Lunch With Myra

Hello Saturday!
Today I met Myra at Saffron in Greensboro for lunch. This is my favorite Indian restaurant in town. I hope that Myra liked it since it was her first Indian food experience.
I am so fortunate to have met a friend like Myra through blogging. She is so amazing and talented and has such and eye for detail. We exchanges some holiday gifts and as always I was blown away.
If you read Myra's blog you know that her favorite motif is the cardinal. I happen to be fond of snowmen.

This is the gift bag she found.

Wow! Do you see that chart? Snowmen and cardinals. See the sweet stitched ornie with the fabulous rouched ribbon?

Look what she put on the back.
There was also one of her little ort containers and a needle minder in the same fabric that she used for the wonderful placemats that she had made me.

Do you see the theme here? The needle minder magnet is really strong so I pinned it to my jacket. It makes a wonderful holiday pin to dress up my outfit. I think I put some idea's in Myra's head and that is always a good thing.
Myra also included some wonderful Vera post its, a yummy candle and even some kitty treats for the bad boys.

Thank you dear friend.

After lunch we both went our separate ways to run some errands in town.
Happy day!

It was a happy fun day Chris and I loved the Indian food. Your sweet comments make me blush. :o) I am glad you like your goodies. I stopped at the grocery on the way home and guess what? Butter Chicken and Palak Paneer is on the menu for next week! Thank you so much for being such a great friend - I'll have to get a pic of my goodies tomorrow when the sun is shiny.
