Off My Feet

I alluded in my last post to needing to be off my feet for a few days. It's not that I meant to be cryptic or secretive, it's just that I didn't want to make anyone cringe.

So I called in the troops and I'm staying off my feet. What's a girl to do?

The blocks are a first birthday gift for Andy my next door neighbor. I'm pretty sure he'll like them as I've made similar ones for my one year old product tester and he approved. All the fabric was from the stash and the jingle bells in the center were recycled from other toys.
