My first Floss Ring Tag!

Woop! I did it! With the help of my friend Guðbjörg who held my hand and comforted me while I fought my way through this! LOL!
Actually, I was going to whip stitch the two pieces together, but this fabric is NOT good for that because of the low count. I tried, but stopped after a few stitches and decided to find another way. I am quite happy with the result and I must say I love my new tool! I decided that this first Floss Ring Tag would be a gift for my friend Tracy, because thanks to her I have the pliers and the eyelets! So thank you again Tracy!

Fabric: 20ct Lilac Tula (stitched two over one)

I decided to change the colors of this pattern to fulfill Tracy’s purple passion! Hope you like it honey!

I spent today putting up bookshelves in my daughters bedroom. Finally! My dad came over and drilled the holes in the walls for the shelves and then me and my mom cleaned and packed down old clothes that my girls have grown out of. Then put books in the shelves and did some re-arranging in the bedroom. My bedroom is now a mess because of it, but hey, it will be fine in a couple of days. I need to go to IKEA to be able to continue. There are plenty of more clothes to be packed and then I am going to donate most of it to the Red Cross or some other charity.
