Thank you for all of your birthday greetings and great comments on Vonna's mouse pillow and the mail art. I have been stitching away this week on my PiF gifts. I'm so tempted to share photos but I will wait until they are all finished, mailed and received. In the meantime, to the right is a picture of my start on The Sampler Girl's Jane Austen Sampler from the Gift of Stitching magazine. I love this quote, it is too true.
You may have noticed this gorgeous pillow over at Mary Kathryn's blog. She treated me this week to an incredibly lovely gift, a monogram pillow on black toile that she finished so beautifully. It is my new treasure, and every time I look at it, I smile with happiness. It is a wonderful addition to our home!
There are comforts to be had away from home, however .... Yesterday was my fourth wedding anniversary, and tonight my husband and I are dining and staying overnight at a historic bed and breakfast called the William Penn Inn. Our package includes roses and champagne in our room and I am so looking forward to the mini-get away!
One last "Home"-themed note: Would anyone like my "Home of a Needleworker" chart? Since I finished the design, I don't think I'll need it again, and I'd be happy to send it to the first person who leaves me a comment and asks for it.
