You may remember I posted a few months back about my first multi-craft (crochet,sewing & embroidery) doorstop here called the TOWER and that my daughter took a liking to it ,which left me with no doorstop for our bedroom.
Understandably that meant I had to make another one!
I made up a shape ( I go by the first shape to determine what it is going to be) and I thought it could be a fat cat and so I made a fat head...Cheshire cat style...thinking I'd give it a large grin of course too. However I got half way with it and I realized I totally hated it and therefore rejected it .... I was so annoyed after all the hours cutting it out and sewing it up and even stuffing the thing ... I literally kicked it away from me......sort of real artist frenzy like. Even Sr P said to me "what's the matter with you?" I couldn't tell him it was so idiotic! Then my imagination started its merry go round and there I was imagining and thinking what if it gets to talking to the other toys and gadgets in the house at night ....you know like in Toy Story. "She's a real bitch...she kicked me" grumble! grumble!. I would be the cruelest human in the world in their books. I mean I could be had up by the WSPT (World Society for Protection of Toys) . Could it be settled with a public apology!!! .....my reflection in my microwave door brought me back down to earth. I think my next utterance was more or less ...you twit...woman...wakey...wakey!
Who for goodness sake leaves the door open to those dimensions?
Right well...back to a normal me I decided to use the scraps from said fiasco and made up another doorstop which met with Sr P's approval and more or less with mine.
Meet RIGBY :
Funnily enough we had a bit of hesitance and " who the hell are you" stare from His gloriousness Willie Shakespeare, our cat . He sat in front of Rigby for awhile and pondered and then just sauntered by into the bedroom, brushing himself generously up against him.
If Willie could talk human I believe he would have said "passing through bro!". He totally ignores him now.
Many thanks to you all for your generous comments on my last post. I was feeling quite overwhelmed yesterday and could see another busy busy weekend ahead of me and not being able to blog once again. A dip in the cool water of the pool has certainly helped and I realize I've got to get myself in focus where my blogging is concerned and not worry so much about keeping up, as in fact it is not a race.
