Hi! I'm still here, just really, really busy with stuff for Marguerite's birthday, and we're not even having a real party! I don't know if I'll get done everything that I need to do, but I'm praying for things to go well. So far, I need to stitch on the ribbons for the cape, crochet one more puppet, build the theater, cut and hem the playsilks (I can hem these after her birthday, I guess), make a pop-up birthday card (not to mention compose her birthday poem - I make one every year, remember?), bake her birthday cake... I must be nuts! I actually already edited my to-do list. The original one was way more ambitious. In the meantime, my husband will buy that one bought present and take time off work to spend Marguerite's day with us. Is that fair? Oh, I know I heap it all on me myself with my handmade pledge, so I shouldn't complain, but I grew up whiny, so... Anyway, I'll return to my usual dropping, clicking, commenting... on Thursday.
