Once upon a time, there were two little children, a girl and a boy. The girl was 2 years of age and her brother was almost 6 months old. These darling children are very much loved by a large family with lots and lots of cousins–an ample supply of playmates. The children have regular contact with most of their cousins but there are some that live more than 1000 kilometres away! (That's me and my family.)
Christmas and birthdays present a challenge when choosing 'long-distance' gifts. I'm here to share my pattern for crocheted finger puppets and to explain how they were the perfect choice for two young children and their cousins at Christmas (2016).
When I think of "Needles and Pins", I think of the 60s song by The Searchers which was a hit again in the 70s when it was recorded by Smokie. The song was written by Sonny Bono and Jack Nitzsche and it doesn't seem to matter who records it, it always sounds great because it has a catchy 'hook'.
Isn't it funny how all three words can be used in the same sentence with different meanings?
This blog entry is about one of those words - PINS!
