I Love My Stitching Friends

You have no idea how much I love my stitching friends. 

Look what showed up in my mailbox today.
She sent me this awesome package for our first exchange this year.  She stitched Tis Red by La D DA from the JCS ornament issue.  She finished it into a cutie, cute pincushion with the most fabulous trim.
She also included lots of goodies.  Finishing fabric, fibers, springy note cards and journal, organizing bags, her favorite batting.  Thanks so much're a doll.

Earlier this week I received a surprise from Peg at Lightning Fingers...Not
She had a birthday giveaway.  She sent me an email that I didn't win the giveaway but she took notice of my comment about having always wanted a scissor frog.  She sent one to me just because.  Wasn't that the nicest thing.  I so appreciate your thoughtfulness Peg.  The scissor frog is perched nicely on my stitching table holding my antique scissors.

I am on Spring Break this week.  The weather here has been calm but cold.  Tomorrow is supposed to hit almost seventy.  I can't wait.  Seems like the week is going by way too fast.  Appointments and errands seem to occupy too much time.  I have managed some stitching.  I'm almost finished with my Home of a Needleworker by LHN.  Just a little more on the border at the top and off to the framer it goes.  I hope to finish that tonight.  Wish me Luck!

Thank you so much for stopping by and for your sweet comments.  They keep me motivated to do what I love, STITCH.

Keep on stitchin' on,

 Repeat after me.....

 I will NOT complain when the temperature is 98 degrees.

That is the way I'm feeling right now.  My body is craving some vitamin D, it needs to sweat, it needs some fresh air.  I am so ready for Spring. 

Our school's Spring Break is in one week.  Kind of early for a Spring Break don't ya think? 
I will make the most of it even though our temps will only be in the 50's. 
So... to pass the time until Spring officially arrives, I've been stitching Springy things.

Luck to You!

Peep was one of my market purchases.  I couldn't resist stitching it as soon as it arrived. 
I also couldn't resist a few of the new BBD patterns.  I think I might start on Breathe of Spring soon.

Thank you so much for stopping by to share in my love of stitching. 
Your encouragement and kind words mean the world to me.

Keep on stitchin' on,
