Since I sew while everyone’s sleeping, I close the bedroom door most of the way so the noise and light doesn’t disturb my family, but still leave it a little cracked open so I can hear when Glowbug wakes up. On breezy nights, this was a problem because the door would bang open and shut, obviously defeating the purpose of the whole thing. Solution? A rock door stop!
I thought that was so funny — it’s a rock! Rocks make great doorstops! But I made a rock for a doorstop instead of just picking one up from outside! hehehe.
Anyway, I embroidered faces on the other two sides as well (please pardon the weird colors — I don’t know what the heck I’m doing in gimp).
Since we moved, I packed up my less-frequently-used craft supplies in boxes that are currently under the house, and that’s where my would-have-been-perfect-for-this bag of crushed walnut shells is. Doh! Then I remembered our jar full of change that never gets spent, so I weighted the rock with a bag of pennies. Nice and heavy!
The next morning, eagle-eyed Cosmo noticed our new rock right away, and claimed he loved it and that it was his best friend. He carried it around the house, kept tossing it (to go THUNK on the hard floors), and got into some scuffles with Sunshine over whose rock it was, so the next night I made some rock brothers for the kids to play with.
Of course, the boys mainly ignored the new rocks. Such is my life!
Linking up to Amanda’s Finish It Up Friday. Maybe someone else will think these are funny, too! 😀
