I’m linking this post with Buttons and Paint for the Ho, Ho, Ho And on We Sew linky Party. I’m ashamed to say that, although I was enthusiastic about making Christmas items throughout the year back in January, this is the first time I’ve had anything to link up. Hopefully now I’ve got started I’ll keep it up!
And, because I don’t expect to ever have such an eccentric post here again, I’m going to tell my favourite Dr Seuss story. I have no idea whether it’s true or not but I’d like it be…
Apparently, Dr Seuss found himself sitting next to a brain surgeon at a dinner party and the brain surgeon asked him what he did for a living. Dr Seuss explained that he wrote books for children. The brain surgeon was quite interested and said that he thought he might like to write a children’s book when he had a bit of free time. Dr Seuss replied that when he had some spare time he was thinking of trying a bit of brain surgery…
Happy Making, Christmas or otherwise :)
If you are looking to link up with my Wool on Sundays post, it is here, btw.

I think you should make EVERY post like this one – I was reading it out loud in a rhyming Seussy voice … I wanted to reply in kind but …
Tired I am, so straight I shall be,
Seussing right now, is quite beyond me.
The poem is great!
And the sox are as well …
I have two huge feeties …
