At 11 o'clock Monday night I got a bee in my bonnet that I was going to make my mom an embroidered Halloween card. I did a quick sketch, drew lines where I wanted the thread to be and marked where I should poke holes through my paper. By 11:45 I was hammering a gazillion holes. Luckily George is a night owl like myself, although I think Sunshine (our cat) was annoyed. I stayed up until one sewing that night and woke up early the next morning and started up again.
I had a big printmaking project due on Wednesday but I just couldn't stop myself. And to make it worse I kept coming up with more ideas to make it harder. Originally I was going to glue matching paper to the back, but then I realized I could sew a card to the back - and while I was at it, why not sew a "Happy Halloween" in there? Aaaargh! Sometimes I drive myself crazy! But my mom always sends the best Halloween cards and I wanted her to enjoy opening a super fun card too. I put it in the mail yesterday so hopefully she will get it today or tomorrow. Happy Halloween everyone!
