We Were Invaded!

Sometimes it pays to plan ahead....I didn't.

Tessie still insists that the cabinet that I made yesterday is hers. 

It doesn't matter that the loom has to sit at an angle in order for the cabinet to fit under the eaves.

She is swearing up and down that she likes it that way...I hate to say it, but after looking at it, I kind of like it too.

It gives the room a more casual, lived in look.
I have an excuse for not doing minis. 

Seth went back to Ghana again on Thursday, so April and Amare came over here to spend the day.

We sat up a huge baby corral in the middle of the living room and Amare avoided getting into it most of the day.  He liked it outside the corral where all of the interesting things were....

I wish that I had thought to get a photo of April and him looking at the Witches Warehouse.  She is trying to teach him about Halloween....He isn't a year old until November....That makes no difference.  He liked the lighted pumpkins and the witches anyway.

Maybe we have another miniaturist in the making?
Since I didn't think to take photos while they were here, I opted for a couple of cute cat shots.  They both spent the day in the bedroom, as far away from tail pulling as they could get.

Sorry about the absence of minis, but sometimes other things just get in the way.

Back to work tomorrow.

See you then.

You have a very good excuse for not making minis. :D Every day you have a chance to play with your grandson is a day well spent!

LOve the cat pics but also really like the new set up. By putting the loom at an angle you can actually see more of the "workings" and the cloth in progress. Glad you took time out to spend with Amare. We've been away from our 21 month old grandson for a week now and I'm going through withdrawal! Have a great day. - Marilyn
