Sunday, April 6, 2014 for Yellow!!!

I'm almost finished with this madcap sew-a-long
Today is Y.
Not the big existential Y questions.
but just the cheery little ones.
I'm joining Katy as she stitches
through all 26 of the letters of the alphabet.
Today is all about yelling.
Yelling, for Yellow.
It's here. It's really here.
And we made it.
Each year as the endless winter
fights for one more day of grey,
I hang on for the yellow.
This year we took a trip so I
was slightly less manic with the sunshine crave.
But when it came out...
Every fiber in my body exhaled.
And the happy dance was on a molecular level.
Pu, the biggest of the Little's
asked for a yellow dress.
Then it morphed into a yellow turtleneck.
Then it changed and changed and...
then she didn't want it anymore.
 Le sigh.
(Even though she looks innocent, I think she's probably thinking about perpetrating a wedgie.)
But we had bought this very bright,
super soft bamboo on a big girl date.

So I sewed it up,
and some sister somewhere will rock
the YELLow.
'Cause we made it to spring,
and it ought to be celebrated!
 Did you make it too?
