The other night I drove Brendan's car, which we park in our garage. I never ever go in our garage since I never ever drive his car. So I had no idea we had critters in the garage. When I came home, the headlights showed me lots of little ones running and hiding. I didn't really think too much about it, it's a garage. Then Ingrid wanted to get the Christmas stuff out.
One box made it inside when we moved, but somehow one got left in the garage. I opened it up and found a bunch of red fluff, which I couldn't figure out what it was. It was everywhere!! And then I saw the poo. And then I saw the holes in the stockings. Those little f'ers chewed through five stockings, a vintage tablecloth, and some tissue paper. Ingrid was a bit upset she didn't have a stocking to hang up. Luckily she knew we have time to get more.
Luckily she has a mom that sews stuff :)
That night I set out to make some new stockings. These are the ones I made when she was small. These are the ones I made this week.
I like them so much I think I might make some to sell at the show I have next weekend!
Speaking of shows, the one I did this week was at a country club and it totally made me laugh to be there. It was just kind of fancy and not really my style. Oh well, I like how my table turned out and it's always good to get another show under my belt.
Holidays are so busy, it's nice to keep doing things but I think I will like the chance to breathe after they are done!!
