As I write this post it is 12:01 am. Mother's Day is over. Sorry I'm a bit late. Hope you had a good one, whether you are a mother of the child of a mother.
It was a good weekend. My kids were in a show. It was my son's last with the group he's been working with for the past 3 1/2 years. We've watched him blossom from an awkward 7th grader to a confident young man in those years. That was in no small part due to all of the amazing opportunities he has had to perform with this program. Now it is time for him to move on and explore new interests and create music of his own, on his own terms.
He went out with a bang. The kids did a production of the musical "Hair" and he was one of the leads. The kid put his heart and soul into the role of "Berger" and it payed off. Mama was proud.
DD#2 was also in the show. As always when she sings, she gives her mom the chills. I will never tire of listening her.
It was fun creating the costumes for the show. DD#2 was well prepared except for the "dire" need of a crochet scarf at the last minute. That was easily remedied on Thursday night with a 6 mm crochet hook and some bulky yarn from the stash.
I improvised the pattern on this. It is based on my memory of a pattern in the Stitch and Bitch crochet book "The Happy Hooker". I say "based on my memory" because I was too lazy to run upstairs to find the book and get the actual pattern. Wasn't it enough that I dug through the stash for the yarn?
