What am I knitting?

Dutch elementary school teacher, Ingeborg Meinster-Van der Dui, missed her students when classes were cancelled due to the COVID-19 virus.  So she knitted little dolls that represented each of her students.  She made sure that to include details special to each student in her creations – freckles, glasses, hairstyles, etc.

When completed, she shared a photo of her dolls with her students and their parents – and they were delighted.

Classes will soon be back in session, but Ms. Meinster-Van der Dui says she will continue to make dolls of her students in the future.

What do you see?

If you see a floating trash bin you have been in isolation too long.  It is just a wet spot on the pavement.

What am I Lego-loving?

March 26, 2020

LEGO puts out a Star Wars Death Star “play set”.  I would call it a doll house and I think it is ADORABLE!  It has about 4000 pieces and a lot of little figures.  There is a great deal of detail to the set which I appreciate and I am so happy that I did not know about this earlier because it is on back order at the LEGO online store (for $499.99) and I hope the urge to buy passes before it becomes available again.  I really do not need a(nother) collectible no matter how cool.  My friend Robb more accurately calls these things “dustables.”
