Stitching Friends are Special

This past year has really been fabulous - I have enjoyed getting to know so many stitchers out there. Your friendship and your encouraging words are always so appreciated.

Another friend honored me with a gift today - look at the beautiful bag that Karen stitched for me! This is the front side; the backside includes Karen initials and "06" to mark the year. The bag is beautifully lined with coordinating fabric; in the bag were the lovely gifties you see pictured. I am touched by Karen's kindness - thank you!



I have another picture to share with you - I had received Myrna's name for the Pinkeep exchange on the US Exchange Board. She received the pinkeep yesterday. As I told Myrna, I was in the mood for something kind of whimsical, therefore the wild colors. I think it turned out pretty cool and I think Myrna likes it!



Hope you are all having a good week. Is it Friday yet?

Lovely Cathy, truly lovely! The twisted ribbon is genius! I love it!
And isn't it special to receive something so nice so unexpectedly from a friend. Special people attract special friends ~ you're remarkably lucky in both areas!!
