My daughter’s teacher is having a baby soon, and I’d had it in mind to give her a little gift. What I didn’t have in mind was that she might need to stop teaching a couple weeks earlier than planned. Doesn’t she know I procrastinate these things? She really could have consulted with me first. Or, you know, I could have possibly planned ahead a bit more. Ahem.
There was only a bit of panic. Not so much that I didn’t put it off another two days. Then we quickly chose a pattern from Mr. Funky’s Super Crochet Wonderful and some soft yarn, and I did a quick whip-up just days before Mrs. S.’s last day. The design was entirely kid-dictated; I was merely the
frantic humble crocheting hands.
These are the times when I’m thankful I have a bag of crafty tricks always in wait for an emergency gifting need. And it was sort of nice to make something again.
In fact, I made two somethings, as I needed a card too. But I’ll save that for the next post. When the crafty pickings are so slim, I have to stretch it out as much as I can, you know.
