Soccer season is coming to an end over the course of the next few weeks. Mason had his soccer "tournament" on Saturday (I use that term lightly for the Under-6 age group); Jackson has his this Saturday; Carter the following Saturday; and Taylor the Saturday after that.
All but one of the coaches are male. I really wanted to give them a thank-you gift, but didn't think they would appreciate totes or wristlets or tissue pouches or crowns (... on second thought, a crown!). I found the perfect soccer ball fleece on sale this week and decided to cut it into scarves.
The scarves are two yards in length (including the fringed ends) and eight inches wide. I was able to cut seven scarves out of the width, when cutting along the grain. I bought additional yardage for my boys and made their scarves about 1 3/4 yards in length. Using a rotary cutter and mat made the job so much easier than using scissors.
Joe is in Kentucky this week and called yesterday morning to tell me that he was in a minor car accident. He and a friend/coworker were stopped at a red light and someone rear-ended them. The cars are pretty messed up, but no one had any serious injuries. Joe got an instant headache and felt nauseated, but refused treatment. He was better last night when I talked to him.
