Unfortunately we're not able to do anything fun today to celebrate because of work and school but we're planning on having a nice evening out this weekend. We're really not doing presents but Erich did bring me a dozen white roses at work this afternoon and we allowed ourselves each a little extra fun money earlier in the month. I've still got about half of mine but the rest was spent at one of the HAED sales. I think Erich's is all gone, probably on tools. Oh well, we enjoyed splurging and that's what matters:)
I do have pics to share from the Dragon Dreams Exchange I participated in recently. The exchange rules were to stitch and finish any small Dragon Dreams design. I chose Time Well Spent, a freebie, and finished it as a bellpull. I used a sky blue hand-dyed fabric (28ct) and stitched over 2. I made my own cord out of DMC Color Variations and found the butterfly charm in my stash. Sorry if the photo's a little blurry, didn't realize that until after the piece was in the mail to Erica.
I received a piece from Ruth. She stitched Moon Dragon as a bellpull and added the prettiest bookmark to the package:) Thanks Ruth!
Not much else going on today- it's hot (87 with a ton of humidity) and I had to come back to work so I haven't done a whole lot except a bit of cleaning inside and some stitching. I should have a few stitching pics soon though.
