A blog about my life, knitting, and other stuff.

Mother's Day

Wes and the kids decided to "let me sleep in" this morning. Which means they woke me up several times and just as I was starting to get really pissed off they all cleared out. At one point this morning I woke up with my 6 year old lying next to me, the dog lying on me and my almost-8 year old sitting at the foot of the bed reading (the cat was in there somewhere too I think). I believe I had about 7 square inches of space to sleep on.

Anyway, they all took off and I slept alone(!) for a while then got up and did what any mother does when she finally has the place to herself--cleaned. I also got ready to make dye stock solutions but realized that each color needs to simmer for 30 minutes then cool in the pot and I have nine colors. I don't think that's how I want to spend my entire afternoon. I've set it all aside and will tackle at least part of it tonight.

Molly and Jeanne came over last night to knit. I finished sewing up Block #19 and knit and extra square. I am now ready to sew up the final block! Then I have to figure out how to arrange the blocks and continue sewing until I become demented.

Happy Mother's Day!
