I am still thinking about everything that happened recently. I did manage to sort things through enough to write an email to Musicman that was not an epic novel. He kinda prefers I just boil it all down to specifics for him. It's not that he isn't interested in understanding things, he's just more interested in the part about what he needs to do. I did remember to tell him this time that I sent it, he has read it, but he hasn't said anything about it. That's not a surprise.
I needed to not think about it today. If I dwell too much I will just start to spiral again and I don't want that. I have some other stuff going on that if it works out, could help sway the situation for the better anyway. I will know more about it all tomorrow, hopefully. Since there was nothing I could do today about it I took some inspiration from all the lovely ladies out here.
It may just be my choice of reading, but it seems like floggers have been prominent lately. I had a lovely piece of suede that has been begging to become a flogger. I always enjoy a good DIY project, so I spent some time this afternoon making one.
I started with an 18 x 20 rectangle. I cut strips varying in width from 1/4" to 2/3", I left about a 6" solid band across the top. Once all the strips were cut, I folded the band over and then rolled it tightly. I was going to then use some leather cording to wrap and finish the top for a handle. Currently I have an elastic hair band on it holding the roll closed. I think the leather cording may make the handle too thick. Any suggestions?
The hair band holds it well enough to be used, so Musicman can try it on for size while I think of a more permamnent way to finish it. Of course I did try it out a bit to make sure it was secure. It has an interesting soft sting to it. I can think of quite a few places he could try it on. I will leave the specifics of those places to your imagination.
I don't think it is going to be the quietest of implements so I'm not sure when we will get to try it.
I left it on his pillow under the comforter for him to find when he goes to bed tonight. He may not dream about it, but I probably will. Sweet dreams.
