Real Men pick up the check

A city spokesman said local taxpayers shouldn’t have to subsidize the cost of an event that is purely for fundraising and is not open to the public except for payment. If the Obama bill continues to be unpaid, they will send it to an outside contractor for collections.

Fabric baby ball UPDATED

I made a fabric ball with this pattern (URL below) for the Buzzers. It has been a huge hit. Daddy Buzz especially enjoys it! LOL There have been some none-too-subtle hints from Mama Buzz and her sisters that Grammy Hyphen better produce balls for the Buzz Cousins. I just finished one for the Monkeys and had so much fun, I had to share.

The Corporals K and YoYo (aka, The Marines) are next on the Tuit list. They’re both artists. I’m thinking maybe it would be fun to pull out all my quilt fabric scraps and cut a LOT of sections and circles, then mail them so they can design their own ball. I’ll sew it.

K sews … all my girls do, it was one of Mom’s Non-Negotiable Summer Skill Acquisition Projects. And don’t you think for a single minute that I haven’t savored every minute of them buying their own machines and thanking me for making them learn! LOL The GRIPING I endured that summer!

But K’s working 12 hour days at her summer job, which will overlap with returning to college in the fall. I think she and YoYo will get a kick out of playing with the fabrics, shuffling colors around and sending them back for me to do the assembly. And I’ll end up with a LOT of left-over sections and circles ready to sew for the next baby shower that comes along. 🙂
