TGIF

Do you ever have those weeks where you are insanely busy but don't feel like you are getting anything accomplished? It must be spring fever!

I finished up stitching for the SBEBB House & Garden exchange, hopefully this weekend I can get it finished-finished and mailed off. And I received 2 RR pieces in the mail this week, one for the Hello Neighbour RR and Donna's piece for the Quaker Friendship RR.

Meanwhile I made a start on the first of 2 bookmarks that I am making for the teachers in the study group I have been attending since last September. These are from the book Tokens of Affection and there is a series of monthly bookmarks. I decided to rechart the names in place of the month. Here is a scan of my first one....its a design that isn't going to look like much until all the backstitching is in place. Yikes, the dreaded backstitching!
Have a great weekend!

To answer your first question...YES. All the time. That seems to be the pattern of my life. :-)

Wow, that is a lot of backstitching on that bookmark! But the end result will be really pretty.

What a great idea to stitch the name on the bookmark rather than the month. Great gifts.

You are so right - TGIF!!! Have a great weekend.

Your bookmark looks like it will be lovely when done, and such a joy to use. Good luck with finishing it with the backstitch. It adds so much to projects, but ugh it is such a pain to do.
