I find it funny how the concept of the computer and the internet should be and can be impersonal, non-social and isolated but that it can also foster a sense of community and kind of "human-ness". I mean, I can look at pretty pictures and long for what I see on the screen, but it's the human-ness and community that inspires me and tells me to "give it a go".
So, I came across some blog posts and were inspired to "give them a go". And I'm so glad I did!!!
The soft ball inspiration came from browsing around sewandthecity blog (thanks for the inspiration!!). I see these soft balls in every baby store. I pick them up and have a bit of a play. And, in agreement with the manufacturers spiel, think it's not a bad toy for a little one - teaches textures, encourages eye-hand coordination etc etc etc. But did I ever think I could MAKE one?!? Not until now - and so I gave it a go.
I'm pretty chuffed about this one and I can see a couple more being made for a couple more little ones.
I need to add more ribbons (!), stuff it a bit more and practice a bit more on the "north and south poles".
And I put a small bell inside with the stuffing, but I only have a VERY LIMITED supply of the bells before I have to actually buy some. How many more bells do you think I can steal from Little Miss M before she notices?
What has inspired you to "give it a go"?
