Good Morning Friends.
I hope that this last week before the holidays finds you all ready and able to slow down some to enjoy the holidays. The time seems to be going so fast. Last night was my night to have dinner with my friend Louise. Some of you may know her from her designs. Her company name is Cherished Stitches. I met Louise in EGA about 12 years ago when I moved to NC. Louise has a wonderful family and her daughter Robin is another amazing sampler stitcher. I am in between them in age and lucky to count them both as friends.
Robin has a wonderful blog called Threads of Memory. It show cases her amazing scrapbooking, stitching, love of travel and some naughty felines.
After work I headed over to Louise's house and we exchanged our gifts before going to eat.
Louise gave me some beautiful skeins of Gloriana silk. I need to find the perfect design for these.
Robin completely surprised me with one of her wonderful tags and this wonderful ornament. I was happy dancing all over Louise's kitchen. Luckily no one was filming it, otherwise it would probably going viral on YouTube as we speak. My other favorite holiday motif besides snowmen is holly so this is just one of my favorite designs and has been on my mind. Didn't she do a beautiful job? I am very emotional right now so of course these are making me cry too. So both the tag and the ornament are now part of my mantle display and both will be part of my holiday for many years to come. Thank you Robin.
Have a wonderful Tuesday.
