Bonnie spent the day with me on Saturday...she brought me a lovely fob that she made for my birthday. The music note charm is such a wonderful touch!

She also was on a hunt for me and found this VERY pretty scissor frog for me...she has a good way with the store owner and got me a good deal!

So I've added my scissors to it and love the look.

My mother made me this lovely stitched piece and framed it herself for my birthday...it has a place of honour on my stitching cabinet.
I love it soooo much!

It was my Mothers 95th birthday yesterday and we had dinner at my brother and SIL (Both standing) My other brother is beside me with my other SIL at the end of the table. Mom at the head.

Mom enjoyed having just a small do with just her family!
It was a wonderful dinner!

My family
I am the luckiest person in the world to have my Mother and my brothers living within minutes to my home!
We are close in all ways! That in itself is a gift from God!!!

Stitch with happy fingers.

Stitches for friends!

My friend Nan is making a quilt with the  Prairie Schooler Alphabet so our Thur. group is helping her out by stitching some of the letters for her. I'm doing S is for Sewing..what a fun stitch!

Anne (Nan's  daughter) was struggling with the next piece and was going to throw it away...I volunteered to finish it for her!!! it is quite difficult because of some long crosses over 1&2

 This is what it will look done...It really is so lovely..I couldn't bear to see it get thrown out. I have worked on the trees and so far so good...Anne has stitched the trees on the left so she actually did quite a bit!

Have a great week all and stitch with happy fingers!
