The Mailman cometh!!!

I was just thrilled to find this sitting on my stitching chair when I got home today.
Ann of Knowledge and Needles sent me this most lovely NEW T.W. design. Isn't it pretty??
The thread is Wildflowers "Lemon N Lime"
When I was helping Ann set-up the store at the college 2 weeks ago, I sorted threads and colours and came across this one. I must have said it out loud that this was my favorite one. Green is my Colour...any Green!!!

Thank you so much for your generous gift Ann!!!

Have a look at her blog for the new look in the shop. Judie and I helped her put it back together again...Just like Humpty Dumpty!!!

Now you may remember the story [click here if you don't] about the yarn gone missing.
Well it was found and woven into this Swedish Weaving Afghan by little ol' me.
Thank you Kathy for the tutorial on the finishing. It turned out quite lovely if I do say so myself.

I have also been working on my HAED and Mira.
Page one is complete on the HAED...oh boy oh boy..I new start.. even if it is just a page, it feels BIG!!!!!

My Mom and I want to THANK YOU for all of the nice comments. She was quite thrilled.
I even had her siting at the computer scrolling and reading the comments.

Have a good week and Stitch with happy fingers.

What a great gift.
Finishing pages in HAED's is a great accomplishment! It's like it's own piece inside another.
All looking great.
