ANON FROM LAST NIGHT: I will be nice and say you are entitled to your opinion... cos you are.
But, I do believe having some HARMLESS fun is nothing to be going off the deep end about.
I am sure there are millions of Dad's out there who are as much FUN to have around as our Steve is. What he did was in the privacy of his own home, and therefore perfectly fine by us.
Moving on... I stayed up until almost 11.30 pm last night... I got stuck in and made two placemat tops. I must say, I am loving doing 'true blocks' again! I love the challenge of getting all the seams to align perfectly!
I don't always get that, but I consider myself a novice still... so I've plenty of time to get it right every time.
I finished two tops :
Those are 12 inch blocks with two 3 inch strips down the sides to make them rectangle Placemats.
I am suddenly thinking... Wonder if I can make round ones?
I've not tried that yet...
Griffin was rather pleased last night, Bex made him a 'sack man' :
ABOVE: I'm still amazed at how fast those two have picked up crochet! I'm ALMOST tempted to give it a go... but I'll resist. I am loving my sewing too much to add another thing into my repertoire of crafts.
Today? Well Steve, Bex and Dante are out for the day... and I'm not sure if we have any plans to go out and about. I'm hoping we just stay home and relax.
Stew is working this afternoon at the Baby Show, so it will just be me and the kids home alone. lol
I don't mind, B & G are usually pretty good at amusing themselves now days. I'm going to sew... even though it's FREEZING in the garage.
Further to Anon's comment last night: Steve is a fantastic son/partner/Dad... we are incredibly proud of him.
There's not too many young men who are happy to stay home with the family, take up crochet to share his partner's interests, and spend every moment he can with his baby and fiance.
I would like to also let you know that my HUSBAND STEW used to 'moon' his Mum too!
Yep, that pillar of society, Manager of Public Trust Auckland Central is a fun-loving bloke too. And I would have him no other way.
Heard the saying "Like Father, Like Son"?
ANON: I did make it public didn't I? Silly me. But, you only got an 'edited' version... I did kinda bleep out his butt crack! Whatever, no harm done as far as I'm concerned.
It's not often that I keep getting comments on a post from the day before! Obviously quite a few felt the desire to have their say after ANON'S comment about Steve. Thanks.
End of Day: quite a quiet day, which was nice. Got some more sewing done, and more in my mind for tomorrow.
