Little M - who isn't so little - made me a wonderful present.
Wonderful for many reasons. She'd received a little kit for Christmas to make pompom "friends" and while I am not big into the whole "make silly things" thing - when making silly things allows one to learn skills that are quickly being forgotten then I'm into it. Sure - its a pompom. But perhaps pompoms will lead to love of yarn and that might lead to knitting or crochet... I can hope.
She tried her hand and was frustrated that her first attempt didn't live up to her expectations. Tears. And wanting to put it all away and forget about it. So that she took it out, tried again, and made something she was proud to give to me - that was big. And I'm delighted. Because artists must fail - it is part of the journey.
She told me to name it want I wanted. And so I named it "Moo-Hoo" which is both in reference to M's name. And reference to my alma mater's current trendy nickname.
