Will It Ever End

The volume of events and deadlines coming my way is like being sucked up in a tornado.

Birthday 7 for our daughter. Must have party. Sleepover before school didn't work out so we opted for the Dublin Zoo. 12 girls, 2 boy, 2 parents and we managed to come out with the same amount as we came in with. Not sure if they were the right children, but we had the numbers!! Weather cooperated, food was made and intact, plenty of drinks for thirsty kids, party bag stuff purchased according to zoo theme and some moms pitched in with their family zoo passes, so it was a lot cheaper than I thought it was going to be.

The final spinning is in the works. I over dyed the pastel, but managed to nearly felt the roving beyond use. After much stretching, tugging, pulling and very slow spinning, the yarn is hanging.

Make the actual birthday cake. I will be away until evening on the daughter's birthday. I know, I'm a terrible mom. We had the family party tonight with lots of cake, grilled cheese sandwiches and tomato soup. Her request. Fine. She is thrilled. I am happy to be part of that. I love being her mom.

Next will be getting ready to go to Birmingham, England tomorrow with 4 other knitting fanatics to the Knitting and Stitching Show. We will be there for the weekend and return Sunday night late. I'm looking forward to being away from the list. Still need to pack. Shouldn't be much, it's only 3 days. I'll have to let you know what happens. I do have an assignment though. I need to take pictures of an exhibit that will be on display at the show. It will be coming to the Dublin show in November. The Feltmakers Ireland Guild will be hosting the exhibit and need to have an idea of what to look forward to. Plus one of my friends has a piece in the show. Cool!

Lots of knitting on the list too. Just bought some yarn for a scarf for one of my nieces for Christmas. Also have a baby item to knit as we have a new baby (Not Mine) in our family. She came last night.
