long, long time ago. In a craft far, far away…
So, you may remember this cross-stitch. Well, I finally have the date to add it in. So the gift is almost complete. After that I just have to worry about framing it! Eek. I’m planning on framing it myself. That will be a first. I'm not sure how it's going to work. I chose this particular craft so that I could try to frame it with a standard 8.5 x 11 frame. That's the size of the picture. But I'm worried that I'm not going to do the framing right. Maybe I should read up on that on the internet...

But let’s step back a second, I have another problem.

roblem? What's problem? How could I have a problem with adding in a few words?
Well, It’s a font problem. After many font trials, I chose one that I partially made myself. Well, I copied it. The capital letters come from a book where I saw the ‘A’ and fell in love with the way it looked. (The book was Alex and the Ironic Gentleman.) But since that time I’ve returned it to the library. And now, happy couple are getting married in September. If it was August, I’d be golden, but I don’t know how to do the ‘S’ in that font! Eek. It’s not a very intuitive font, so I don’t know what I should make it look like.

Either way, it’s going to be a mad few days of crafting and framing. I’m going to try and get my latest afghan done too. I made it sort of on a lark, but I have a different friend who lives in the same town who is having a baby in December. These friends are common friends and thus I’m thinking I can mail them at the same time to the same person, to be divided between them. So, I will need to get that done for Friday too to get it out on time. Yikes!

Wish me luck. And fast crafting.
