Good Friday Morning! I am sitting here in the spare room, sipping my homemade pumpkin chai coconut latte, and enjoying the teeny tiny peek of sun battling it's way through the clouds...we are expecting a flutter of flurries today here in my corner of Ontario...it'll be pretty if it does.
So...how has your week been? Any exciting plans for the weekend? or will you be just nesting like me?
Who knew they could write an entire book about the mind of a man....sometimes I feel like I can sum them up in one sentance or less...and yet this book proved me wrong. So... in hopes of better understanding my husband I began to read this intelligent book.
And MAN!! Men are just as complicated as we are....!!
I highly recommend this book, if you are a wife or partner, or a mom to a boy, or even a sister...it's a great read. It is quite technical and delves into the mind of a man and how it works...or in our opinion 'doesn't work' :) There is also a womans version I may get for my husband to read...but he already knows how complicated we are so there is NO surprise :)
Is it just me? I have a nasty habit of returning library books with my bookmarks still in them. Which is great surprise for the new borrower but not for me who is always looking for a bookmark. I am ashamed to say but I have even used the adhesive cover strip from a panty liner in a pinch!! Am I the only one??
What is the strangest item you have used as a bookmark in a pinch?
So...from time to time I make some quick fabric bookmarks out of scraps of fabric I like. They are never the same shape and size, they are not measured and never straight...unless I am making them to give.
These two are for my daughter and I but there is a bit of an assembly line of bookmarks on my sewing table right now. They multiply quite quickly!
I use two pieces of fabric of my choice and a layer of iron on stiff interfacing sandwiched inbetween however you may use just one layer of fabric and a lovely cardstock. Stitch and use! You can even punch a hole in the top end if you like and tie on a pretty ribbon or tassle or a string of beads...get creative!
Here is my finished piece for my sister in law, it's in the mail along with some other goodies for her late november birthday...
Our pup Moose always finds the craziest places to fall asleep...here he is sleeping on my daughter who is reading on her tummy on the living room floor. So cute!
Wishing you all a lovely weekend!
