Crazy Busy!

Whew! Between President's Day (the kids off of school), and a snow day on Wednesday (kids off of school), snow yesterday afternoon at rush hour, oh yeah, school's off again today. Luckily, Chickee's school has a cool system where they send out a recorded phone message to the house when the decision is made. We actually knew at bed-time last night that there would be no school today. Now, to keep the kids from hurting each other while they are bored to tears and can't go outside for more than 10 minutes at a time (with a 15 minute get dressed prep-to-go-outside and a 20 minute get-wet-clothes-off-and-mop-up-the-wet-floor), that will take care of 45 minutes of our day. Now what?

Well, there's always, Yahtzee (with real dice). Maybe I'll teach Chickee how to do Solitaire with real cards.

I'm thrilled to say that my "Sunny Spread" afghan pattern (the yellow squares one) is now the 4th most active recently published design on Ravelry. There are currently about a dozen or so people making the pattern and several more who have put it in their 'que' to do when they can. What fun! By far, seeing people interested in my designs is the best part of Ravelry!

That is exciting about so many people working your design. It's so pretty, and it'll be fun to see what changes people might make - different colors, etc.
