I know that's a song lyric- but what song? I think semi-modern country? Anyone?
Anyway! The power managed to stay on all weekend, which was probably no small feat, judging by an article in the Sunday paper... My weekend was odd as The Hubby worked all weekend as usual, but different hours. Normally Fri and Sat nights are mine for sewing, but he was home later in the evenings, and I kind of enjoy spending time with him. So, I got a bit of work done Sunday while the kiddos napped.
2 of the three snakes are done! You can't tell, but 2 blocks in the 3rd snake actually need to be pieced- the one extra I was missing, and I ripped one completely and cut a new one for color reasons... Maybe tonight I will finish? Though, now that I've typed that, I've cursed myself. After the snakes are done, I will lay it out on the bed and decide how big the borders need to be. Since my blocks are bigger than Denyse Schmidt's (oops), I think I may end up cutting thinner borders. But who knows? Also- I think I'm going to tie this one. Her's is, and it looks fantastic with the simple design. She says she uses "crochet cotton" or embroidery floss to tie. Can anyone tell me what crochet cotton is? Yarn, or thread, or something else entirely?
Sunday was a nice day. The kids and I hung at the park with some good friends in the morning, then went back-to-school shopping in the afternoon. Princess Girl has decided, prematurely, that Kindergarten sucks, but, she likes her new school clothes, so maybe I can convince her school itself will be okay. She only has 5 days left at her daycare! She's been there since she was about 20 months old, and she is pretty freaked to be leaving. We have one month of no daycare until kindergarten, which totally sucks. They kick the kindergarten kids out at the end of July, even though for most all of them, K won't start until later August (the 23rd in our case). Brutal. Train Boy will keep on going there, though, even while we scramble to cover Princess Girl. Oh well.
