Yes, that is my metal hoop she has on her head, and please excuse my messy house in the background. I took this pic a few months ago already. I was looking through the photos I need to get made to prints and found it today.
Not much going on, Katie is refusing to nap in her big girl bed the last few days, but she'll sleep there at night. Weirdo! It isn't that she doesn't like the bed - she's just discovered that once mommy tucks her in and walks away it is real easy to just get up and follow mommy out of the room instead of laying downing and going to sleep. I guess at night it is too dark to get up and follow mommy out of the room? Thankfully we didn't disasemble the crib yet, so I just move the matress over to the crib for the nap and plop her in the crib. She fusses for a few minutes but then accepts her fate - she must take a nap.
Stitching wise, I've begun to get ready for the Mirabilia RR that will start in January. I've decided on a layout and begun doing the prep work. I'm doing "frames" around each of the sections people will stitch in so I've been stitching those last night and today. So far I have 4 out of 7 done. I'll post a pic when I'm done with them just cause I'm sort of proud of the shape and the layout I designed.
