Great Saturday, a new friend & a gift

Yesterday was a really great day. I had two friends over to stitch.... Nicole, who has been coming about once a month and as always, it was great to see her. We have so much in common & I'm not really sure who is more "addictied" to stitching/stash, me or her! It's always wonderful to spend the day with Nicole! And recently I "met" Faye via email and she came yesterday too. We had a great time & I think she fits into the "addicted" category right along with the rest of us!
:-) She brought me a lovely stitched gift - here are pics of the front & back.

Plum Street Samplers "In God We Trust"

Isn't it great & wasn't that so very thoughtful of her? It's finished so nicely too, thank you again Faye! I hope she will be able to visit more as well.

As far as stitching, I started the ornament for Becky SC, the last one in the 08/09 Monthly Ornament Exchange. I didn't finish it as I put it down last night to stitch in the Just Nan Bluebird Box. It's coming along nicely & I hope to get it finished soon!

Thanks to Nicole, I'm going to pull out yet another chart by Country Cottage to start next! lol Yes, I have to blame it on someone. If you haven't browsed Nicole's Flickr albums, you must. OMG, what a treat. I've met a lot of really fast stitcher's over the years, but I don't think I've ever seen anyone with albums so full of pics. It's just amazing. I could sit for hours and go through blogs & albums, adding to my "wish" list on almost every single one, but then I wouldn't have any time to stitch these things on my very long & ever growing list!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I'm headed out to my parents for awhile and then home to stitch. Thanks for stopping by & Happy Stitching!

I had the best day ever Saturday with you and Nicole! Thanks so much for letting me (us) stop by. As you mentioned, I am totally addicted to stitching! But, it keeps me out of trouble! (KINDA); I am enjoying going through my new stash items!

Nicole is definitely an inspiration to us slow stitchers...to get stitching and finish those projects! Love the Bluebird Box, that will be amazing! Great exchange...
