Works In Progress

I took these ten baggies of potential rolled flowers with me this last week thinking that I would be able to work on them during naptimes.  That didn't happen like I'd planned.  I only got to complete a few and some of those was with the "help" of my two grandchildren, ages 2 and 4.  Did you know that pins and needles are not good things around that age?  Yeah, so did I but I was very careful and so were they but I still found three pins on the floor that had escaped.  Yes, I'm a bad grandma, one who doesn't protect her grandchildren.  I'm gullible.  I actually want them to learn to be careful and follow my instructions and they really did well--except for the three straying pins. Sooo, I had to put them away and play "real toys" with them--Ohhh, poor me (smiling at the thought of the playtime.)  I have my work cut out for me tomorrow so I can have them in the shops by Monday.  I'm also waiting a contact from a girl who wants me to make headbands and/or jewelry for her wedding at the end of July--more roses, etc. to come!

H found another pin this evening. She said, "OH OH NO!!! Grandma left one of these things! It must have fallen out of that strawberry." :)

Oh, the sacred naptime, I remember that well! That was my crafting time too.
