Oh, happy day! The Superbowl weekend was an enormous success, even with our web site down for the entire time. Drats. We're so sorry for that, but that wasn't our fault and thankfully Julie, our web person, got us up and running by Sunday, however, I wasn't able to blog until today for some reason. Anyway, I've been dying to show you some special items I received as gifts during the weekend. Just for no other reason than she's sweet, Stasi Burhman handed me the red felt envelope (isn't it cute?) and said, "I have a little something for you." Her little something was... 3 valentine bags inside the envelope, each with treats for me. The first bag had some supplies I will enjoy using when I'm finishing my treasures, the second bag was full of the most delicious fudge she made....yummmo(needless to say it's gone now)! And the 3rd bag had this precious little pin keep made to fit inside a locket (she got from Hobby Lobby) and then she stitched the one side on 52/60 linen (oh,, my!) and the other side she put in fabric with a little padding to hold my needles. Needless to say the only needles that fit are petites...so cute. I love this idea and she also told me she saw the original done with 32 ct. (I think or 28 ct) so I can replicate this...of course it can't say token of friendship because you need to do that on 52 for it to fit. But how sweet is this piece. I couldn't have been more thrilled.
