I believe my socks have gone to college. I suppose I should be proud, but I have a feeling they were sent there against their will. Two weeks ago as Baby prepared for his return to campus, my wonderful husband was sorting socks and helping to stuff Baby's laundry bag.

I believe that my husband (still wonderful, here in Texas we do not shoot men who do the dishes or the laundry) put all the black socks that he knew were not his into one of Baby's bags and that's how my socks have ended up three hours away at University.
I am curious what eventually happens to my socks. They don't fit Baby. They have never come back.
Here's what I have done to remedy this situation.
Bought new black socks.
|The only black, cotton socks I could find made in USA were these 'short' ones.|
Combined favorite shades of bright pink embroidery floss and -
|The embroidery floss was made in France. |
There goes my plan to only buy local for a week.
- gave each pair that 'pretty with pink' touch. Yes, I could have done this on the sewing machine but I just like the hand stitched look - perfection is highly over rated. Now, with just this little change, my socks are ready for Valentines Day and beyond. I suppose if I had lots of family members I could do each person's socks in their own unique color. One thing I do know, the men in my life will have no problem recognizing my socks.
|Silly, but it only took 30 minutes or so and it gave me something|
to do while I was watching TV.
Sometimes a woman's got to do what a woman's got to do.
Have you made any little changes in this new year?
