I had a different post planned for today but last night I picked up a package from the mail.
A mysterious package…
The return address was from my brother who lives on the East Coast of the U.S.
He’s bought me fabric before, he’s a world traveler…maybe to celebrate my 5th year blogging he’s sent me some interesting fabric from his travels…
It’s a soft package…feels like fabric…(anticipation building…getting excited…)
So I open it.
It is not fabric..it is a HEAD! A bear’s head!
Is my brother sending me a warning that he has ordered a mob hit on me?!?!?!?
Also inside the package is a body…
Then I remember – this is my 6 year old nephew’s favorite teddy bear.
My brother has sent the decapitated bear to me for repair!
Now normally I do not like to be asked to do repairs (and please never ask me to hem/mend your clothes) as I think asking a quilter to repair fabric items, mend/hem clothing, etc. for you is like asking an artist who paints landscapes to paint your house.
I always flinch when someone asks me this BUT this is for my beloved 6 year old nephew. So I am going to do a complex head reattachment surgery.
