Time for~~~

our celebration get away....eight years cancer free for me and feeling great. Lisa and I are heading to the coast....Morro Bay, a beautiful little spot. I love it here and look forward to our yearly get away... the days are spent beaching, shopping, poking around in a couple of little nearby towns, even an old grave yard, enjoying delicious clam chowder, plus we find time to read and stitch. We are busy but it sure is fun...I'll see you towards the end of this month, until then wishing you happy days....hugs, Linda

My mail today was exciting...there was a package all the way from Holland. Recently I won a surprise give~away from Heidi at All My Scattering Moments..... Heidi is so talented...not only is she a wonderful stitcher but she tats and quilts too. If you've never visited her I hope you won't be disappointed and you will find yourself inspired by her beautiful work ......anyway, every so often she has a surprise give~away and I recently won. I love the scissor fob she you see the cute little bells, I told her when they jingle I'll always think of her. Now the scissor fob was wonderful by itself but she also surprised me with a RAK...the precious stitch, Pineapples by LHN and all the wonderful floss to stitch this pretty. I've always loved this design and the sentiment that's associated with pineapples....I'm so looking forward to beginning this project....thank you are a sweet soul.
