Super Saturday!!!

First, before I talk about my day, I want to thank Merumo for this lovely Huswife she made & sent me! I won one of her "Second Chance" drawings for donating money for the victims in Japan. Isn't this just lovely? I adore it & thank you to sweet Merumo for such a lovely gift!

And here it is open with one of my favorite pair of scissors, some floss I'm currently using and a needle. Isn't this handy - and so very pretty!?


While perusing Merumo's lovely blog, I saw her talking about a book that I ended up NEEDING - and the pattern for the lovely Housewife/Huswife is in it. How neat is that?! I'll have to give it a try one of these days. The book is shown below - Remembering Adelia - with a couple of other books I had to add to my massive stash. The Blackbird Book has a gorgeous xs sampler and beautiful monograms in it as well. You can see pics of those by clicking here.....



Today Nicole came for a visit & we went to Sumter to Five Guys for lunch (YUM!) and to Michael's to spend a few $$. They share a parking lot - who can resist either one? ;-) Afterwards, we can back & stitched for a few hours before she had to head home. It was a fun day & I enjoyed it very much. Nicole is on quite a roll with several large & beautiful samplers - she's making me feel guilty since I haven't stitched hardly at all since my "Heaven Doth Ask" sampler. I started a little project while she was here & it's almost finished - I think I have a dozen or so stitches to put it. I hope to do the finishing on it tomorrow & then I'll share a picture of it - and maybe of another that I stitched on March 30th. :-) Before I get to that tomorrow, I'm going to my brother's house to see my new niece!! She is finally home after spending her first 3 weeks in the hospital. My mom says she's beautiful and I can't wait to see her!! :-)

Thanks for stopping by & have a wonderful weekend!!

Happy stitching!

The needlecase is wonderful. I received one from her also and just love it. I'll have to look for that book because I think they would be nice to make for friends.
