A lovely weekend
Me (excited) - I know what that is.
Paul - Did you buy something?
Me - No, but Lynne (my partner in the Christmas Angel swap) said she had a little gift to post me.
Me (reading the card) - She knows Gail Pan ... and she is friends with Rosalie Quinlan!
Me - Look at the pretty sewing kit ... and the cross stitched 'W' ... (opening the sewing kit) and tiny little embroidery scissors!
Paul and Charlie - laughing at me as my voice gets higher and higher.
Me - And there's a Gail Pan pattern ... and a Christmas pattern ... and look at the pretty fabric!
Paul and Charlie - laughing at the tear in my eye.
Me - And there's more, look at the Rosalie Quinlan patterns (happy squeal!)
Yes, I was pretty happy, thank you so much Lynne for my lovely, lovely gift.
Saturday afternoon we had our friends wedding and I got the cross stitch framed just in time. It was a wedding filled with joy and happiness although I did forget to bring my camera! Sunday morning was church followed by a relaxing afternoon at home. I am working on the back of my crochet-a-long cushion, using the tutorial here by the lovely Sandra at Cherry Heart. Thank you Sandra for such a great tutorial, it is perfect for what I needed, Wendy xx
