I'm working on a pattern for a infant/toddler sized dress. I looked and looked, and couldn't find exactly what I wanted (as usual) so I'm just writing my own pattern. Which is harder for something like a dress than it is for a hat. I'm hoping to have something marketable, so it's better for me to use my own patterns anyway. I've got to crank out this month's WACO newsletter before this time next week too. Which means relying on other's to get their part done as well. Someone else has to put together the calendar of events, which is what takes me the longest to write up. I did ok for the first quarter, in sales. Better than I'd anticipated, being post Christmas. I haven't knitted much in the last month. I worked all through Jan. and the first half of Feb. and I've sort of hit a plateau since them. I've been stuck on a project I don't really like, so I've been dragging my feet- that and I have been reading a lot. I don't like having more than one project going at a time, so I refuse to start anything new until this one is done. But I think I may give up on it. My heart just isn't in it. And I am pretty enthused about starting the sun dress.
Kids are doing amazingly well right now. B is walking 2/3rds of the time. She can't get up on her own, so when she plops down, she has to crawl over to something to stand back up. But she's doing so well! We also had 4 nights in a row where she slept ALL night, in her own bed. last night was a bust, but she's got a tooth cutting through, so maybe that was it. I was starting to feel like a normal person again with all that good sleep. It's hard for me to believe she'll turn one in a month. It seems like it was just the other day we brought her home all snugly and new. I'd been feeling like a slacker on R's school work lately. He didn't do any worksheets or work book pages while we were gone on our trip, or much the week before. BUT, yesterday we painted, and he did a whole page of letter A's that looked really good. he also painted a really nice rocket ship. I'm bummed I didn't get a picture before he painted over all of it. I'm hoping today we can do some other sort of activity.
The kids are going nuts, and it's taken me forever to get this written, so I best go see what mischief they are up to now.
