A little repair work

A little over two years ago I made Jane E’s stork for my daughter’s baby shower gift, putting it on a photo album. My daughter was kind of mad at her husband soon after because he took the album to work to show off the pictures of his new daughter and got the cover dirty. 
Sometime after that her son got hold of it and did some modifications. I don’t think he was being malicious but scissors and string were too much for a two year-old to resist, especially when Momma was with the new sister.
She finally gave it back to me and I finally got around to doing some repairs.
As damage goes, this wasn’t that bad.  The sling and baby are done separately from the stork itself so the repair wasn’t too intensive. 
Pretty much as good as new!  Still has a few fingerprints on it, but that shows it was passed around a bit, right?
Didn’t get much tatting done this week as we did some house cleaning and then had family over for the weekend.  That, of course(!), was much more fun.
My two superheroes! 
No, I didn’t ask them to pose like that, that was all their idea. They had each got new PJ’s that came with capes and had to show us their hero stance.
Yes, that’s the little girl the baby shower was for two years ago and that’s the big brother. Oh, how time flies!
“I mean, first of all, let me say whichever superhero first came up with the idea of wearing a cape, he wasn’t really onto anything good.  The number of times I’m treading on that damn thing or I throw a punch and it ends up covering my whole head. It’s really not practical.”

  1. Thanks for the big chuckle!

    It could not have been a better severing for the older sibling to achieve! Perfect!

  2. I'm laughing my head off here… "your grandchild" becomes "her son" when he's been up to mischief!
    I love that stork pattern, I've made it for several new babies. When my own twin grandchildren arrived, the stork had a pink and a blue sling in his beak!
    My daughter loved it so much that she framed it, which was gratifying.

  3. Supercute idea for using the stork on a photo album. Good thing you took pictures of the damaged stork before doing repairs because that's the one you'll be talking about in 20 years.

  4. It is funny, cute kids, I used to have little ones and there are all gone but one in high school. It's nice to get round to repair jobs good to see someones doing them. 🙂

  5. Well done on the repair, that's one thing in the family that will be talked about for many years to come at least you have the photos, I would add one at the back of the book so they can see what happen in years to come.

    Superheroes they look great in their pjs
