last time phoebe and i played together, i noticed she wasn't quite her usually perky self. her lacquer was a bit dull and i think i know why. i saw her glance over at the old viking looking a bit pea green with envy...it was the sewing pad with pockets, i'm sure of it. so i pulled out some scraps and made phoebe a pad of her very own, a bright, cheery, cushy-for-the-tushy with pockets for all kinds of necessaries. after it was done, it got folded and put into her case. next time we play she will be sewing in style. makes a mom feel good when her children are happy for sure, even her sewing machine offspring. wonder if the little brother feels left out now?
