I had all the elements for this already made, just needed a minute to assemble and hot glue into the pot. I woke up with a sore throat and the sniffles, one kid was at work, the other babysitting at a neighbours, so it was just Daddio and his young son out for brunch which gave me just enough time to get things together.



I love them! They are so accidentally phallic but it cracks the both of us up completely, lol.


LOL Cheesy


I was working on this on the drive home from the Asheville get together and when we crossed the border I answered "Yarn!" when the guard asked if we'd purchased anything during our visit. He foolishly asked what I was stitching up and this hilarious green thing was what I had to show him.


Seriously, my crafting can sometimes get me into trouble, haha.

There's not much in this world that can't be improved by either chocolate, bacon or glitter.

HAHA! Nothing is more traditionally appropriate for Father's Day than a phallus, right? Great gift!

Accidentally phallic crafts are the best kind of phallic crafts, I think.

I'm mischievously curious: Did you tell the guard what they were or leave him to draw his own conclusions?

Well, the trouble is that some children are timorous, and some children are reckless. In order to save the lives of reckless children, warnings are calibrated for their safety...what I needed to be told is Do you know what? Most days you wont die. Its fine.David Mitchell

I totally told him! LOL, it didn't matter at all, he was thoroughly embarassed at me holding up that large green shaft Cheesy.

Here it is at my man's office.

He texted me this pic right away. I think he likes his Dad's day present Smiley.

Another delightful cacti creation!

It could have been worse, the guard might have wanted to cut it open to inspect the interior for drugs or other contraband . . .

Aww, thanks!


Patraw thankfully it was still a work in progress at that point. I would have been mighty unhappy about a 3+hour project being cut apart, yikes!
