~ Tonight Is Stitching Night ~

Hi everyone, I had a lovely Valentine weekend...hope you did too. Tonight is our stitchie get together and I'm ready... The cake is baked and frosted, this is a simple spice cake mix and ready made frosting but delish and ice cream is in the freezer. Carolyn, I wish you were here to enjoy....
Valentine flowers and candles on the table.....

Plates and napkins are set out too......and.......
My stitching things are ready. All I need to do is plug in my Ott Light and I'm good to go. We're hoping to finish this stitchie tonight and then on to our next project. My SIL, Carolyn is finished and waiting on us slow pokes. Can you see my sweet pink pin cushion from Betty at She's Sew Pretty? She surprised me with this cutie and I love it. Thank you Betty. Betty, has a lovely blog and makes the prettiest things, stop by, you won't be disappointed. I don't know about you , but I'm so scared I'll lose a needle while stitching. A pin cushion is a definite must and a pretty one makes it all the better. Well it's nearly time to stitch...see you soon...hugs, Linda

Hi Linda:
I have a small ott light, but yours looks like it has a magnifier. That would be great. Your stitching looks great. That cake looks so yummy. I hope it is a wonderful evening.

Your cake looks delicious and the beautiful flowers and candles make a wonderful atmosphere. I know that you had a wonderful evening. Our daughter, Jennifer, is 37 and I still use the handmade pin cushion that she made me when she was in Kindergarten.
Hugs,

The cake looks so yummy! I hope you had a great evening together. I love being with others who share my love of stitching or quilting. It is always inspiring. Did you get the sweet heart project done?

I love hearing that your sister (or SIL can't remember now) is also going to stitch Believe. I would love to see a photo of it finished. Hope you have fun with the 2nd ornament.

Hugs ~
Heidi

How I wish I could be part of your stitching group! Sew much fun!! Blessings, Kathleen

What a great hobby to have, and do as a group activity. I think that light would help me to stitch, though I don't know how. My eyes are not so good to even thread a needle anymore.

Happy sunny day today!
