative muscles in a different way once in a while.
And this week I decided that chickens were just the thing.
So I sewed…
a cheeky, chicky set of juggling balls.
Because, admit it –
you’ve always wanted to juggle poultry.
Okay, maybe that’s just me.
PROMPT: Do a little dabbling in a different way this weekend. Stretch that mind’s elbow of yours – and next week you’re sure to find more room in there for all the creative work you love.
