Happy dance for me! I finished Ebb Tide and stitched my heart and some of the border, then sent off my sampler for the Friendship RR. I'm really looking forward to this.
This past weekend was such a blast. I flew to Tulsa, OK, for a quick visit with my brother and family. Here they are at the Aquarium.
It was awesome - so much so that I posted some of the cool pics.
On the way in from the airport, we stopped off at The Silver Needle. I can't say enough good things about this LNS. We all have our home LNS that we love, but it's so exciting to go out to different LNS' and see what's around and look at all the models. SN is absolutely packed with them.
I walked in, introduced myself as a fan from NC, and they gave me the tour of the place, front and back. It is massive and they have a huge ONS business. I was so impressed with their set-up and friendliness. There were models everywhere. They must have had every Mill House pillow, etc., in existence stitched.
I was good, however, and only bought two. Mainly because we had three children in the store with us who were dying of boredom and we couldn't stay but so long. I could have spent hours there, for sure, but I was there to spend time with family, not shop! Probably saved me some money - LOL.
Isn't if fun to get mail (not bills), especially stitching mail? The mailbox was overflowing this week, and so fun. First I received my Monopoly pattern from Shelley with the Monopoly SAL group. Then I received my order from 123 Stitch, which was a gift from Rhonda in ILCS for winning bingo, and of course I added another chart. LOL Then the first RR came in and it's beautiful! Can't wait to stitch on it this weekend.
So here's a pic from SN and the mail.....
A big thank you to all who have encouraged me with comments about my mom. She's doing much better and her "good" eye is just super dry, which has been causing the problem. Nothing else has happened there, so we are counting ourselves blessed.
And lastly, I leave you with pictures of the winter that hopefully will soon be gone, even though we don't get snow very often. I can truthfully say that Montana thoroughly enjoyed it. But it's supposed to be 79 here this weekend. Come on in, Spring!
I know, I know, I'm like a new mother......but seriously, isn't he adorable????
Glad someone could enjoy the cold weather!
