Last week on Instagram, the hashtag #weddingringwednesday made the rounds. I decided to play along. This is my wedding ring. The center diamond is small, about a fifth of a carat I think. When I got engaged, everyone around me seemed to be getting larger diamonds set on tall prongs. I wanted a smaller diamond. Years down the road I wanted something more substantial. But not a different diamond--by then I was very sentimentally attached to this one. So we added the ring guard. While pretty, those four diamonds are not nearly as sparkly as my lovely original diamond. I still love it. And December 8th will be 41 years since Mark put that engagement ring on my finger. So there are actually times when size doesn't matter.

When Mark and I went over to drop off Batman, Aaron and the kids were playing a game called Fibber. I'm not sure how it's played but they all had funny glasses and increasingly larger noses.
Pat Sloan (so naturally, being excited that Pat Sloan liked something I made, I turned around and put it on Instagram), linking back to the Selvage Blog, where, unbeknownst to me, my selvage Christmas tree tutorial was posted (with all the proper links back to me, so that was nice, but it would have been fun to know about it).

This mug and ginormous button arrived the other day. The button is so large that there is actually a cardboard easel type thing on the back so you can put it on a shelf.
Carla is the winner of a copy of the magazine. I was so surprised that out of 230-some comments, the winner would be my partner in the X and + block swap, but that's who the Random Number Generator chose. So who am I to argue?
A little technology before bedtime.
And yesterday morning I was packaging a little fat quarter to send to my friend, Doris. Where did this thread come from on my packing tape?? I tried to pull it off, and then decided Doris would find the humor in having thread stuck to the tape so I just left it alone.
