I got home from work on Thursday and there was this little box on the kitchen table with the rest of the mail. It was addressed to Madeline Walker. DH said it must be for you, but don't your stitching friends know your name? I thought it was kinda strange to, but didn't think too much about it .. not until I opened the package and started laughing, I mean laughing out loud .. I'm sure DH thought I'd lost my mind! This is a PIF from Ruthie, a good stitching friend that just can't seem to get my name right. She wrote this lovely little letter telling me why she stitched the reindeer for me and how this was one of her mom's old spools ... but she opened the letter calling me Mavis! Told you, I'm totally confused about who I am .. see this same Ruth Ann called me Margo and Midge all throughout the Fall Fling last October! I guess I'm just going to have to make a bigger nametag! Ruthie .. I love ya girlfriend! Here's the darling PIF she sent me ... I think this is truly my smallest reindeer! He's adorable!
I saw this online last week and just had to own it! I just love it! Now to work it into my ever growing rotation schedule ...
I've been stitching a lot this last week, but don't have much to show because it's all exchange stitching .. but I did start Earth Laughs on Monday ... OHHHH I love this fabric and all the colors ... this will be a fun stitch for sure.
My weekend has been really good .. Lisa and I went and saw Sex and the City Friday night. We started out at PF Chang's for drinks and lettuce wraps, salt and pepper shrimp and garlic pea pods .. then it was off to the movie. We really enjoyed it! Very funny and I thought it stayed true to the TV series pretty well. Terry and Robert went to see Kung Fu Panda with a few of Robert's friends .. it was definately a hit. Saturday and Sunday we worked about the house .. ya know the usual like laundry, grocery shopping, bathrooms .. all that fun stuff.
I hope you all had a wonderful week and weekend .. your blogs have been pretty busy .. it's always a delight to check in with you all. And keep those comments coming ... I really enjoy reading them!
I'm grateful for dinner and a movie with my BFF ...
