Pixie Slippers and a Sweet Imagination...

My children need new slippers. So, I looked up a cute crochet pattern on the internet, and began making a pair for Madeline. Little did I know how much she would appreciate them. The pattern was so simple....crochet a square and then stitch up two adjacent sides and around the corner for a couple of inches. They look like little elf slippers. Madeline immediately put them on and began dancing around.  She danced for quite a while. Finally, she announced, "This is how the fairy closes up to sleep", and gracefully lowered herself to the ground and into a little ball - her expression perfectly sincere and serious. We don't play or story-tell much in the fairy department, but I really love that her little imagination could think of what a "flower person" would look like and are so beautiful, and if you could personify them......I think Maddie has the right idea of what their characteristics would be. Who'd a thunk a couple of wash cloths could be so enjoyed by a 5 year old! (Pictures of the pixie in her slippers to follow!)
