is this too showy?
I was packing.  I swear, I was packing.  But I had to lint-roller darkwolfie's green wool tunic, because it was in Big Bertha without any protection and got sawdust on it.  And I got to looking at it, and it just needed something.  So I ran a line of stem stitch around the neckline in black, and well, that was just a little boring.  The trim on the sleeves is black and white, so I wrapped the black stem stitch with white, and holy CRAP it looks hot.  No, it looks hott.  Hawt, even.

I took it downstairs to show darkwolfie, and he loved it, even as he laughed at me because I couldn't leave it alone.  And then he said something that left me reeling.

Me:  I want to do the cuffs, too, but I can do those later.

Him:  No, don't do the cuffs.  It'll be too showy.

Me:  Too showy?  Are you serious?  Honey, you're a Viking.  You're all about bling.  You go to other countries to steal their bling.

(I'm going to do the cuffs later, you totally know I am.)

(He has no idea the tunic I have planned...  He ain't seen showy yet.)

i feel: busy busy
i hear: Dropkick Murphys - You're A Rebel

Yes. But I'm a nut with a well-dressed husband. (And you know the stupid thing? He probably won't even wear that tunic at Pennsic.)

"Honey, you're a Viking. You're all about bling. You go to other countries to steal their bling."
