Kits

I recently took Madam P shopping to celebrate the end of the school year. She received 4 awards including one for exceeding the standard in the class, (all year) and the standard on her MEA'S (Maine Education Assessments) from the national "No child left behind" policy. Yeah! I thought that meant more than a ice cream trip.



One of our favorite things to do is rummage around in the odd ball shops, small trading places, hospital auxiliary stores, etc. Madam found something exclusively her own. A one paneled kit. It's a cute one.

This is what caught her eye, a topsy turvy doll and she immediately bugged me to buy it for her. Well, this shop has a dresser full of sewing items and on this day, one drawer was full of patterns. Every doll, and Christmas ornament for the eyes to behold! I put her off for a few minutes.





She was so excited and impatient, she kept asking over and over if she could have it.



After I selected my ten patterns at 99 cents apiece, I looked at her panel, it had a PUMPKIN on it. What!?!







Okay, peasant Cinderella with pleasant Cinderella, prince charming, fairy godmother, and the pumpkin with a working door! Yes, you can have it.





Good thing she found my stuffing bag....C&G Design.

Great job Madam! On the awards of course. The pattern is cool too.

That sure did warrant more than an ice cream trip. What a great find for her. Have fun doing it Madam and hang onto it for your kids in another 25 years.

Hi guys,
Jack of all trades had a dentist appt. this am and his truck is in the shop. Yeah, she sure did enjoy this panel, she also got a latch hook which she seems to be sticking too.

I'm giving her her own way and just answering questions, she gets whiny when I try to show her. That's how I learned and apparently she is.....just double crochet two days ago after two months!I'M GIVING TOOLS!!! That's it.
