It's Monday and my bathrooms are clean.  Everything is right in my world.
I worked hard on those drawstrings for the Vierlande Winders' Keeper and I got them all done!!!  They aren't perfect, one is pretty close and the rest have a slight bobble in them but I don't think it is noticeable.  So what's next?

The bobble on the end that joins two drawstrings together.  I haven't done this before.  I started on it last night and it is a learning experience.  Next one will be way better because I won't pull it so tightly and I'll make it slightly lower on the drawstring. This one is not quite done.
 I have been avoiding the edging.  Actually I have been trying to figure out where in my house I can do this as it involves tables and chairs and  an alligator clip as well as my new tool.  I'm thinking the back porch might work.
I finished attaching the lid to the needlebook.

I must have a slightly obsessive personality.  I want to keep working on that bookmark just to see how it develops.  I can't seen to put it down.

Dylan and I will probably do the Rush Hour game.  He wanted to go through all the cards starting at the Beginner Level through Intermediate and on to Advanced.  He is on Intermediate right now.  It involves critical thinking and he is very smart.  We are also starting a new set of readers.  We only have 4 more sessions after today.  The year has gone so fast.  Next week we celebrate his tenth birthday.

  1. That bobble looks great - it's always fun to learn a new technique isn't it. Hope your time with Dylan went as planned
