I was so excited and happy all day. You see, I had never met another stitching friend! I really wanted to stitch something for Chris, but oh my! The time. With only hours to start and complete a gift, whatever should I do? Well, I went with what I have become rather good at this year. Can you guess? Yes, a bookmark.
Here we are at our home.
Sweet Chris brought me these. Lovely red geraniums.
Chris and I went to dinner at one of our favorite burger and custard restaurants. Chris had never had frozen custard! We both had Red Raspberry. She liked it very much. :) Being the nice person that she is, she even bought custard to take home for the family. What a thoughtful, kind thing to do.
I showed Chris our downtown village area and the Falls that are responsible for our village name. Chris had to get up early. I mean really early (way before the sun) for an early flight the next morning. I am so very glad that we got to meet. What a great experience. Thank you Chris.
I received a very wonderful package all the way from Australia! Our friend Noni sent me lovely, pink fabrics.
Hooray! Thank you so much Noni. I now need only 9, yes, 9 more pink fabrics. I am so very close to beginning work on this pink charm quilt. Soon. Very soon. I am busy making gifts for friends first.
EDIT: I have been to JoAnn. I bought the last 9 pink fabrics!! I need ZERO more pink fabrics! Hip hip hooray!
Stitching and praying,
