K is for knit, key, khaki, and...


I have everything that can be moved tied down in ribbons. I thought that with little kids pieces that can go missing, will. This little key is something that I have had for so long that I don't even clearly remember where I got it. I think that it might have something to do with collecting things from the neighbors perpetual garage sale with the Fitzpatrick twins. The other keys I found in the scrap-booking isle, another one of those great finds in the paper section.

I knit the K without a pattern or really knowing how large it might turn out. So of course with this experimental way of doing things I did it twice. I gave the first and larger K to my cousin Katie. I have the pattern all written up for one of those days I get my act together.

J is for jalapeno, jellyfish and...


Sometimes I had to let go of the fact that some of my ideas where cheesy and just do them with a smile. J is one of these. I am not a big fan of these jellyfish or the way that they jump, but they work. On my next version of this book (grandchildren one day?) I will do it better.

The jump was made by sewing an elastic in a small tube of the background fabric.
