We're Born That Way!

You know the feeling... you've just been fabric shopping and you can't wait to get home to wash it and cut it up. You simply have to slip it out of the sack and hold it, caress it, right there in the car. You'd like to wrap up in it but you're fearful of what passers-by might think. Well, my friends, I now know that it's not a learned behavior; we're born that way! My daughter is in town and we made a quick run to the discount department store today to pick up some long-sleeved T-shirts for Miss Lucy Ann, she wanted to carry "her" bag to the car. On the way home we looked in the back seat and this is what we saw; the shopping bag had long-since been discarded to the floor and she had an armful of her soft new shirts... by the time we made it into the driveway she had draped them around herself like so many long, luxurious scarves. Oh, sweetheart, Nana knows. I had some beautiful Moda yardage that I wanted to "wear" the very same way just a few weeks ago!

Life is Good!

The best was when my granddaughter and I made a pillow. She could have cared less about the pillow, but when I dumped the stuffing into a big pile on the floor, it became: a snow drift, princess hair, a Fancy Nancy boa, a fat belly, big boobs, a moustache & beard, a bed, funny shoes, a cloud, pretend ice cream...... Soooo worth the clean up effort!

And she doesn't know enough yet to restrain those impulses. Lucky girl!

Sounds completely logical to me :) (I once had to pull my sister off a bolt of Minkee in the Walmart that she'd wrapped her arms around!)

Lucy certainly has grown! She looks like she is tall, long legged girly.

I get the "wrap it up" idea tho.

It's just a matter of time before she's raiding your stash!

She is adorable! So lovely.... She is not even mine, yet i am enthralled. Plus, it is so true, i pull freshly purchased fabric out of the bag on the seat & moon over @ stop lights... Too funny, ingrained indeed!
