Well, I don't have any red felt, so I asked her what else she'd like. She said, "green Elmo." I asked for another idea, and she said, "red Elmo." So Daddy interjected with, "What about a butterfly?" Ellie: "Yeah!" Then he felt the need to tack on, "and a caterpillar...The Very Hungry Caterpillar." Thanks, Daddy.
I let Ellie pick the colors, right down to the floss, and she did a pretty good job. I, on the other hand, should have gotten off my behind and gotten the pins I was too lazy to get. Eh...Ellie won't care that he's lopsided.
As for the caterpillar? Not tonight. Three hours on a butterfly that should've taken about an hour is enough for one night.
