Adriana ....My Mom

Last week I received an E-mail from Thea of Victoria Sampler.
She had heard from Ann of Knowledge and Needles who nominated my Mother as stitcher of the week on Thea's news letter. Thea is the owner of this store and has started to post a weekly stitcher. She has been in touch with me a few times and I shared some photo's with her which she posted.
This is the link for the story about my Mother. Please have a look at this lovely website and blog.

Thea did a nice job of telling this story. Thank you Thea my mother is thrilled.

I have to say thank you to Kathy A. She stopped by today and brought me a Birthday gift.
This is so neat. It is a "needle roll kit " . Isn't that amazing. Here we are talking about this site and low and behold Kathy brings me a gift designed by "The Victoria Sampler." It is the August birthstone and birth flower chart. I love it.
Thank you so much Kathy.

I also want to thank all the well wishers for my Birthday. What a lovely gift to know I have so many on line stitching friends. This has been a great year and I treasure all of you as good friends!!!

This weekend I managed a bit of work on Bling the Moonlight Guardian.
It's coming along. Dani has hers finished and it is gorgeous .

I also started a little piece that will have a jungle theme for my bathroom. The little charts are from a Cross stitch crazy magazine Sept 2007.
I needed a small stitch to work on other than pumpkins....still working on those. lol.

Have a great day and stitch with happy fingers!

Happy Belated Birthday Beatrice! I had my 59th Birthday on August 8. I just finished reading the report about your mother and what an inspiration she is to us "younger gals!" Wow, I hope I look that good at 92.

Hi Beatrice,

What a lovely story about your
Mum. She truly is a remarkable
lady, and an inspiration to all
of us. Hope she continues to
stitch and craft for many, many
years to come.

You received a lovely gift from
Kathy for your birthday. Have
you ever made a needle roll
before?? It's perfect that this
one celebrates your birth months
stone and flower.

Bling's looking great!! You're
making great progress with her.
You really don't have all that
much left to do on her.

Your little hand towel looks
great with the jungle cat on it.
It looks quite tiny in the

So, are you as sick of rain
and cool temperatures as I am??
It's time we had a little hot
weather and sunshine. I'm
thinking of starting a petition!
Think the Weatherman will cave
in to our demands???

I did get the e-mail with the article about your Mom I thought it was well done... and soooo cool!

Bling is looking great ... she'll be done in no time to keep mine company!

What a lovely gift from Kathy! Would you belive I've had the March one in my stash for YEARS? Maybe this is the year to pull it out????

See you Saturday!

Nancy said...

Congratulations to your Mom, that is great. I love your bling and the towel is starting out so well. The gift you received is really nice. I didn't know they did birthday month stitching charts. I am very new to this stitching bug. Can't wait to see it finished.

What a great story about your mother. I hope I look as young as her when I am 92.

Great progress on your stitching!

How wonderful for your Mom to be honoured this way! You both must be thrilled. The story is a lovely tribute to her.
I'm so happy she taught both you and Kathy to stitch. Otherwise we might never have met!
