    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.
