ups and downs

Me working on secret project (up)
just before realizing it had a measurement problem (down)
which resulted in a migraine the next day (really down)
but it's going okay now (up).

Then Leah brought me a bouquet from the garden (up).

Leah's Swallowtail Shawl, where we discovered she had difficulty understanding the instructions for the Lily of the Valley section. She replaced the nupps with beads, no problem. She did all the lacy goodness, no problem. But she misunderstood the direction the nupps beads should go in on each side of the center stitch, ending up with zig zags (and some of those incomplete) instead of graceful curves.

BIG, TERRIBLE, AWFUL, NO GOOD DOWN.

This too shall pass. Ripping to commence soon.
