If we didn't have our own (actually we have two but one is rather allusive)...
I would definitely relearn to knit just so I could knit my own cat! Ooo then I wouldn't have to do any kitty litter-hmmm... Apparently you can knit your own dog too! I've seen knit the royal family, zombies, mini hot dogs and gnomes. What will they think of next?

once your hooked your hooked.
|May's block for Holly sewn by Chris|
Have I told you I recently conned my husband Chris into quilting?
|First time embroidering ever. Pretty good, hey?|
It kind of started out as a joke, especially since we don't have any guys in our guild (Fraser Valley Modern Quilt Guild).When Cynthia mentioned to me she was going to start her Fab Bee I volunteered him.We snickered through email but when I told him that I volunteered him he became serious and said, "I'd do it." Wha-huh, you will, um okay! That was particularly easy.
|We were asked to also embroider where were from on the signature block. I was going to put Mission because it's shorter (and technically we live in Mission-long story) but because Chris put Maple Ridge I figured I should too!|
|My block for Holly|
My youngest son has now mentioned he'd like to learn now too-nice! I'm not sure if it's because he's seen his dad do sewing or if it's all my influence but I'll take all the credit ;)
|My drawing for the month in yellow, my favourite colour. We were both given our favourite colours, how did Holly know?|
Is there anyone you're trying to convert? How is is going? Are they putty in your hands or are you going to have to give them some more free samples?
|Chris admitted to me he didn't like some previous embroidery I did (it was too loopy and made him cringe-such an expert now, lol!) so I thought I better up my game!|
