Cleaning closet surprise
Once upon a time I crocheted 6 teddy bears. The bear family was the start of a baby blanket. Then life happened and the bears were tucked away and thought to be lost for 20 years. Yesterday, in an attempt to organize our closet, I found the bear family. They were in a little chest with things I saved from my children's newborn period.
The are kind of goofy. I have no intention of crocheting more. Maybe I'll knit some squares and join them for a baby to be.
It was a very fun find. There was so much stuff on my bed and on the floor that I could barely have room to nap.
When I awoke, it was dark, because it is dark by 4 pm here in Chicago this time of year. I tripped over the little chest going to shut off my alarm clock. Initally I thought I broke my big toe. Now I think I will just lose the nail. I swear I didn't even swear. I was so relieved that landed on my feet somehow, that I was too grateful to swear.
I'll bet those bears had a good laugh after being in the chest for 20 years. Any ideas for them?
I'll talk to you in the comments. :)
