HTB is going camping this weekend. Without moi. I have to work. Booger! I told him the dogs and I were going to watch chick flicks and eat ice cream all weekend. I know he worries he is going to walk in to find them eating delivery pizza and Breyers ice cream out of the container, watching Titanic . . . in bed, drooling all over the sheets. Silly HTB . . .
We're going to watch Dazed and Confused.
I guess it's OK. Really. It will give me a chance to catch up on my stitching. I figure, if I go to the store tonight, that gives me all evening tomorrow night, into Sunday morning to get the bookmark finished in order to mail it out this week. I do have a question, though. It's one of those pre-finished bookmarks, but the back is exposed. Is there a simple way to finish that, to cover the back? My back isn't messy, but I don't want to half-way do this, and leaving it open feels "half-way." I was thinking felt, or would iron-on interfacing look OK? I'm also trying to finish HTB's Sanman freebie. I want to do it as a flat-fold and I figure it will be easier to fiddle with if he's not here to see it. I'm trying to decide between using seagull fabric I just happen to have, or some nautical fabric--I guess it will come down to how much of the fabric I have. It would be nice to have it finished so that I can set it in the middle of the steps for him to see when he comes in the door. We'll see.
In other news . . . if you are looking for a fast project to celebrate the 4th of July, Aury has offered us up this sweet Quaker freebie. It coordinates with her offering for last year. I may end up stitching this next weekend--it would be pretty with a simple red white and blue homespun backing. If I ever get that shelf I bought done, I think it would be nice to stitch both of the hearts and hang them together from the pegs with some of my patriotic goodies displayed on top. Would anyone like to join me in a patriotic SAL next weekend?
