A funny thing happened in the wee hours …
Last night was sleepover time for my grandson who will be 3 in July. Since we downsized in 2015, my sewing room is also the laundry room which was converted from a bedroom before we bought this house. It has great storage with two closets and a counter on top of the washer and dryer which was why I claimed this room before the ink was dry on the contract!
It also still serves as a bedroom for the wee man when we have sleepovers or naps during the day if I’m babysitting. We use his playpen and put it in the middle of the room. Trouble is his arms are growing in length. Imagine me finally enjoying some peace and quiet last night when I then heard “thump, thump, thump”. That was the distinct sound of the wool dryer balls tumbling in the now turned on but otherwise empty dryer. He’s a smart kid but Grandma isn’t too dumb either. So after a chat I moved the playpen further away from the dryer. Problem solved! Slumber was enjoyed by all until about 2 a.m. He doesn’t cry (usually) when he gets up in the night but he does chat, laugh and jump in his playpen. Party time! So I decided to attend to the little monkey to avoid waking the rest of the house (too late). This is what I saw when I opened the door:
Together the little boy and I sat on the floor to clean up the mess. I handed him the “big” ones for the “big” box and the “small” ones for the “small” box. I hope he learned that when we make a mess we need to tidy it up.
But a funny thing happened in the process. Grandma got inspired to dig out these squares and use them! I’m going to design my next pattern based on this fabric vomit on my floor and see what kind of trouble I can get into. Wish me luck!
Oh…and he’s now napping (not in my sewing room LOL) and I’m writing this post. And then back to sorting my scraps again.
Happy Sunday everyone! I hope you are also playing with fabric. 💝😃
Until next time,
