I have gotten grief all my life for not giving my parents grandchildren (I'm an only child), but I *never* wanted to have them. I know this thread is all in lightheartedness, but after what I've had to deal with in the last 20 years because of my decision - often from strangers - it just makes me sad (seriously, the things people have said, I... can't even repeat them here, they are so... insulting and cruel).
you won't get grief from me. you'll only get a gigantic hug!!! *gloms onto Smeddley* I get the same thing. the worst person has actually been one of my uncles. my parents are actually ok with not having grand kids. they have my cousin's two little girls. speaking of, I did craft for one of them. some time ago, I made one of those drawstring backpacks for a swap partner. I ended up making one for my cousin's oldest. that may have been the only thing I made though. I don't know what to make for kids, plus when we were still living closer to them, the youngest was just a baby and didn't have any favorite characters (the backpack was made from a Dora print I found. she was obsessed at the time).
sorry I've been quiet. it's not been a good few years for me. I know I was posting some crafts I had made, but eventually my depression became too great and I got into a crafting slump. I'm still not in the mood to craft, but I am still slowly working on the cross stitch project I started FOREVER ago. it's taking me so long because it's being done on 28 count cloth and there are only about 5 colors. so lots of annoying solid work.
