In this last picture of their room, David is wearing my very first felted hat. That was so much fun and I cannot wait to felt something else! If you remember, the hat looked like THIS
when it was first on the needles. Wildtomato talked me through it, as 2YO had ripped the labels off my yarn and the felting instructions were lost. After letting it agitate in the washer in hot water for about 12 minutes, I stuffed it full of plastic grocery bags and used a saucepan lid to make the brim a little bit wider.
Like I said, it was a lot of fun and I can't wait to do another project like this again. I'm currently working on a hat for my friend's baby, who may very well be born by now. Her mom was in the birthing center last night at the hospital. I'm just waiting to hear that she's here.....
I really do hope that I can get into a better routine with the addition of this fourth child during the week. I hope that means that I can actually set aside some more time for 'me.' I went four days straight last week without even turning my computer on. I must say that I did feel a bit accomplished after that, but the feelings of withdrawl seem to be lingering a bit. As of now, we have parent meeting for softball, practice for both girls at the same time on opposite ends of town, a St. Patrick's Day party at the neighbors' house, and birthdays to celebrate. And that's just the schedule for TODAY. I'll take my chaos the only way I can swallow it...one day at a time.
Have a wonderful weekend!
