We call my husband’s grandma Goobin, the details are fuzzy as to why.
But every year I make her a zip pouch for her ciggies. I save a few sample blocks for this purpose. This block is a cast-off from a quilt somewhat in production mode.
The story this year is a little sad and a whole lot funny.
You see, I always include a strap to attach the pouch to her walker, like this one last year.
Well, with old age we forget things and apparently Grandma Goobin has forgotten she smokes! So I guess not all is downhill when it comes to losing our memory after all.
So this year I didn’t add a strap. She can leave this in her room, no need to venture outside for a puff.
This pouch from last year is still my favorite ever, though for the smell it likely should be burned.
Wishing my Bernina had this triple stitch, possibly the only redeeming characteristic of the Pfaff that I practically lost my own mind using.
So, that’s one checked off the list.
How are you getting on with gifts? My list is short this year for lack of time.
