However, when one has grandchildren, one must do something!! My 2 year old grandson is obsessed with dinosaurs! I follow Pasture Deficit Disorder on Facebook and her husband is an amazing woodworker!! I ordered a set of 5 dinosaurs from her and she sent them directly to my daughter for me!!
Last spring I tested a pattern for Tammy at https://www.tamarinis.com/. She designs fabulous paper pieced patterns and I had fun with this one...except I did have to employ Jack the Ripper a few times!!! I used one of the blocks I made to make a table topper for a dear friend who was at my first birthday party!! We have been friends a very long time and I cherish that friendship!!
My two granddaughters...well, they were to be with their dad during the first week of Christmas vacation, so I wasn't too worried about mailing the few things I had for them early. That all changed. On Thursday, 12-19-19, their dad was having surgery to re-attach a muscle he had ripped off the bone (his pec). At 38, he had a heart attack on the table and didn't survive. So their world has turned upside down. I am so very sad that I can't go to be with them...at 12 and 6, I feel like they need lots of support from loving family!! I hope these two little stuffies, made and filled with love, will help them, even just a little!
May you be blessed with the presence of those you love as you celebrate the holidays.
Merry Christmas and may God bless each of you in the coming year.
