pies, pals, pillows & packages!!!!





This week is spring break, so I do not have to babysit!!!! On Monday, my best friend came over at 8 am, to help my make pillows. I am attaching pictures of 2 of the 3. One is the cardinal piece that I got in my Christmas exhange on one of the boards---THANK YOU JOANN!!! I love how this one turned out!!!! The other is a Lizzie Kate that I stitched years ago.

Before my friend got here, I had baked an apple pie. You see, I had an online friend & her family coming over that night!! We had never met, but I knew they liked apple pie. You can see the pie here also!!!

Monday night, we met the family at a local eating establishment. After we had our meal, we came here & had pie & ice cream!!! The husband & kids stayed a while, then headed back to their motel. She stayed here & we made a cube it & played in my stash!!!!

I received a package of fabric in the mail that day also. Oh, so many pretty colors!!!!!!

As you can see, I had fun with pals on Monday!!!

On Tues, the online friend & I went to the nearest to me LNS!!! We had a blast!!!! I love that shop & she enjoyed seeing a new shop!

When I got home, I had another package in the mail!!! A dear friend had made a gift & surprised me with it!!!!!!!!

Today, I finished my Dear Diary Julia Flynn piece. I wasn't sure about this one as I did it, but as I added the border, it really came together & I love it!!!

Ok, I think that brings me up to date! I hope to stitch a lot more this week!!!!!!
