After going large, with my spur of the moment quilt making session for Siblings Together on Saturday, I thought I better cross something off my To Do List pronto, as it's a very looooooooooooong one for April.
So yesterday, having spent a couple of evenings trying and failing at embroidering the name of my Name Tag swap partner for FQ Retreat, I finally cracked it, (if a 7 year old can read it without a problem, then I'm happy).
All well and good, but I can't show you the name anyway until it has been received later in the month!
I binned off the idea with all the black; I was thinking 'Pearly Kings & Queens' but it just looked miserable, so I went with what makes me happy... Melody Miller!
I was going to say 'here's what my partner will be sporting on June 2nd/3rd', but then I thought that was a bit presumptuous, as it may well get accidentally left at home in the excitement!
I went with the lanyard rather than a badge, (because I have a tendency to over-think things, a lot!), and I didn't want my partner's top to be dragged to her knees under the weight of it, (oops, sorry John, not you then!); and I love lanyards, they remind me of cool back-stage passes (and work, hmmm).
OK, I'll shush now, can you tell I'm a bit nervous!?
