It's Not Easy, I Must Want To Do It
I didn't anticipate the clam shell fabric reading as large dots. It's actually little rainbows but I keep thinking of it as clam shells.
Time to get busy on her Shoe Shop Girl quilt. She's been working at Famous Footwear since she turned 16 & tomorrow is her 18th birthday. One more thing I can't come to grips with.
The pattern is Angie Padilla's Walk With Me.
That slingy sandal was such a pain in the butt! It was supposed have an ankle strap but it was so thin, I decided we could do without.
So, I'm looking through the patterns only to realize I didn't save the final block! Yikes. Now did I do that on purpose because I knew she'd hate the boots or did I just flake out? The world may never know. Which means, I don't have a 12th block. I think I'll make Hunter draw a pair of boots for me.
I've been working on other little things here and there but mostly my life has been busy figuring out how to parent.
I'm now a Home School Parent. Crazy, right? The decision was kind of made for me. One of my kids is, let's just say special needs, and the school system wasn't working anymore. Naturally, because we let one home school the other demanded like treatment.
My house will never be quiet again. It's a lot to wrap my head around.
