Oh bother! - nuntium duocentesimum vicesimum quintum

Isn't that what Winnie the Pooh says when things don't go exactly right?  Oh bother.

Friday was meetings all morning and I got almost all the way around on Round 9. Then I picked it up Sunday morning, for some reason looked at the pattern again and realized that I'd done almost the whole thing wrong with 6-p-6 on the thrown rings instead of 4-p-4.  So out came the scissors.
Monday morning we had meetings so I got back some but then it was close up the classroom, run errands for the trip and bake a birthday cake (elder daughter now 20!) and biscotti for younger daughter who loves them so and I haven't had time to make them.  So I'm not done with 9 yet and today is 10.  Maybe I won't even look until I'm done with 9.  Maybe.  Oh, who am I kidding?  I'm going to read my Feedly next!

Leaving for Italy on Sunday with 17 students, one of my best friends (Science teacher next door who learned to tat a few years ago), 5 parents and my younger daughter.  That should keep me out of trouble.

Round 9, end of year and roses - nuntium duocentesimum vicesimum quartum

I got Round 9 done last weekend but had NO time to post- it's the end of the school year.  Now we're done with students but I went in today for 5 hours.  Still not done but at least I won't stay so late on Monday.
 And the front rose bush was looking good Friday morning so here are a few pictures.
