Help Help!!

First let me say that I am super excited to be starting this weekend. I have lots of stuff set out and organized and I plan on doing alot of sewing this weekend provided that my friend doesn't keep me occupied with text messages.

Moneik I did get your email last week and may have to take you up on the offer but I am going to try to get things put together before I leave. I already have a list of the things that need to get done and then a note for what to do with things that I don't get finished. Mom will mail the things that I don't get together after I leave if need be.

OKAY so here is where I need my quilting blog friends help. I have a friend (yes its a boy.. smiles) he is an absolute sweetheart. As with everything else our friendship just came along in a really hectic time for me trying to study for my military training and preparing to depoly but he seems to not be bothered by any of this. I wanted to write and tell everyone before what a great guy he was but didn't want to jinxs things. As far as I know he has not ventured to find my blog online even though he knows that I have one. He knows all about my meows, and my obsession with quilting and crafting and HE LIKES IT. Brownie points for him right?

Heres the delimma... I'm still getting ready to leave for deployment. He is bound and determined to make me understand that he will be here when I get back waiting so that we can continue to get to know each other. I would really love to give him something before I go that lets him know that I care but yet at the same time isn't TOO serious. Things (including relationships) always happen fast in the military and just don't want to screw this one up.

Right now I already have fabric to make him a pillowcase and there is a story behind that too. He loves to watch cartoons with his nephew and I thought that it would be a neat idea to make them matching cartoon pillowcases so that they could have their saturday morning pillows together. Mom suggested that I either embroider or write with my ident-a-pen something on the inside of the cuff of his pillowcase so I was going to do that. I would really like to do something more does anyone have ANY ideas? I have talked to Jen about him and with out going into too many details she could tell you that he is an absolute sweetheart who would if he could give me the world. Thanks in advance

Ok, Holy Crap!! I was talking to Moneik today about FF because I had to tell SOMEONE...and I said to her, I would not be shocked if things happened and FAST. To see YOU write that, that is just tooooooo awesome. =)

giggle...does he know his nick name?

Moneik said...

Oh I can't wait to hear more about him. Jen's got me intrigued. If you need my help just say the word. I'm sure you'll have a great time getting to know FF and we can't wait till there is more to tell. As far as what to write i don't have any ideas, but i did Paul's name on the first blanket I gave him and he loved it. something personalized always helps

Yeah, I am the wrong one to give advise about this type of thing. I made a pillowcase for the jerk and I still have it. I'm very excited for you though! Happy sewing!
