A Gift and A Frame

I hope you have all had a delightful Valentine's Day.  I went to my volunteer  job at the school.  The kids made amazing boxes for their Valentines.  What a fun place to be on Valentine's Day.  Plus, I got more goodies to eat than I need so I brought some home to the SBA who was busy painting my craft room.  I'll tell you about that on another post.  Thanks so much for all your kind comments about my little Spring stitch.  Next post will have an update and you can see the bunny finally.
I was the very lucky winner of a give-away from CasaPearl over at " Stitching in LobsterLand" a really great blog! She took the time to look at my blog to see the kind of things I like.  How thoughtful!!  Plus she did a super job, an adorable Halloween  witch chart, a chart called Quaker Mini Treats(I love to stitch Quaker), and a chart with two historic samplers.  In addition to all that there were some beautiful colored threads and a great piece of linen.  The linen just might be what I'm looking for to do my next project. Thank you so much Patti!!!!
Last but not least, I picked up the framed France F.  I love the way it turned out!
Again, I hope this was a wonderful day for all of you my "cloud" friends!!( the SBA refers to you all as my "cloud" friends.)  I certainly do consider you all my friends!


Notice the cute card in the upper right corner.
 


Thanks for joining me!

  2. What wonderful things you received - great little Quaker chart and lovely linen. Frances' frame is perfect - it does not overwhelm the piece, but complements it well.
