And speaking of "little things"....
Yes. Yes, indeed.
Seems that the universe *was* trying to tell me something.
Mainly that it had been a way long-ass time since I had actually finished anything. So, I reunited* with my needles and finished this little girl. Who was, I believe, begun back in earlier this spring.
Which brings me to a bit of a dilemma...
I started this little bear for a baby that was born last December - although I didn't get the birth announcement until late January. There were other babies born first, though, so I didn't get started on this one until late March or April.
But then there was the stupid I-burned-my-hands-so-I-can't-knit incident.
Which took much longer than I thought to get over.
Which was then promptly followed by the inner-ear-infection-from-hell-so-I-can't-do-anything incident.
Which, as you recall from all the subsequent whining, took forfreakingever to get over.
Then there was the introspective navel-gazing phase, which was also not particularly conducive to getting stuff done.
So - that brings me to here.
This "baby-gift" is ready now - TEN MONTHS after the birth of the baby.
A part of me thinks that it's just too stupid and embarrassing to send a gift this late.
Another part of me thinks that it's even more stupid not to send it, just because I'm embarrassed.
I could probably go find an Emily Post type answer as far as gift giving etiquette - but I'm far more interested in real life application.
What would you do?
Send it with no explanation?
Send it with a (very brief) explanation?
(I really don't want to explain what a goof I am, and how hard its been for me to get anything done this year. I mean, I'll talk about it with y'all - y'all already know that stuff. But to rehash to it someone who's lucky enough not to have to hear about it the first time???)
Or should I just decide that the A on the sweater stands for my last name and keep it for myself, selfish troll that I am?
'Cause I have to admit, I'm kind of smitten by this face:
*Reunited.... and it feels so good....
Anyone else old enough to remember that song? And did anyone realize that Herb went through about five different Peaches? Must be harder than we think to shake your groove thing!
and Sweet Cracker Sandwich! They're still touring!
