Valentine's Day Surprise

Hello Friends!
How has your week been? If you are in the Northeast I know that you are digging out again from another nasty storm. I hope that if you were affected by the storm that you were able to stay home safe and snug and maybe get some stitching done.
When I stopped by the Post Office yesterday to pick up the mail I was surprised to find a package from Faye at the Carolina Stitcher Blog. I have always admired Faye's stitching and finishing. If you have never visited her blog head over there now. Faye also provides finishing services, if you are finishing challenged like me.



Lovely sweet packaging.


What a sweet little pincushion.
Faye is all about the details.. The sweet pins...



The finishing details...



Thank you Faye for this little treasure! You made my day!
Here is another friend watching over me. One of the nurses at work thought that I needed a super hero so he is sitting on my printer.


I am getting very excited about the sampler guild meeting coming up this Saturday. I have added a link at the top of the sidebar of my blog. Hop on over there and look at what we are up to. All are welcome to join us for a class or a lecture. There are no dues.
Well, time to hit the road and get my day going. I am listening to The Goldfinch by Donna Tart on my commute. Is anyone else reading this?

Happy Thursday!

Faye does such beautiful work! I bought the Goldfinch, but I haven't started it yet. I have the version where I have to choose between stitching and reading.
