The sewing machine has been whirring away for a week now-and my projects have outgrown my teeny craft room table. The dining room table has looked like THIS for a week now, and it reminds me of what it was like at our old house-when I didn't have a crafty room.
I can't share all the projects just yet, as some are top-secret...but all will be revealed in time. Here is one to tide you over.
In preparation for our airplane flight and Indianda adventure, I decided I should like to make something special for each of the children to get them even more excited and to make even MORE special, their time on the plane.
Corynn told me, the moment she heard about the plane, that "Laura has always wanted to FLY on a plane!" so I guess, in order to make a doll's dreams come true, she is going to have to come too. Hopefully, she will be considered a lap baby... :-) Anyway, the only mode of transportation for Laura is a big and bulky (and held together only by Velcro) backpack. Each of the children are allowed ONE backpack for the plane, so the doll backpack wouldn't do. I made Corynn a sling for Laura instead, that way it could roll up small and snug and fit in her backpack when it wasn't in use.
Laura is her most treasured baby...bought by Nanny and Poppy at Christmastime two years ago. She is sweeter than sweet for a baby doll and once made very convincing baby sounds to boot. It has been so long since Laura cooed and giggled, that I wonder if Corynn even remembers that she is capable of doing them again (if only her innards were replaced!) She is a silent child to me-but to Corynn she is quite animated. Imaginations are wonderful things.
I realize how offensive this photo is, with overwhelmingly busy patterns and clashing reds and pinks...if I were smarter, I would have planned it better. OR, if I cared...
Dutchie heard the ruckus and came bounding up. She's a good dog and we love her~even when she comes bounding up carrying all the dead mice we've been throwing in the woods.
I won't tell you how many. It will spoil your image of us.
I also made Panda a little something for the plane~ a crayon roll. But for the life of me, I couldn't find it to take a picture.
I better hurry up and get looking for it-only THREE more days left!
