letters in action

The perfect February show and tell item, beautifully made by Mike's grandmother back in the early '80s or so and a recent obsession around here,


was missing three stuffed cuties.   What with the valentine signing and all the night before (conveniently, show and tell and the Valentine's Day party fell on the same day), I was stitching and dodging stuffing ball launches up until the moment we left for school.

I have not a clue what the originals were (we'll likely find them around here one day), but together, we came up with a couple of ideas.  W is for water, L is for lollipop: 

l is for lolloipop

and my favorite:

h is for heart

"H is for heart, mommy.  It's perfect for Valentine's Day!"

My even-favoriter favorite:

p is for pilot

P is for pilot.  He came up with that one all on his own.


  1. Did you photograph the water? I'd like to see it.

  2. What a nice little show and tell. Nice going Alex, coming up with P for pilot.

  3. OMG I have the same thing hanging in my playroom from when I was little. I can photograph the originals if you want to remake them, but I love what you came up with!

    W- whale
    L- lion
    H- house
    P- pig

  4. I did photograph the water:

    but it was my least favorite because for some reason I made it WAY too small...too bad, because it was my favorite concept before I made them. Might remake it a bit bigger.

    Mrs. Wright, I would love to see the originals! I might even make them again so we can switch them out. These were so much fun!

    Marlene--I laughed out loud! He is so funny to me. But I suppose all parents say that.

  5. I just remembered to come back and check this! I will photograph the originals tomorrow and send them to your e-mail!

  6. So great! What a nice treasure : )
