Week Nineteen: Soraya

By the time I post this, it will be Mother's Day in some parts of the States. This being my first proper Mother's Day, Fabulous Husband decided to make a run up to it by giving me a package of exotic chocolates every day this week (my favorite was the chocolate-covered bacon), and top it off with yarn (angora! it is in the mail and I am so excited! I love getting yarn in the mail!), and THEN when it got to be today and my plan for this week's pattern had failed miserably and I was working on not my first but my SECOND back-up, he bravely and selflessly entertained our darling Z all day. ("If you miss a week of the Project," said he, "it is not going to be because I didn't support you.")

Guys, Fabulous does not even begin to cover it.
