Surprises all around

So the most recent news is that Jonah did NOT have Chicken pox- it was apparently Roseola from the fever he'd had. That's great for me because it means that I can go to the ladies bible class tomorrow without being afraid that I'll infect someone's child, but sad because vengeance is mine, saith the chicken pox. Anyway- I may have caught whatever bug Jonah had because I've felt like all day. However, I did manage to actually do something today.

Yesterday I went to Target and Lo and Behold! They had some gloves in the dollar aisle. I had intended to make Jonah a little fox glove animal, but the pattern wouldn't adapt well and I had a hard time dying the gloves to a dark orange... basically I ended up butchering the poor creature.
Part of my problem is that I tend to be a little too much of a perfectionist, and I am also not the best seamstress. So I made Jonah a bunny out of the gloves I found at Target. On the first try.
The picture isn't the best, but I finished late and I didn't want to wait until morning to take a picture. The thread I used is white, so it stands out against the black gloves, but that's okay. Jonah threw it down like just about every other toy right now- he prefers my hairbrush and pens to just about anything. We let him play out in the yard this evening and he decided to dismantle Daddy's solar lights.
Also, I got a new haircut recently. It's a little layered so I don't have to work really hard to get a little style, and I got to keep most of my length.

I love you, I love your hair, and I love your son.

The bunny turned out really well. You're always so creative and crafty.

Jonah's hair is so long!

Miss you!!
