Mimi takes a vacation

March 12th, 2007

I got an email from Target.com telling me Mimi was on her way. And then I get a postcard from Mimi telling me as happy as she is to meet her new Mum… she’s taking a little detour on her way to Oregon. Something about “wanting to see the world”.

Dear Mum,

I’m so happy to be coming home to you. I’ve been told you will love me very much and take good care of me. I’m also very excited to be meeting my two new sisters - Elna and Lil Elna. I know you’re antisipating my arrival with excitement, but I do hope you will be understanding when I tell you I’m going to see the world first. I’ve been cooped up in a box for so long, and would really like to spread my wings a bit before coming home.

My first stop is not far from where I was born. Here I am in a little park in Bejing. As you can see, I’m being well cared for. Next stop - London! See you soon!


PS… do you think this photo might have something to do with your blog being blocked here? Hmmm….

    I got hooked into buying one, too! I got the green one. I ordered it from allbrands.com and got it in 3 days.

    How funny is that!! I hope she decides to come straight home, I know you are waiting for her..

  5. The fabulous Darlene allegedly said:

    You’re taunting them with Mimi - they know she’s just passing through and want her to stay. What a delightful addition she’d be!

    You’re a delight, Monica!

    Good for Mimi! Travel is SO broadening!

    What a fantastic picture! Funny how a cute Hello Kitty sewing machine can make the most serious of photos look happy! You are a fantastic photoshopper (I’m assuming that’s what you used?) I can’t wait to see her in London!

    Oh yeah, and I’m not allegedly commenting here - it really is me. Yep.

  8. The fabulous Kathy allegedly said:

    OMIGOSH! Your sense of humor has me busting up! I hope Mimi’s World Tour soon ends so she can meet up with her new sisters and mommy!

  9. The fabulous Angelina allegedly said:

    That would just drive me crazy. To have a new machine who needed to go on a world tour before arriving in my studio. You are a very understanding person.

  10. The fabulous cindy allegedly said:

    I hope she makes it to Australia to give your kid a kiss! Ireland would be incredible. Oh, she could visit exotic Wisconsin! :) ha ha ha ha

Farting around with needle & thread and then blogging about it.
