So last week, Catherine showed me the tutorial for a project she wanted to do. I loved it so much, I told her I'd make it too! I'm being vague here on purpose, because the not-quite-finished-yet project will be given to Melody for her <belated> birthday gift... once it has been gifted, I'll put up the link from where we found the tutorial, plus some pics.
Back to this past weekend of gloriousness. Catherine and I had our sew-date sipping Iced Tea and feeling the warm Santa Ana breezes come through her house - most of the windows and doors were open. The project turned out to be a new challenge that neither of us had tried before: Binding. Now for all my fellow blog cohorts, quilting/binding is pretty common, but I haven't yet ventured into the world of quilts.
To round out the weekend, my Boyfriend, David, built me a thread board to hang all my thread spools! I gave him this pic as an idea (Thread Board Tree):

|Man who knows how to use tools ~ yay!|
... CHECK IT OUT!
*** The construction of the board and nails is complete. Now, I'll be painting it a deep burnt orange someday soon to really finish it off. I love how detailed & personalized it is. Thanks honey!
P.S. My tasty refreshing beverage while I type is a glass of chilled water with a few cucumber slices and a splash of lemon juice. It's late, and I'll be heading to bed soon ~ it's a perfect "mocktail" as my nightcap.
