Made it to Saturday!

Good Morning Friends!
I hope that everyone had a great week!
My morning started with a quick trip down the road to meet up with Myra(Gr8dame's Place Blog).

Look what she brought me! One of her fabulous wallets and some of the Miracle Hand Lotion. Her treat came with beautiful printed tags she made up. She pays such attention to detail.
After a little breakfast we headed over to Lynne's in Siler City.

WOW!!! I bought some linen after Myra put the bug in my ear about hand dying it. When I get around to doing that you can be sure that I will post info about my adventures here! I also bought some cording to add to my finishing kit and some small pieces if fabric for backing ornaments.
Then it was a stop at a local orchard where we picked up some fresh corn! Yum! I am looking forward to dinner.
It was a great short visit. We both went on our way with plans to go down to the next Saturday stitch-in in S.C.

Since we were going to the orchard, I made this small for Myra. The freebie is from Le Chalet des Perelles blog. I am going to stitch up one for my Mom. She loves cherries! And maybe one for my giveaway. What do you think? I have been using the leftover floss from Strawberry Garden. The colors are perfect!

Well, I am going to vacuum and do some stitching. Bath & Body works has a free giveaway today so I am going to run out to get that and  get some gas.
Have a wonderful Saturday!

How lovely that you got to meet up with Myra - I'm an avid follower of her blog. The small ornie you made for her is adorable.

It was wonderful getting together with you again Chris! I just love my little ornament - I can't stop admiring it. :o) I'm saving my corn for Sunday supper - it is all cleaned and ready to go.
