I love her. I can't wait to dress her....got a few thoughts running around my head, especially after seeing Jackie DuPlessis' peddler doll. She was a real distraction for me last night as I tackled Santa's Tree Farm, but today I'm calmer and ready to get back to the work at hand. But Thank You, Sara, for thinking of me and especially bringing me the Merry Cox doll. But after Christmas, I might just get on this. Meanwhile, Sara had to purchase a small piece of luggage in Arizona because she didn't have enough room in her suitcase for all the stash she purchased and her class stash. She is going to be really busy trying to get all her purchases done....in fact I'll bet some of it never sees the light of day again, but she was thrilled and she purchased some lovely sampler patterns from The Attic that will be treasured if she can get to them. If she can't she's got more stash to look at and enjoy. And she was inspired by Jean from The Attic to purchase and start stitching on the higher count linens, so she brought back several of those..on my, 46 and above....I can't see it let alone stitch it. Oh, how I wish I had access to those back in the day. Anyway, I'd say Sara's week in Arizona was a trip that will live on in her memory bank as one of the best week's she's ever had. But I'm glad to have her home. I really don't sleep well when my children aren't at home each night. Although last night everyone was at home and I woke myself up from a dead sleep as my heart was pounding and racing so much it sounded like someone was hammering. When I got up and did some deep breathing to calm my heart down and get it back into a normal rhythum, I realized the hammering I heard was my heart, so of course, I was up for the rest of the night thinking about that. Like I have time for that. I have stitching which needs to get done. So I'm going to get back to it....hope you are finding time to get some stitching done as well. Have a great weekend.
