Well... Master Six thinks that I am!
He might not have said it in quite those words, but he gave me one of THOSE looks. You know the kind I mean... a look of despair, disgust, shock, horror and disbelief... all rolled into one.
Now what could I possibly have done to deserve a LOOK like that, you wonder?
Well... it all has to do with this hand made Christmas idea.
At first I didn't really know what to make for the boys. After I thought on it for a while, I put a couple of ideas together. They love their cuddle toys... and they love to 'design'. So I would let them 'design' a cuddle toy, and I would make it for them. It seemed simple enough.
And it was... in theory. For example the alien for Master Nine is all done and wrapped, waiting under the tree.
Alas things are not moving so smoothly with Master Six. He drew a monster for me weeks ago. But I can't find it! In fact, I don't recall having seen it at all... but he swears that he gave it to me to look after. Well, I have turned this craft room upside down looking for it... and it is definitely not here.
Master Six is horrified that I could have been so irresponsible with his precious design. He is so affected by the situation, that no amount of coaxing or bribing could get him to sketch another creature. Apparently I had my chance, and I blew it!
We finally agreed that he could give me a list of characteristics, and I would work from that instead. Take a look at the list... I think he is trying to punish me!
- 12 arms, 6 on each side
- 10 legs
- 8 eyes
- red hair... on his head, not all over
So I've drawn up a quick sketch... a very quick sketch indeed!
