While I was working on a project in the craft room one day, my followers found me and settled in to work also. Andrew, in the making of a rhinocerous picture on the floor out of scrap fabrics and string. But CORYNN, she was determined to work on a REAL project.
I wish I could say I happily obliged and set my work aside with a smile. I smiled and set my work aside, of course, but inwardly I groaned "UGH! The MOMENT I want to work on a project...I have to help THEM with THEIR projects. THIS is why I can never get anything done!" There. Never say this blog just shows the beautiful and good. Because my attitude was not beautiful or good at the time.
But I shoved those feelings aside while mustering a cheerful countenance (on the outside) and set Corynn to work making a bib from the same pattern I was using.
This project was start to finish-hers. Of course, it involved embroidery. And choosing her own fabrics. But this time, she traced the pattern herself.
I was there to guide and direct, encourage and teach. That's it.
Funny. Though I sacrificed my small window of opportunity to work on my own project, I was later given a larger window (during rest time) that allowed me to start and FINISH my own project. I still haven't figured out how that worked...
So what was she making?? And for whom???
