Look at me posting more than once in a week!!
These days I am racing to finish this bracelet.
It's a request from my mom, and a likeness to the logo of the company she works for. Next week she is going to be at a huge convention and requested I make this cuff. Which of course, I am happy to oblige, but I forget sometimes that I am a very, very, slooooooooooow peyote stitcher!
I am still finishing up my bestie's necklace, but we decided to exchange b-day gifts when we see each other in a few weeks. So I won't be in such a rush and get frustrated when this happens:
(When will I learn the actual amount of thread I can use without having these issues!!!)
Homeschooling is going well. Preparation was a bit of a struggle at first (read that: I didn't realize how much time preparing for the school day would take). But now that I'm into a groove, I can honestly say it's going great. I love the flexibility. For instance, today, it was so beautiful out, I pulled a zoo scavenger hunt off the internet and off to the zoo we went. We both had a lot of fun, and both learned a lot!!!
I saw so many gorgeous colors at the zoo today, I thought I'd play around with a palette!
Today is Patriot Day and a day of remembrance.
I was in D.C, eleven years ago today, with my newborn starting his second day of daycare, only a mile or so from the Pentagon. It was terrifying to say the least, but I am grateful we came out unscathed. My heart is with those who lost loved ones and of course my gratitude and respect go out to those who serve and protect!
