Today, however, we get to go to the doctor. We have the same primary care doc and this is just our 3 month check up. Nothing much ever changes for me, but for Jim, there may be blood work, adjustment of medicines, etc.
Nothing planned for our weekend, so we will see what comes up! Enjoy whatever is on your agenda.
Hint for today:
Yarn Embroidered Baskets
Head to your local thrift store for some great options for $1 a piece.
Yarn (variegated yarn, but any color will work)
If you want, you can also double up your yarn for a thicker embroidered look, like I did for my rectangular basket.
1. Cut a length of yarn, thread your needle, and tie a knot on the end. Determine where you want to start embroidering on your basket. For this circular basket I started in the middle by inserting my needle through one of the spaces and pulling the yarn through.
2. Start embroidering whatever pattern you want on your basket. For this one I created a starburst design by making a long stitch and a slightly shorter stitch next to each other and then moving over a "rung" in the basket for the next two stitches.
3. Once you have gone all around the basket, tie off your yarn and trim any excess.
Easy, quick gifts!
