When I was one, I had just begun. When I was two, I was nearly new. When I was three, I was hardly me. When I was four, I was not much more. When I was five, I was just alive. But now I am six, I’m as clever as clever. So I think I’ll be six now for ever and ever.
Guest Blog photo shot, taken by Grandson Charlie, who’ll turn six on the 25th. Sunday afternoon I arrived for a visit and we were in the back seat while his mom drove. He asked if he could use my phone to take pictures. I deleted the close up ones of me but thought this shot taken from his car window was a good one.
Here’s a January 2019 photo. Grandson Charlie visiting at my house. He’s wearing a fleece footed sleeper that was a cozy favorite. Doesn’t take long for kids to outgrow their clothes, though.
In December 2020 my daughter sent the kitty footed sleeper to me with a request- could I make something special from it?
So I made doll pajamas, with the sleeve cuffs being the pants ankle cuffs now.
After I sewed the pjs, there was a lot of the sleeper leftover but I couldn’t see anything in my mind to make from it. The scraps hung around for 3 weeks. Then I got an idea. Yesterday I created Zippy the snake with the remainder. Stuffed a couple of knee socks with fiberfill and put them into the column I created to look like a snake. Now the snake can lose his skin with zero mess.
On to the post office tomorrow to get these mailed to Charlie. I’m hoping he likes the transformation.
Guest blogger today is grandson Jack (13) who used Slo-Mo to capture lightning in a storm the other night. He texted it to me so I uploaded it and am sharing it with you. It was an unexpected bright spot to receive the lightning.
