Crafty Tuesday Wannabe - 'Cause I'm Just a Wannabe

A few weeks ago Harrison and I got some fabric remnants to make some softies - well a robot softie to be exact. Then I got my sewing machine back from a friend - without the pedal to make it run. So we are still in waiting mode... [After making some felt food by hand with needle and thread, I came to the conclusion that I am better off waiting for the sewing machine plug before venturing into a much larger sewing trek.

Then this cute little site caught my eye. It was the name of the site that stopped me, it's similar to Harrison's little invisible friend. that's right, it apparently stays in my closet near a hat only it's called Moogy. I have NO idea where it came from, only that one morning as we all lay in bed, the GID alseep and I half asleep, I hear Harrison's voice talking - and responding.

He says, "See I'll show you, mommy's eyes are blue..." he starts to lift my eyelid, but I open my eye. "Uh, huh." he continues, looking toward the closet. "And Daddy's eyes are green..." At that point I stop him from trying to open eyelids on the sleeping man next to us. then I ask him, "Who are your talking to?"

"Moogy" in that Duh tone that only a Toddler can achieve.

"Moogy? Where is Moogy?"

"In the closet mommy. By the hat"

I look to where he points in the hazy morning light and see an old ball cap and scarves hanging from hooks as I listen to Harrison tell me about Moogy, his friend. It seems they had been discussing eye color and ABCs this particular morning and he had to show Moogy our eyes.

Moogy has made a few appearance in the months since, but not too often, as Harrison spends less time in our bed in the mornings now.

Although this morning, as we lay there waking up slowly, Harrison raises his hand in a wave and nonchalantly throws out, "Hey Moogy."

Well all that to say, I realized Moopy & Me was a blog I had found some time ago and lost. Carly even has a book out - in Australia [dang] - that I would love to have. And she is a talented artist in the area of whimsy. And speaking of fun, check out this post, I would love to get my hands on some of those Stockmar beeswax blocks for coloring. Not gonna happen but they are nice.

In the mean time, maybe we can make a Moogy softie!


If I could just get that sewing machine power cord back...

I wish I knew how to sew. Anything. Anything at all.

You should post a little tutorial on how you guys make the softies once you get power back to you machine.

Woo hoo - even a Wannabe or Wishing to be, or Thinking about being Crafty is better than no crafting!

I can't wait to see the Moogy! We have an imaginary friend (sometimes two) over here too! I had one when I was little, too...signs of creative children!!
