Did I say I could have these done by Easter? Ha! Between the gathering of fabrics (during my “buy no new fabrics” period), the procrastination (for some reason, the wise men’s finery frightened me), the kids (mommy this, mommy that), the procrastination (now it’s the angels’ wings I can’t get past), the lice (everything into plastic bags for 2–3 weeks; whether it was near lice or not), the kids…… I thought I’d never finish these guys. But here they are finished, loitering in my living room in their little cliques.
I’m still giggling to myself about the name I gave to the little babes one night. They look less like potatoes to me and more like larvae (especially before they were snuggled into their brown baskets). And since there are three, what’s the plural of Jesus? So yes, they are “larval Jesii” to me. I’ll probably get struck down by lightning for that one, but it still makes me giggle.
