Road Trip

Happy Saturday stitching friends!

I am happy to have made it to the weekend. This morning I met Myra(Gr8dame's Place Blog) for a road trip down to Manning, SC for the stitch in at the French Hens. This is a group that meets every other month or so for stitching and lunch. It is a 3 hour drive from Asheboro. It is pretty far to go by yourself but with Myra along the drive was no problem.

This is the sign headed into Manning. I had to stop on my way out of town because it made me smile.

There was a group of about 17 for lunch and stitching. It was wonderful to put faces to the name's of some of the stitchers in the Blogosphere.

Here is a pic of Myra and me.

She made me this wonderful fabric basket. Look at the fabric! there is a squirrel in that arch, peacocks, berry baskets and a house. All are great sampler motifs.

Look what was in the bag! one of Myra's beautiful bird pincushions, a sweet distressed prim papermache box and a pack of needles. I am a lucky girl! Myra is so talented and has such an eye for detail.

The charm and those prim needles! wow!
Myra and I made it back to Asheboro after a fun day with hopes to have the chance to go again.
I am beat but happy!
Have a peaceful evening.

I love that basket. So great to see - I have that fabric and have been wondering what fun things to do. Now I am definitely inspired.

Have a great Sunday and Happy Stitching.
