I’m still a little twisted up over yesterday’s events, all of which have been resolved, but the two lowlights include having to take Boxer out of his soccer game for pushing kids down and the subsequent crying and general upset-ness he showed to the point that the coach on the other team started tearing up over it when Boxer went to apologize and go back in the game. And then at the Fall Festival we lost Bloomer for a good 15 minutes when she wandered off from the playground and snuck into a bounce house.
Then this morning she started putting laundry in the toilet and I LOST IT. Not just because it was laundry, but because it was a shirt that I had made. For me. Which is rare. The scene was not pretty. I apologized to her later, but still. Not too proud of that.
October has not been our finest month.
So rather than dwell on that stuff which is making me feel like I still have PMS even though I know I don’t, here is the quilt that I made for the auction for the Fall Festival. The school mascot is a Star, hence the large medallion in the middle.
I have decided I’m not bothering to donate quilts to auctions anymore because they never go for what they are worth. I am doing one more for Good Mews this year, but I think it will be my last. I put too much effort into them and seeing it go for $20 is simply not a good use of my time and the space required to display it properly (which the school did not, frankly, for this one).
But hey! On that note, I’m going to have a couple more baby quilts up on my etsy shop shortly. Including a fleece one for $25. Now, please resume not looking at me while I’m this grumpy.
