The 13th Labor of Hercules

I must have been a really, really, really good mom this year.

We have a general rule about Mother's Day here. I'm hokey enough to want some fussing, but we tend to limit it to a card, flowers, and no cooking or cleanup.

This fabulous thing is the Northern Lights blanket kit from Fleece Artist.

So, maybe they had some help - well, how else were they to know they were supposed to throw the general rules out the window this year. Maybe I've been drooling over this for months and months. Maybe I sat them down and said, "This one." Maybe I explained that, while I didn't love the choices currently available, that I had emailed and the very nice owners told me what to do if I wanted the kit in a different colorway, something, maybe, gold and blue and deep red. So, maybe, I had already done that.

The color is Hercules (scroll through "Colours - Variegated"). Terribly appropriate, since the hero is the subject of John's independent study Latin project.

This is also going to be epic. Although, I hope, not tragic.
