Since you’re so naked, I thought you might want to make yourselves some nice little circle skirts. And perhaps, like me, you find yourself with little mole rat patterns just a touch on the small side. But the grading of a circle skirt isn’t so easy, is it you naked rodents? OK.

OK, I admit I usually grade up my circle skirts the ‘wrong’ way. My problem is (hopefully) solved! Okee dokee. Let’s move on to the grading stuff, shall we?? Whew! OK!

Have slippers... will craft!! Happy Day After Mother's Day Everyone!I had a MomChops filled weekend plus crafts which equals the best kind of weekend there is!! Saturday we had breakfast at her house, shopped for skirt fabric in two different places, stopped for a quick lunch and did a whole lotta gabbing (craft gossip and planning at it's finest)! Sunday was another breakfast get together followed by hours of crafts. In the afternoon Chef RonChops came into the craft room and informed us that he would be serving us a 3 course lunch. The courses were: macaroni, cheese, and rotel (rotel is diced tomatoes with jalapenos for those of you who have never heard of it). Little MomChops StoryWhen MomChops comes over she always has a bag with her... inside her bag is usually a finished craft project or two and other random craft supplies. However... also inside the bag is the most important crafting accessory of them all. Slippers! So what are you rambling on about Lolly... let's get going with some crafts already (sheesh)!
