Since there was cake left over and since there was icing left over and since it was 3 A.M. - R's most creative hour - she came up with this creation. She hated it, but I thought it was pretty clever. For some reason it reminds me of a bandanna. I, however, crashed some time after this cake was finished. Although R is creative in the wee morning hours - I AM NOT!
Some knitting has been going on too. I've been trying to dig into the cotton dishcloth yarn I've got in a huge basket in the living room. I needed some mindless knitting and dishcloths provide that. Plus, my MIL loves hand knit dishcloths and I need to build up a Christmas supply for her. I'm on my third one so far. L and I have had mini marathons of 'The Dresden Files' every night and I needed to knit - can't sit still ya know - and I wanted to watch Harry Dresden at his finest, so dishcloths answered many needs this week!
Today was our mad rush to the County Fair office. Every year R signs up to enter 40 - 50 items. Every year it is chaos. This year she has gotten it down to 20 items. I hope that goes down in the next few weeks because all items have to be turned in in less than four weeks and only one or two things have been completed. I didn't enter this year. I figured with home improvements, home schooling and breathing I had enough going on.
Have a safe Labor Day weekend!
