I wanted to show you my latest project~I made an Indian Teepee for my son for Christmas.
Talk about "flying by the seat of my pants." I decided just a few days before Christmas that I was going to make it. I have had the material and pattern for awhile but waited to the last minute to proclaim that it must be made for Christmas ( I should have mentioned Chronic Procrastinator on my Random/Weird Facts list).
So, I enlisted the help of my dear sweet Father-in-Law...he cut and drilled holes in the six, seven-foot long PVC pipes, and I stayed glued to the sewing machine for 3 days.On Christmas morning, all of his Santa Claus gifts were waiting for him inside the Teepee.
It is currently set-up in the living room, filling the spot left vacant by the Christmas tree. He does not refer to it as a Teepee. It is the "Spy Hide-Out" and is outfitted with all of his Spy Gear, and because he loves the movie National Treasure and has seen it at least a dozen times, he has taken to calling me Ben and I am to refer to him as Riley (the two main characters). In all of my wildest dreams, I would never have imagined myself in the role play of crafty treasure hunter. Everyday here, really is an adventure:)
