Last week our Wednesday LNS Stitching Group decided that we would have a special fun 'Stitch-In' day, on a different day, so that we could stitch to our heart's content, from morning til when the shop closed! Imagine.....just stitching and eating yummy treats all day long! What sheer joy! We hope to re-create our special all day long 'Stitch-In' again in a few months.
I worked on 'Pure and Pleasant', a Primitive Betty's design. It seems like my fingers don't stitch as fast as I would like sometimes:) My mind is swirling with ideas of how I would like to finish it as a pincushion. Will show finishing later.....
I am sure that you have probably seen this cute Country Cottage 'March Cottage' design. Here is my stitching start. I love doing monthly or seasonal designs and changing them around in the house for a new and cheerier look.
On Saturday, we had a Baby Shower for our son and daughter-in-law, who are expecting our second granddaughter, in late May, but are moving next week to Texas. On Friday night, Miss Ella was helping us wrap up the baby gifts..... trying outfits on her dollies.
Even Ernie had to try on Ella's favorite baby outfit too!
Of course, Miss Ella insisted on modeling the outfit on herself too!
Our daughter-in-law loves little green turtles, and didn't want anything frilly pink, so we came up with a cute "Baby Turtle" theme.
Notice the Daddy, Baby and Mommy Turtles....too cute!
For now, dear friends, time is fleeting, and I must get on to doing some other things today, but wanted so much to let you know that I am thinking about you always. It is a blessing that our lives connect one to another, through the threads that join us, creating a tapestry that wraps us all together, doing what we love so much........
'Crossing in Stitches and Friendship'!
