Happy Birthday, Abby!

Hello fellow stitchers! Happy Birthday, Abby!! Happy Birthday eve to my Sammy-girl!! And thank you to my fellow Friday night stitchers!! It was a fun group-some new faces, some not as new(don't want to say "old" !!) We had a great time and thanks to Lise for the coconut macaroons!!
Got back for NH last night-my Southwest flight was 1.5 hours late so bedtime was very, very late for me...was a good weekend with my folks and my great niece's 1st birthday (the Molly Sampler was for her)...her mum (my niece) loved it-which is always a great feeling-giving such a huge piece of yourself away can be tricky-my stitched pieces become a part of me-I kept a picture of little Molly with the piece and thought about her/her future as I stitched...it's a creation of the heart and hands...and to know that someone else will treasure it after it leaves your hands makes the heart and soul contented. I was reading a book that Beth bought called "The Secret Lives of Dresses"...it touched on similar issues-and there I was on the plane crying...the book has it's downfalls but it is an interesting one.
Hope all is good with you all-that you had a good weekend-I missed my pups but received such a warm, noisy, sloppy welcome home.
The above is going into my stash-it is the completed Inn at Fox River by Little House-I can not wait until it arrives here!!
Well, off to finish ordering Hoffman--enjoy your Tuesday!!

Peeks at upcoming favs!

Hi all-Hope you're seeing/feeling touches of Springtime! We hit almost 80 yesterday-Beth was so happy-me, I thought it felt a tad too warm-I enjoy the days of 50's and 60's-today, we are seeing our share of grey skies and showers-that' s what we're supposed to see, right? But days like this make it hard to get out of bed! Lucky for me I have those woofers that don't like to sleep too late!

Little House has given us a sneak peek at the Inn at Fox River...now you know that's a must for this fox lover! Poor Mr Miley has heard our neighborhood fox the past several nights-and he feels it his duty to bark him away at 3:30 in the morning! Sometimes there is that love/hate thing going for those foxes!

The next two are due out by Plum Street-I'm going to have to change mine from "lazy" to "crazy"!

Lastly is Country Cottage's next release-Red, White and Bloom-Connie is going to love this one!

Beth and I and the gang head to our first Phillie's game this week-after watching all of the basketball that has been on I haven't tuned in to see much baseball yet-this will get us kickstarted...

Well, back to mail order-thanks for checking in--hope all is good with you all!

xoxo Molly
