"There will be little rubs and disappointments everywhere, and we are all apt to expect too much; but then, if one scheme of happiness fails, human nature turns to another; if the first calculation is wrong, we make a second better: we find comfort somewhere . . . "
- Mansfield Park by Jane Austen
I did make progress on Becky's blanket while visiting Mom (ack ~ I hope Becky isn't reading. I don't think she does). Our pre-concert lounging time at the Kentucky State Fair made for a perfect blanket-border opportunity (especially since my mom napped beside me for an hour or so) while waiting for the Oak Ridge Boys to bop on stage.
I have less than 5 weeks to finish this up, if we're lucky. I've hit the moss stitch border, so I think we're home-free. If we can ignore that ugly little bloop on one of the yarn over spirals. I think we can. I'm okay with it...if I squint.
Did I mention the ...interesting... crowd at the Oak Ridge Boys concert?
Personally, I roll in an entirely different direction. But that cute little thang beside him seemed perfectly happy to roll whichever way he wanted to roll her once the sun went down.
