This is what I should not have been working on this weekend!

Julie Patterson's "Eye Spy"

Tat-ilicious size 60 "Young Hearts"

This weekend, I should have been studying for my Italian and Microbiology test that is tomorrow.
However, instead, I found myself stuck at Chris's apartment because his mom was having some sort of paranoid anxiety/ major depressive episode.  Of course, I find it EXTREMELY difficult and even very very frustrating to try to study with any distractions.  So, I saved myself the headache and just worked on this bookmark.  I really like it.  I didn't get one of the rings good and closed at the end.  The thread had gotten wet, so I knew that if I pulled on it that the thread would break, which would mean more stress on me.  I was stressed out enough by not being able to study so I left it as it was. 
I plan to take a needle and tidy up the tassel (which is my first attempt at a tassle!) and I will make the open ring look more presentable then.  It could also use some blocking. 
Livi wants to give this bookmark to her teacher.  I told her that was fine by me. :o)

I found this in my room the other day.  I made it a few months ago for Val, but right before I went to send it, I lost it.  Now, that I have found it, I may just have to pop it in the mail. :o)

Now, I must study.  I will hold my screaming panic inside for now.  But later, if you hear a scream... it may be me.  I might need a good scream before I am able to actually sit down and concentrate.  
It has just been one of those kinds of weekends!
