I like it!

We had an all day light rain for a change, and I got a haircut that I absolutely hate.   Bud has been enjoying the warm weather and it should continue though the weekend.
So what do you think?  Damn good looking I think, for only 3" wide and making it up as I went along.  It's only finger pressed right now and if it will hang on its own I would like the edges hemstitched.  But I'm also thinking that a long very thin hornbook style mount would be nice with a decorative top.
I'll show a few close-ups of the stitching when it's pressed and finished IF ..  the computer cooperates.  I've been getting the blue screen after downloading Windows updates.
I was looking through the papers that came with the new car and saw this - Mom would be proud!
Browsed birthday cards for a friend and saw one that hit my giggle button.  Isn't it embarrassing when you have a laughing fit in the card aisle?

Hope your week is going well.
Thanks for visiting.

Your long and narrow sampler turned out fabulous, Marly. Hope your friend enjoys the birthday card; I thought it was funny as well.

LOL -cute card. That lovely creation would be impressive on a hornbook. Now we
know why you were led around in circles on the car.... you were meant to have the
Polish product... Hope it works out to your satisfaction. Enjoy...

What a perfect card, very funny. I do love that long narrow design and it would be perfect on that long piece of wood!

I like your sampler too!!!! Sorry you hate your haircut though. I always go into a place with high hopes of coming out stunning. I've learned to lower my expectations.
Thanks for sharing the card laugh. That's a good one :D
