My First Gray Hare HD

Now that's a heading to make you stop and pause!

I managed to frog the hot pink and replace it with light pink, and I personally like it better this way. I'm not sure the hand-dyed linen is perfect for this piece, but it was leftover and I like the effect. I rarely used hand-dyeds just because I never know how it's going to turn out, even with a preview picture.

This chart (by 4 My Boys) was in a pile BeckySC sent me a while back when she was cleaning out her stash. Thanks, Becky! I thought this one was cute because Matt's forever plucking my gray hairs. I had only a few when we met, but after the kid, I just seemed to get them a lot, more than he can keep up with. My mom's family grays late, so at almost 40 I'm thinking a handful isn't too bad. Poor Matt was all gray in his 20s. We'll see what Logan gets. Maybe our genes will balance each other out, though Matt's seem dominant at the moment.

Matt also finds it funny that I'll have one long hair that's brown, then gray, then brown, etc. I guess it's my stress levels.

If anyone wants this chart, please leave a comment saying so and your email address.

Sick again: We got a call from daycare yesterday that Logan had a fever. He's coughing again too. Matt's taking him to the doctor this morning. Poor boy. It seems that daycare or the weather is keeping him constantly sick.

I really like the fabric. Poor Logan, it could be daycare, or just that he is at the age when he is still building up immunities and is coming down with everything around! Poor you too. It can be so disruptive to a job to have to be constantly dealing with illness. But you are still a stitching machine!

I like it better with the light pink too. Congrats on your finish!

I hope Logan is feeling better soon!

That piece is so cute! Hope Logan gets to feeling better. Mayber they are passing it back and forth at the daycare center.

Cute HD - and I agree, the plae pink is MUCH better. Medieval minature looks awesome - can wait to see it with beads.

Hope Logan is feeling better soon. I'm sure it's an age thing.. he'll get over it soon

Very cute, and yes, I'd agree about it looking better with the different pink. I hope your little boy gets better soon.

Very cute HD!! I like the fabric. Hope Logan feels better. My DDs were sick quite a bit while in daycare, but it built up their immune systems. Once they got to school, they almost never had sick days.

Is it too late to request this one?

It is perfect. I am forever trying to pull grey hairs from my DH and expect him to tell me the minute he sees one on me. (I know he won't though....grrrr....)
