After six months it’s done……

Ages and ages ago I teased the people reading with this post and this one.  I got all of the sewing done and then the project languished for a very long time as I sat there and didn’t ask Jeff at any of the right times to help me with drilling the pipes.  But finally, six months, okay really nine months later it’s done.

The kids all got to take turns drilling a hole.  This was of course super exciting, working with real live power tools.

And then……. drum roll please……  We set it up.  Pause for dramatic unveil.

Now I just need to thread some good heavy duty, but small rope, through the holes so it quite sliding down.  The kids happily and very quickly threw us out of their fort.

I feel so unloved…..  Maybe I should go to the garden and eat worms.  But, that’d be gross, so I don’t think I will.  And, I don’t want to sew one of those again, it was no fun.  Too much yardage to lug around my machine.

  1. That is a great idea. Mine would have to be a no-sew though. I think I might have the big kids make one for James today and I bet they will all end up in it playing.

  2. “Nobody likes me, everybody hates me, I guess I'll go eat worms! Long fat skinny ones, short fat juicy ones, itsy bitsy fuzzy wuzzy worms!” I'll keep this kid-friendly, and leave the rest of the song out 🙂

    Sure turned out cute!!
