Today I sent my baby to school *sob*
I thought I would be fine. I was ready for her to go. She was driving me crazy. Hey I love the girl but I can only play "Go Fish" and "I spy" so many times before I want to impale myself on some dpns. But last night around 11 I had a major freak out. I couldn't remember what time the bus came, I was worried she would have trouble buying her lunch, I wondered if I had taught her enough things about being a good person so she would make friends. I worried that she wouldn't have fun. I hope the other girls are all nice to her. She's so quick to cry I hope she doesn't cry. So far she's lived in a world where people adore her. No one teases her, no one is deliberately mean to her. She is now out of my protective care. I hope I've prepared her. I'm sure she'll be just fine. I wouldn't be me if I didn't worry about this stuff.
I finished this for her last night.
There was no pattern. I just made a rectangle, seamed it together and attached an I-cord handle. I filled it with a few small toys and put it in her backpack for the bus ride home. I hope she likes it.
My official flower count is....Are you ready?.....
Flower Count = 0!!!!
I did do this
But I don't like it. I think there is too much white and not enough yellow. I'm going to have to play around with the chart until I get something I like. I've also decided not to do horizontal flowers. The pattern calls for the flowers to be horizontal on the end panels and vertical on the middle panels. I like the vertical flowers better, so they'll all be vertical. I'll just alternate the way the stems lean.
And because I'm such a bad girl I picked up some yarn at Wal-Mart last night and cast on for the Pinwheel baby blanket. Then I ripped and re-cast, and ripped and re-cast. I must have tried six or seven times. I've finally got something I think is going to work. I'm a believer in the psychic powers of Tara. Right after I read her message I got irrefutable if slightly late proof that this blanket is definitely not for me.
