My niece did a fantastic job. We knit him up together. Sharing bits and learning along the way. I didn't have any fibrefill to stuff him with, so we went old school, we filled him up with dried beans! His glasses will be made of a pair of teeny-weeny sequins. He looked great at his time of departure!
Friday nite we checked out the Weirdo-Centre, teenager style. We saw all the shops my niece liked. We saw so many trends done up on the cheap; it was eye opening. I really should do that more often, it is research after all. We ended that evening with burgers at A&W.
Saturday we ventured into the Glebe to see a weekend art festival called Arts in the Park. I was happy to bring her there. She saw many different types of art and we met many people. After that, we checked out a few cool record stores and that yarn store I mentioned before. Then, we returned to my place in time to have a pic-nic in the back yard and to continue the Joey.
Sunday morning we had a lovely breakfast: Northern Ontario blueberry filled pancakes with home-made maple syrup, crispy bacon, fresh-squeezed orange juice with sparkling wine and cafe-au-lait. What more could a teenager ask?
Our soundtrack of the weekend consisted of:
- The Ramones, naturally,
- Bright Eyes,
- The Raveonettes.
And at night we watched:
- Royal Tennenbaums,
- Jaw Breaker,
- The Simple Life: the first year.
My sister-in-law promised to send me pictures of the finished Joey. All that writing and no eye-candy.
