Then true love struck ... I started dabbling with having a relationship with these Plain Janes. Took a little tuck here, added a splash of color there and before I realized it, I was head-over-heels in love with the phenom known as "Softies." They became addictive and instantly took on a character of their own. Little stories about their adventures and their lonely lives in the cast-off hamper suddenly started dancing through my head. They came to life with every stitch and snip.
So, here are some of the first "Softies" to come off the worktable with litle snippets of their stories....
|True Grit Kit|
Greta Goat longs to own a Greek speciality restaurant. She dreams of offering delectable salads and culinary delights featuring Greek recipes and goat cheeses (no surprise there). There will not be any lamb or goat on the menu (of course) but there will definitely be a goat chef in the kitchen .... none other than Greta!!
|Uncle Charlie Horse|
Uncle Charlie Horse is somewhat of a braggart in the family. He loves to carryon about winning his medal in Her Majesty's Steeplechase when actually it was second place in the royal sack race. A little confusion there, but Uncle Charlie Horse is getting on in years and his memory is not what it used to be. He wears the infamous medal around his neck daily and recants the tale of valor to whomever accidently stirs him from his endless armchair slumber.
Hope you have enjoyed meeting these first gentle guys.
