I was having a 'poor me' day. DH is away, the kids were demanding... and the new kitten, Willow, was staked out in my stitching chair! (Too cute to move!) She is not our cat, but, belongs to son and his fiance. We just 'cat-sit'.
I think I've killed one of the plants we received, my house looks like a disaster, and I have no motivation to straighten!
I went looking for something to read... I have lots of books, but, they are mostly crime stories, or the like, and I wanted something more 'light'. I found one by Nora Roberts -- but, wouldn't you know it? It's book two! I wonder where book one is?
So, I decided what better time to start on the 'thank you's'. I managed to get quite a few done before the mail was delivered. To my surprise... there was a package... from Nicki? (Nicki had been the moderator in the Redwork exchange, and my package had gone missing.... I finally received it last week, but, Nicki -- in her kind heartedness, also stitched me something!) I was thrilled!!!! This was just the thing to pick up my day! Check this out -- A Redwork tin -- all my own!!! And it even has an 'M' on it!! (I'll try to take a better picture)
And, then I open it up -- inside is such a fantastic finish, and a precious fob!! (the back of the fob has an 'M' too!)
Edit: I found the perfect little scissors that fit inside the tin!
As soon as I'm done posting, I'll be running upstairs for the perfect little pair of scissors for it! Nicki -- Thank you so much!!! I do truly adore it!
And, now a question.... I would like to plant a Forsythia in memory of my Mother-In-Law, as she always had these in bloom in the spring. Does anyone know when they should be planted? In the spring? If anyone has the 'green thumb' and can let me know, it would be appreciated.
Today is my golf league, so that will be nice to get back out and play. The weather is near perfect, and it should be fun.
I'm dividing my stitching time between two exchanges, and CCN Geranium House. Can't take pictures of the exchanges, but, here is a progress on Geranium House... yes, I changed the color of the house! :-)
I'm hoping to make this into a banner for the front door... I think it would look good there!
Off to stitch a little....
Thanks for reading, and all your comments! They are much appreciated!
Stitching on today: Shhhh -- exchanges!
