So, I finished "Jenny Bean" at long last, and she is in the process of being stretched and then framed. I will show my finished piece soon! Here is some more progress on "My Lovely Stitching Tools" (Gift of Stitching Mystery Sampler).
I also made some progress on one of my WIP's, "Gobble" by Plum Street Samplers.
Amidst all of the busyness of enjoying my giveaway last week, I also received some sweet little gifts from two stitching friends.
One afternoon, my husband came home from work, carrying the mail, and held up a little package from my new stitching friend, June! It contained a lovely thank you card, (for some charts that I recently sent to her), a wonderful Country Vintage 2012 Bookmark Calendar, and two beautiful skeins of Dragon Floss. The most special part of these lovely threads are their names: "Blessings""Generosity". I can tell you, that these sweet gifts touched my heart beyond measure! Thank you, dear June, for your thoughtfulness!
On the same day that June's lovely gifts arrived, my long-time friend, and stitching companion, Ellen came for lunch and an afternoon of stitching. She had recently returned from a trip to Japan with her husband, daughter and son-in-law. She brought me the book that she read on her trip because she knows that I love Catherine Cookson's novels too, and the cutest little bag I have ever seen.
Wherever you are, I hope that this finds you well and warm, and that this week is filled with blessings that will lighten your spirit, lift the loads that you must carry and bless you and your loved ones, in whatever needs you may have in your hearts and homes. You are very special to me and I am so thankful for the "threads" that join us all together!
Crossing in Stitches & Blessings With You!
