~ Oh Happy Days ~

I'm so happy...I just finished stitching Patriotic Sampler.I'm really pleased with the way it turned out. For stitching I used Wavy Navy by Crescent Colours, I really like the subtle shading affect you get when you stitch with the blended flosses. I know my
birthday was a few days ago but I just had to share last night with you. To celebrate my birthday Rob and Michelle ( I'm A Little Teapot) invited us out to dinner...my choice of restaurants. We went to the Elephant Bar....it is a great place and has the most wonderful food. What a happy evening, good food, good times with good friends...can't get much better than that. Hope everyone is enjoying their weekend too, hugs, Linda

Oh, I agree...good times with good friends are a cherished thing, especially during these days. I think it is these times that we always look back and reflect on. By the way....love your stitching! Do you frame all of your pieces and display them in your home? If you do, do you place them all on one wall or throughout the house? Blessings,Kathleen
