Tiptoe Through the Tulips

Yesterday was Buttercup's last day of dance camp. The moms were invited in to watch the last 30 minutes of class. Nutmeg took dance camp also, but they did not have a parent day because "they are big girls now and need to work." I was a little sad about that...
The little girls were definitely working hard! I doubt that I could do the "passe and hold."
She just looked so peaky, and no wonder. She has a 100 degree temp this morning. Nutmeg has been sick since Wednesday.

I cannot start a cross stitch project and work straight through with no new starts. That would be like starting a book and finishing it all at once or like taking everything out of the pantry and then immediately putting it all back. What madness that would be!
So I made a new start yesterday on Birds of a Feather's "Bloom Where You Are Planted." I am using the DMC colors becasue they are very pretty. I could not get a good picture, but trust me! The stitch count is 65x66, so I should finish this in no time, right? Hmmmm...we'll see. Little girls are calling me, and I did take all the books off of two of the homeschool shelves this morning....
