TygrLilies version of..."FlyGuy"

My SisterLily, Becky...

(no, not the same Becky as in my last post.
Apparently, I have an affinity for people named Becky)

...anyway, Becky is an elementary school teacher waaay far away in South Texas.

{Angleton, Texas, to be exact.}

Well, this elementary school class in Angleton, Texas has a fabulous group of readers!
Boy, do they love to read!


They read everything and anything.

Road signs,

cereal boxes

passing trains,

even those little tags
 on the inside of the tongues
 of their sneakers!?

"Size 6."
" All man-made materials"
"Made in the USA"

There's some perfectly good reading to be had on the inside of a sneaker!

But, if there are no sneakers around,

(say it's summer and a flip flop kind of day)

Why, one of those readers might just pick up a book.

And if it's a boy-type of reader,

(or a girl type of reader who might just be a little tired of Fancy Nancy)

Why, they might just pick up this book...

And so, in Honor of

"Mrs. Washington's Wonderful Weeders umm, I mean,

Your very own FlyGuy comin' atcha!

(He took off this morning from San Diego- hope he gets there soon!)

Keep on Reading!


  1. that's really cute, in a weird creepy way lol :)

  2. How fun is that? I love little readers! I think they grow into GREAT big readers. And reading makes life SO much more enjoyable! Stopping over from SITS. Nice to meet you : )

  3. Whoa! What a great doll! You did such a great job! How neat :)

    Stopping by from SITS! ;)

  4. I think this is awesome!! What a great gift for a class of readers!

  5. Fly Guy is adorable! The class is going to be fighting over him! LOL Soooo cute! :-)

  6. How cute is that?! What a cool talent you have. The only thing I did with my limited crochet skills (my grandma, too, taught me the chain) was to make a couple of baby blankets.

  7. That is so cute! I want to learn how to crochet better. (I too can crochet a chain stitch and not a whole lot more!) Even more so now after seeing your cute creations!
    Thanks for stopping by on my SITS day (it's taking me forever to get to everyone's blog, but I'm determined!!)

  8. Oh, I love Fly Guy! I can't resist a doll that goes with a book.

    Are you in SD?
