As though my 40th birthday a few weekends ago wasn't enough to make me feel old, now I have also celebrated my 20th wedding anniversary. I have now been married for half of my life.
Hubby and I went to Navy Bistro for dinner and sat out by the river in the glorious sunshine. We decided to skip dessert there and took ice cream home to the kids instead so we could all toast the occasion together.
For the last few days before my anniversary, I was weaving like a madman to finish a present for him. I wanted to try another blanket, so I wove three separate panels that were 21" x 36" and then seamed them. The seaming went a lot better this time thanks to an on line article I found. Then I sewed on a satin blanket binding again. I just love how the binding pulls it together and makes it look finished.
Hubby liked it but was worried it might be too nice to use and suggested we should hang it on the wall instead. I disabused him of that ridiculous notion and now it is living on the foot of our bed. I'm very happy with how it turned out.
I have other stuff to show you, but it will have to wait. My little sister is coming to visit me for the first time ever, leaving her 4 rugrats behind. There is much cleaning and laundry to finish before then. I took all of next week off so we can hang out together - we are going to have so much fun!!
