DQ as Cleopatra!

DQ as CleopatraLast night we attended yet another school production. This time it was DQ's school chorus production. She was really excited because she got one of the few speaking parts in the production. They usually go to the kids in the 6th grade and she's only in 5th. It was quite an honor.

I decided to try my hand at filming it. Let's just say that there is quite a bit of room for improvement in my filming skills. Of course DQ is just thrilled to be on You Tube. Her friends are always sending her links to videos they find there and she is a big fan. I don't think it matters much to her what the film quality is because, in her mind, she's a Star. Anyway, I totally understand if you choose not to watch it (unless you're family in which case it's a requirement and there will be a quiz later) but it was very cute. That could just be my mommy pride speaking.

Tonight we have no events to attend and I couldn't be happier. I get to go home and supervise DQ as she makes scones for Renaissance Day tomorrow. I will have plenty of time to finish spinning for my Spun Stitches project and continue knitting the teacher gifts. Speaking of those gifts - I was pleased that yeasterday's post served as a public service announcement. I'm so happy I'm not the only one who forgets till the last minute.

Last night I was sitting and working on gift #3 and hating the bobles because the constant flipping of the work for each one is way beyond tedious. I reached over to the coffee table where my laptop sat (so convenient!) and typed in "backwards purl". Minutes later I was studying the first tutorial that popped up. How is it that I never tried this before? It's not hard at all and once I got the hang of it I flew through those bobbles. Hooray!
