Well, a few days later, my Mom handed me a bag and said, "here is the stuff you wanted me to pick up for you at World Market, and there's something in there for you from your sister. She made it." Now folks, my Sister CAN be crafty. I taught her to knit one morning and she took to it pretty quickly. She was going to make lap quilts for people in nursing homes, and a dog coat for her friend's dog. After not finishing the dishcloth in about six months time, she gave the needles and yarn back to me. But she has made some things. She's like our Mom in that area. She doesn't shop in a basement like I do (blushing). She just buys what she needs to do a particular project, and that's that. No material or yarn piles for her. She does have a scrapbooking pile though. And last year at Easter, she did all kinds of crafty dessert stuff. So when I pulled this sheep on the left out of the bag, I thought.....Theresa made this? hmmm, how nice of her.
I even told my husband it's a sign that we need to get some sheep since people are making them for me all of a sudden! Anyway, I called her up and I was asking her all kinds of questions. She claims she went to Conner Prairie and they were giving a felting class. I tried to talk her into coming to a Granny Bee workshop because we have lots of felting projects. She had plans. (she always does!) There's another workshop on April 16, by the way.
Then one day when Dad and I were having lunch together, he made a comment about the whole sheep story being funny.
"What was funny about it?"
"Oh.. you don't know?"
"She bought that at World Market and told your Mom to give it to you and tell you she made it."
I called her up and started singing the little "Liar Liar Pants on Fire" ditty.
Then in my post of craftyness, my blog stalker Sister wants to know why I didn't mention the little sheep she made me. So....ahem....here it is. First comment she ever left by the way.
