Ups and Downs
Yesterday, I was feeling pretty down about things. My dress has wings and my quilt blocks are wonky. Not the end of the world, right? But still. I worked hard on that dress, and I tried really really hard to do a good job on those blocks, so I was frustrated.
But today is a new day. Above is Daphne's latest knitting project. She is making a blanket for her friend Anne's tiny stuffed turtle. I was watching her knit this morning before school, and she's getting pretty good at it! She has picked up speed and found a rhythm. It makes me happy.
After she got on the bus, I took a walk around town. This is my favorite time of year. It was nice and chilly this morning. When I got back, I was inspired to finally try to make a dent in the playroom situation. It took me all morning, but I made some progress:
Far from complete, but Rome wasn't built in a day! If you look at the picture a few posts ago and compare, it looks about a million times better. It feels good to have some success.
Tonight I have my quilt class. My mom is letting me borrow a special quilting presser foot for my machine that should make things easier and better. And I ordered fabric to try again on the dress. And tonight is Project Runway night! Yay! Things are looking up!
At least there are no lions.
