My Hero

Sometimes all the best intentions in the world won't save the day.

You wake up and discover the shawl you were looking forward to showing off is still wet.  It is no longer hotter than the surface of the sun here, it is merely a respectable 89 degrees, so I guess now nothing wants to dry?

You sit down to do some baby crafting and discover your big bottle of E-6000 glue is glued shut.  You sacrifice three fingernails and half a bottle of nail polish remover in an attempt to open the much needed tube.  It was a sacrifice made in vain.

You discover you accidentally bought an extra yard and a half of fabric when you bought fabric for the crib skirt.  Budgeting fail.  The pattern says you need 2 yards of fabric to make a matching crib sheet, but you manage to coax the fabric into being enough for the crib skirt AND a crib sheet.  Thrifty Crafting Win!  But then you break a needle sewing the basting line for the crib skirt.  And it is your last needle.  So.Much.Fail.

You run to the store for more supplies and since you are there you pick up some things for dinner.  And then you  happen to leave the meat that you purchased for dinner at the store.  And it isn't until you go to make dinner with a house full of hungry kids that you realize your mistake.

I think it is time for me to give up for the day and just go knit on the cute baby overall.  But I'm kinda afraid to touch them.  With the day I'm having the yarn might burst into flames.

Enter The Greatest stage left to save the day.

He spent the day painting the dressers for Sweet Pea and She-who-has-not-been-named's bedroom.

Aren't they perfect!  I love them so much.  They turned out exactly the way I pictured them in my head.  I'm so happy, every time I see them they make me smile.

He really is The Greatest!
