It's been an emotional last few weeks for me for personal reasons and with COVID-19 it has only gotten crazier! What makes me laugh? As of Sunday (three days ago) I still had no idea. I asked my fifth grade students (who I miss already!) and my own kids. None of their ideas jelled.
I finally decided on a silly shoe because they always make me smile. Did you know any shot from Star Wars with Admiral Tarkin where his feet don't show he was in bunny slippers? Cracks me up. And my sister has Monty Python Killer Rabbit Slippers.
So I went to good old Google and searched silly shoes. I finally came upon someone with what looked like a high heeled roller skate. I couldn't stop laughing. That was it. So here is my quilt! Made with all Island Batik fabrics of course!
Could my son's Koala wear it?!
I love this amazing purple and black print!
My son and I have been doing silly drawings. He has stomach flu (not corona) and I've been trying to entertain him. I draw the first half of the picture and then he has to finish it.
So here's a lightsaber handle. It got turned into a toothpick dispenser.
And a hot dog...that got made into soy sauce. Check out the sodium nutrition facts he included. The kid has the best sense of humor.
I hope I made you laugh today.
I hope you get to quilt today.

Love your roller skate shoe. Being a "shoe" person it certainly brought a giggle to my day.ReplyDelete
That would not be in my closet - high heel nor roller skates - I can fall over air.ReplyDelete
Your roller skate is a hoot! And your son is clever.ReplyDelete
Lovely idea. The drawings are very funny. Great sense of humor.ReplyDelete
Love the shoe! And the drawings with your son. Oh, and the stuffed animal wearing the shoe. Oh and the purples. So.... I think I love everything about this and the chuckle it evoked!ReplyDelete
He gets his sense of humor from his moma...enjoyed your post but those shoes make my feet hurt for some reason....hahaReplyDelete
too funny, I was just imagining some fancy business woman in a pencil skirt with these shoes on and then rolling all over the place and falling and the skirt ripping..... stay safe and healthy!ReplyDelete
Hahahahaha all the way around. I got a huge laugh when I saw your high heel skate, because it goes perfectly with todays 365 silly theme "awkward moments day". Yep, I'm laughing at seeing me sprawled out on the floor after trying to wear your skate! Love love love the pictures you and your son has done. What a great way to enjoy being sick and having to stay home. You guysReplyDelete
"rocked" making us laugh!
Perfect idea for a woman "On-the-Go." Have a sister who would like it. Your son is clever like mom.ReplyDelete
that is so funny about Admiral Tarkin and his slippers. i love your shoe. very clever. i do hope your son gets better soon. take care. quilty hugsReplyDelete
The world is crazy, so we have to just laugh to survive. I couldn't have used those shoes without wheels, and absolutely not with. Thank you for bringing joy to us just now Suzy.ReplyDelete
It surely made me laugh. I am a disaster in either the high heels or the roller skates. Both can be deadly!ReplyDelete
Such fun. Love how creative you and your son are, too.ReplyDelete
Yes - I did laugh out loud seeing the shoe on the bear! Why that is funny - I don't know but it was. Great way to entertain your child. I'm going to use that half and half idea.ReplyDelete
I love the high heel roller skate, Suzy! And especially on the koala!! Thanks for the giggle!ReplyDelete
I have wished for a pair of high-heel roller skates more than once! Love your project! It definitely made me laugh!ReplyDelete
Your high-heeled roller skate is fantastic! Absolutely made me laugh, but not as much as the expiration date on your son's soy sauce drawing! :)ReplyDelete
this put a smile on my face, very clever!ReplyDelete
Awesome Awesome, who woulda thunk a shoe could make you laugh ... Love it Suzy!!ReplyDelete
Hi Suzy! Oh, I am missing my school kiddos and teachers as well. I'm not actually a teacher - I work in the Board of Education office, but oh how I miss everyone. I just LOVE your purple shoe! I would totally wear them in a heartbeat. Thanks for the smile today! ~smile~ RoseanneReplyDelete
Beautiful shoe!! I don't think I could skate with those heels!!ReplyDelete
Love that shoe! Good idea to draw with your son that way--makes the creative juices flow. Thanks for sharing!ReplyDelete
Yes, that is a silly shoe. Great idea to pass the time with your son.ReplyDelete
That shoe is crazy and adorable. Looks like you are having fun.ReplyDelete
Love your shoe, and your son's creative drawings! I miss "my" kids too- 11th and 12th graders. Don't know when I'll see them again, but we start online instruction next week. Fingers crossed.ReplyDelete
How do you download the roller skate shoe pattern. I can't find a download button. Thank youReplyDelete
That is just too cute!ReplyDelete
Seriously hillarious! I can completely imagine some woman I know wearing those with wheels on them!ReplyDelete
I would break my leg for sure in those roller heels!ReplyDelete
High heels are hard enough to walk in so rollers on the bottoms would certainly be entertaining if I were wearing them - but perhaps not a laughing matter!! Great idea for a play project with your son.ReplyDelete
Rollers on high heels sounds scary. lol Cute project.ReplyDelete
Oh, my! I can't walk in heels that high and pointy...I can only imagine how much trouble I'd be in if they had wheels, too :DReplyDelete
