I am finally done all the backstitch on the humbug.
I just have to do the long surrounding backstitch, and sew it together.
I'm so ready to have this finished.
I decided to use some lovely purple overdyed ribbon I got in a detritus bag from Vikki Clayton for the hanger. It matches the colors of the lavendar pretty well, and I got a lot of it, so I think this is a good way to start using it up.
I haven't picked my next project yet, but I think it's going to be a freebie. I've slacked this entire month and not stitched on a single free chart. BOOGER. But, realistically, March has not been the best of months for me, and so, I'm not being too hard on myself.
This is a big day wedding planning-wise. I have to drop off our documents showing our intent to marry tonight. I did laugh a little; I had to fill out if I was a maiden or widow. Well, I'm not a widow, but I haven't felt like a maiden in, sheesh, 10 years. I think I pretty much graduated from college and fell into a matronly life. And I did laugh a bit that we had to put our parents' names on there, even though he's 41 and I'm 33; it felt vaguely like filling out those yellow cards from school, but I did it. I figured our children's children's children might need that info to track us down one day. I justify a lot of things these days that way. I don't know if it's good, but it works for us.
