    LMAO, but now that you mention it YES! You think I’d have noticed it before with the potty training. Guess I was too enamored with Michael Phelps.

    This looks very much like a Christmas Wreath I made one year using a technique called “candle wicking”. Fancy name for everything is outlined with french knots. Muslin fabric, metallic threads, garish colors. It had doves and flowers and a big satin stitch bow, lace trim edged in metallic thread Vam put the whole thing together on her machine and stuffed it for me. The lace trim was wayyyy too narrow for the size of the wreath, I insisted on wayyyy too much stuffing and it ended up looking JUST LIKE A TOILET SEAT trimmed out in lace. Who knew it would turn up years later in Beijing?!!! Bottom’s up!
