You must do the thing you think you cannot do.”

“You gain strength, courage and confidence by every experience in which you really stop to look fear in the face. You are able to say to yourself, 'I have lived through this horror. I can take the next thing that comes along.'

You must do the thing you think you cannot do.”

The Good, The Bad and the Ugly

Well, Lest you think that I am perfect; today I will dispel that notion. I would like to talk about the Good, The Bad and the Ugly. No I am not talking about  the Clint Eastwood movie or about  my family for that matter. I am talking about attempts and results. It would be easy to tell you only of my successes. Sure you could go on thinking everything I do is easy. Not so! Here are three examples of what I mean.


O.K. these little Mary Jane style booties are good. I started them when my daughter told me she was pregnant. Again, I was sure it would be a forward. It was not a girl so this week I finished sewing them up and added the tiny pearl buttons. They will go to the next baby girl I hear about.


The Bad, no these darling booties are not bad but I am. You see my mother made these for my daughter 32 years ago. When I saw them they were exactly the way they are now. I offered to sew the buttons on for her because I had some and she didn't.......well you guessed it. I never got around to it and they stayed in my top dresser drawer all there years.  Oops. Oh well I will put the buttons on today.Hey, I'm sorry, I got busy. If you see Lucille, please don't let on.

 Yes, you are seeing this right. I don't know what happened. I have made baby UGGs before and they came out fine. So when my friend was pregnant with twins I decided to make pink wool UGGs for her little winter babies. Needless to say they didn't get sent and I never made the second pair.  I don't know where I went wrong. I guess I should have checked the gauge (or put down the wine).  If you know of a baby with one foot size 0 and the other size 7 let me know. I will send them along. (anonymously of course) Or second thought I may  just make another right one FOR ME; I am sure it would fit perfectly.
 Peace and Love....Please leave a comment so I know you were here. Feel free to follow me and tell me about your projects or anything else for that matter.
