and just this weekend, TWO magazines have featured articles about Sue and her "Sibolettes"! I have only made a small number of squares but she has used them in her blankets. That is the amazing thing, she treats my little stash of squares with as much respect as when she receives a whole box full of them. This makes me so happy I can't believe it!
Everyone should have a nutty Aunt who makes them t-shirts! The year that I made this one, I also made a tiny little Lego cake which went down a treat! (See, it's not perfect, but it was fun to make it and my nephew seemed to like it.)
When I ever make anything in the kitchen that turns out even looking halfway decent, I always try to take a photo of it. More than anything, it has been to remind me that it is possible for me to cook or bake!
If I see any nice art or photographs of fruit or flowers, I cut them out and just kind of gently wedge them into my kitchen cabinets...I would much rather look at this rather than plain wood. You spend so much time in the kitchen, might as well look at something you like. You see, I am an artist trapped inside a working woman's body!
For years, I have made sugar cookies for Christmas. Do you see the bird shaped cookie? I got that cookie cutter for free with a woman's magazine, it was English, of course! Don't you just want to dive into those cookies?
What do you do that you are "in the moment" and time just flies by and you are amazed that you have spent so much enjoyable time that time itself seems suspended as if you are in a science fiction movie?
It's a wonderful place to be and I wish this for all who read this today! Enjoy your life and do what gives you joy.
