Missed the gathering in Dallas

First Logan got sick, then my mom, and then me. So that made me miss the gathering of stitchers in Dallas-Fort Worth yesterday. I had been looking forward to this for weeks! This always seems to happen when I have plans. I'm pretty unhappy about it. I really wanted to meet my fellow stitchers from the boards.

So instead I stayed home in bed and read a book (a good book, granted). I also managed to trace and cut out my pattern on freezer paper for Zelda's Fancy Hat. I am toying with the idea of making two hats, one for me and one for the silent auction for charity at work. We'll see how it goes. I need to get cracking if I'm going to do it.

I have a free chart up for offer. It is She Sells Seashells by Country Cottage Kids, which I stitched for an exchange. The pattern is not perfectly crisp anymore (it's plain paper), and I've misplaced the plastic bag for it, but it doesn't have any marks. If you'd like it, please leave a comment with your email address (or email me your address if you don't want to post it). I'll draw a name if there's more than one person interested.

Coming soon: a progress pic of Lady of Shalott.

Isn't that the way motherhood goes sometimes?? My son is NEVER sick. He's 3 and the worst he's been through is a single ear infection. When did he get that ear infection?? Christmas Eve! The closest open urgent care was 30 minutes away! We never go on vacation...ever. And when does our never sick son start running a fever?? The day before we are supposed to go on our 9 day long vacation! Wouldn't you know?? ;)

Hugs to Logan and his sacrificing mama.
