A very nice gift!!!

Look what I got from Texas.!!! Cindy F. sent me this after she drew my name for being one of her blog readers. Isn't it lovely. Thank You so much Cindy. I love it.
It is a beautiful chart by Lavender and Lace called... "Angel of Spring"
I will enjoy this chart and intent to stitch it one day soon!


Do you remember when I stitch this earlier this year. Well I waited to make it into a pillow until I found the perfect fabric for it.
Guess what,I found it... and on the weekend when I was putting things together for my Mom I made this!!!

I just love how this little pillow turned out.

I'm off to a stitching retreat this weekend at a lovely B&B not far from home. Ann of Knowledge and Needles is hosting this and we are looking forward to a lovely meal cooked by her DH on Sat. There are 18 of us going and o-boy will we eat, drink [water]and be merry. Lots of finger foods and treats. Yummmm.

Thank you for the good wishes for my Mom she had her procedure today and seems to be getting on just fine. I'll keep you posted.

Take care have a good weekend and stitch with happy fingers.

I absolutely love your elephant pillow. I collect elephants and this would fit right in with the herd ! Can you tell me who the designer of the pattern is ?

Wow wow wow I love it. Now if I get mine stitched and send it to you lol. I really must get some of my things out of the way as there are just so many things waiting in the background and calling to me, this little Nellie being one of them. The cushion is superb and sets it off brilliantly.

Beatrice please can you email me as I do not have your email address and wanted to speak to you.(mine is in the sidebar of my blog).
