Thanks to a weekend of inactivity, the bottom border is now done.
What I should now be doing is going back to the top and stitching the sentiment around the couple but.....
...what I did instead was add two hearts to my bookmark.
I was inspired to work on the bookmark after I received this box of books in the mail from Son in Michigan. He loved these books and wanted me to read them so he had them sent from a local bookshop in Detroit.
Since son is the connoisseur of cool I decided to take a look at the online presence of the shop and I wan't disappointed. Detroit is having quite the renaissance so this is exactly what I expected.
It's the 27th Letter Books shop and it looks like a good place to lose an afternoon. I miss having a good bookshop nearby. I used to spend hours and lots of money in Borders when it existed.
Speaking of books, today at 2:00 we are going to the groundbreaking of the new library which when it is done will look like this. It is going to be right on the boardwalk next to the ice cream shop. I have no idea how they are going to squeeze all that in that little space but it promises to be interesting to watch.
