I stitched on Sweet Heart of Mine because I wanted to get the heart done and see how it turned out. Ta-Dah!
Now I want to finish the front entirely.
I should go back to my mermaid. I finished the backstitching on the fish. The next step is scary. Putting on the pearl purl (?) on the mermaid's waist. It's probably not that big a deal but I haven't worked with this stuff before. There are special instructions on setting up a box to cut it in, cutting it and attaching it. I just need to work through each step.
While I was at the class Sunday, people were talking about a class with the Western Reserve Sampler Guild. It's a class that I really want to take and I was hoping it would be taught at Celebrations. When I found it wasn't being taught there, I decided not to go to Celebrations this year. So I found out some more information and sent off the registration yesterday. I have no idea how I'm going to get to the class. It's about 5 hours away if I drive. I checked flights. I could fly there and rent a car. I don't have to worry about it right now as the class isn't until late August. Wouldn't it be nice to ride with someone? That's it, I need a chauffeur and a stretch limo.
I had a good meeting with Dylan yesterday. He got 5 rows done on the coaster. We have two more weeks to get it done. We are celebrating his birthday next week. I got him a couple of books (Kids' Silliest Jokes, Weird But True). I thought he would enjoy reading them and they aren't too hard. I think I'll take cupcakes and we'll make the icing for them.
Barnes & Noble has the prettiest bag. Several people had them at class. They aren't very expensive either. So, yes, I had to get one too.
