Mom's Creation

OMD - Mom was scaring me cuz yesterday she went to the fabric store.  Now the thing about mom is she can only do squares and rectangles.  No matter what she does . . . draw, sew, crochet, etc.  Just squares and rectangles.  I wasn't sure what she was up to but she kept saying it was Fiona and Abby's mom's fault.  What??  Aunt Dr. Liz's fault!  That made no sense at all!  So when mom came out of the store she had 2 little pieces of fabric.  (The one on the left actually has a black background.)

The next thing I knew mom was cutting a triangle.  What?  I reminded her she can NOT do triangles, just squares and rectangles.  But she was cutting, and sewing like a mad woman.  She said she was making something for me and Stanley.  She worked like crazy on it and when she finished I was shocked!


I tried mine on and it fit pawfectly!  Mom said we can't model it for you until closer to Halloween.


Now mom can do squares, rectangles AND triangles!  She said it was easy and now she is going to make us more bandanas for other holidays.  I guess you can teach an old peep new tricks!

Our Lady can't make anything, so you have a talented one who can make all those different shapes!

I am impressed!!! They are very cool.

Fiona, as typed by Dr. Liz said...

Very cool! And keep encouraging your Mom in this direction - much better to keep her mentals occupied with making bandanas (and clever ones that go on your collars!) than letting her mind wander toward such things as Yoda ears and reindog antlers. Trust me on this! They look great - we can't wait to see you modeling them! (And tell your Mom it's never too early to start preparing for Thanksgiving, and Christmas, and Valentine's Day...)

That's great-so impressive! Mamma is working on something for me but I'm too scared to see. I think she will be disappointed when I don't wear it. I can be pigheaded...

Your mom did a great job! We have martingale collars that slip over our heads so we can't use that kind of bandanna. Our mom said that the stores already have Halloween candy for sale so we think it's okay for you to model them.

With those bandanas for Halloween you two will be sure to attract a witch or two. Be careful when old peeps learn new tricks you never know what will happen next! Scary
Thanks for stopping by my blog

Wow, that's really cool! I totally love bandanas and the reversables are twice as fun. The ones that slip over your collar are great because they stay in place. You guys are gonna love these! Your peep did a wonderful job!
