I had a happy dance on Wednesday night, but I wanted to keep it to myself until I could show the piece to the owner. Which I did on Friday, so now I can share it with you.
How I received Kathy's ABC Christmas Sampler
ABC Sampler - Kit
Kit by Design Works Inc.
After visiting with Kathy on Friday for a few hours, to help her with some finishing I popped down the road to Ann's and Knowledge and Needles. I spent the afternoon stitching with her "Friday Stitchers", Bonnie was able to take the afternoon off to come stitch as well! Thanks Bonnie!
Chatelaine - sorry hard to photograph
Ann's husband Dan also had something of his own to show off as well! On Friday evening he threw me the keys to this.... and let me take it out for a spin on my own!
My shit-eating grin while driving Dan's 'Vette
It was a joy to drive his 50th Anniversary Edition Corvette ... convertible and he impressed me by having a 6 speed manual transmission. A sprots car with an automatic transmission is just a waste of metal! Oh my what a pleasure it was to drive! It had a gorgeous purr/rumble, I didn't mind downshifting for a change, the power was there when I wanted it, and the transmission was nice and tight! Thanks Dan for letting me take her out for a spin!!!
I worked on a couple of projects this past weekend.
Kit - Cross Stitcher Issue 260
Saturday that left me with a new start! Yes, I had plenty of other projects to stitch up but I have this gift that needs to be done. I can only show you a wee corner since the recipient is known to read my blog. I'm now over 1/2 way done this piece, and its looking great!
