I had an interesting arc of events yesterday. I was lucky enough to get a sale in my shop while I was schooling, so I had a kitty ear headband to get made once we were done. Unfortunately the youngest child had her mind set on playing chess and the oldest child didn't want to, leaving me to play. No, this was not unfortunate right off the bat, it got there as we all realized two things. I cannot play a game badly enough to let someone, even my child win, and the she is not emotionally stable enough to play a game she will lose. Let's just say that afternoon was filled with tears, laundry, reminders of our personality flaws, and promises to try again tomorrow.
After this I got the bobbins wound again in preparation for whatever I take on today. I think I might try the headside again so I get grasp where to leave the bobbins after finishing an element as that seems to be an issue for me. Other than that I'll probably make yet another pair of cat ears so I can have a backup pair on hand. Oh, and at least one game of chess, I can't forget that.
