Yes, life continues to be busy here. The high school musical is out of the way with great success, but everything else still to come. And I forgot to add AP tests to the list. Sigh.
Anyway, stitching first. Here's Ann Grant.
Here's another reason I find over dyed silks like Belle Soie frustrating. See the bird below the house and the path from the right door? They're different colors. They're supposed to be very obvious different colors since I'm supposed to fill in the windows with the lighter of the two colors with the darker of the two being the window surround. But my Belle Soie is obviously not different enough from the other (an AVAS) color. Sigh. Well, it saves me having to fill in the windows I guess. The two colors of pink in the large star are different colors too. Hard to tell, huh? These two pinks are Threadgatherer Silk 'n Colors though. Oh well. There's also two different browns in that diamond, one a Belle Soie, one an AVAS. Hard to tell, huh? Sigh.
Whatever. I still love the piece. And I got all the over one words done! Yay!
As I said, the boy child had his musical this past weekend. It was a great success, and left the boy child yearning to do more. Fingers crossed he succeeds in landing a part next year! Here's a picture of the boy child on stage.
The show they did was Anything Goes. They did a great job! The boy child just had a bit part, but he was also in the ensemble singing and -- gulp! -- dancing. He wasn't happy about the dancing part, but I guess he must have been a better dancer than a lot of the boys in the cast since he was chosen to dance as opposed to just waving his arms on the upper deck.
Mia will be happy the boy child is through with the musical. She missed him while he was gone so much. Here she is doing one of those things she does to look out the window. When she was a tiny kitten, she had to leap over to the windowsill -- and it was a loooong leap! Now look at what she does instead.
Pretty cute, huh? She also likes to sit on the windowsill. The good news is she's still nice and petite. I'm hoping she's stopped growing now. She's ten months old!!!
Well, the boy child still has tons to do. Hopefully by mid-May, things will start easing up a bit. I hope!
Oh! I forgot to tell everyone what Mia's new toy was in this post. There were a few who guessed it. It's a bra insert from one of the girl child's swim suits! lol! Mia loves it!
Thanks for stopping by and saying hi! One more week to spring break for the boy child! Yay! Have a great week, everyone!
