Your childhood memories always make me laugh - even when I'm by myself!

Thanks for the help Allison . . . now my wheels are really turning. It always helps to have someone else's input. I work hard on the costume over the week-end and send pictures once everything is complete. Thanks again to you and your readers! Happy Halloween! Love,Mom
Allison - Over the years, I've become pretty good with patches. The best type to use would probably be a light weight, iron-on type. You can gently push the patch through the hole with the adhesive side facing the fabric. With a steam iron, lightly send a shot of steam at the fabric & patch to make the adhesive tacky - then position the fabric over the patch until it is as you'd like it. Gently pressure with the iron and a few shots of steam should set the patch. Be sure to let the fabric & patch cool completely. If that doesn't work, take Shirley Temple to visit your parents and let your mom help you . . . I'm sure your parents have fond memories of the day you got Shirley Temple and all she means to you too!Love, Mom
Allison - Although I'm lucky enough to have an office, the desk arrangement in the center of the room could be considered a cubicle . . . or a cage. The things that brighten my otherwise gray & tan existance are pictures of my 3 daughters and a stuffed, singing Eeyore. When things start to become unbearable, a squeeze to Eeyore's tummy brings on a chorus of "It's so nice of you to notice me." I can then re-focus, look at my daughters smiling at me, & realize there is life outside the cubicle and it's up to me to brighten my space.
