I learned something important about love with this second Bend-the-Rules Sewing puppet theatre project.
Since both our names go on the gifts we give each year, I insist my husband participate in the gift making/purchasing/shipping process—it’s not all me. I hauled him off to the fabric store last week to choose fabrics for three puppet theatres.
My choice was the fabrics you saw in yesterday’s theatre project. This second theatre features Mickey Mouse fabrics and fringe trim as chosen by my husband.
I tried quite hard to dissuade him as I do not like this type of stuff at all and pushed him to consider other fabrics. “What about these?” I asked. “They would make great puppet theatres.”
But he was so proud of his choices that I felt ashamed of myself—as well I should.
So I held up each fabric bolt and cocked my head this way and that in consideration. “Hmmm, honey, I see what you mean. Yes, let’s get these—great idea!”
And I let him choose the fabrics and trim for the third theatre that I’ll show you on Monday.
Our grandchildren are going to love the theatres with the fabrics he chose—and I’m proud of my husband.
