WiP: Where Horton Interferes with Progress

We had a busy weekend around here. Well, it wasn't so much the weekend itself as it was Monday. A friend's daughter (who also happens to be one of my daughter's friends) wanted to try out for the community theater's version of Seussical, but had never done an audition. Her mom brought her over Friday and I worked with her a little on her piece for the singing part of the audition. Then she ended up spending the night over here the next night. Sunday was okay, but by Monday the chaos started again. The kids had swim class, then VBS last night. After dropping them off, I decided to go to the Seussical auditions myself (I may regret admitting that on my blog if I don't get a part!). I had been goofing around with the song "Oom-pah-pah" from Oliver! and ended up doing that. They had us read and do a bit of a dance routine as well. We'll see how it all turns out. My neighbor does a lot with this theater and one of his daughters has started getting parts there as well. She auditioned and read for the baby kangaroo from Horton Hears a Who. I read for Mayzie. I wasn't as familiar with that story line.

***Update: Just got my email for a callback! That will be Wednesday night so I'll have to let you guys know how that works out afterward!***

There actually has been a little sewing in between all this as well. My kids have been getting buttons at church for the summer so I made them both lanyards to keep them on.

I've also been working on Bottled Rainbows. I have 5 in my finished stack, and three other blocks made and in my "to be finished" stack.

I've actually got the blue tacked on and it's sitting on my machine ready to get finished.

Congrats on the call back... totally fun. And I'm admiring your bottled rainbows blocks. I just put the last quilting stitch in mine last night and yet... I'm thinking more blocks would be so much fun!

I giggled when I added 5 + 3 and got 8 to realize that's what you're shooting to finish for your BR! I might be right there with you but I would really like to finish all 16. I spend more time choosing the fabrics and placement than anything else. Yours look great!

Hope you get the part in the play!

Congrats on the call back! Getting up in front of people singing and dancing would give me such stage fright! Good for you!

Love the blues!
