Another great birthday gift!






I am late posting this, because I have been gone for a few days. BUT....on my birthday, I had a package arrive in the mail!!!
My dear friend Carol I. sent me a gift. She stitched a beautiful pinkeep for me. She explained to me what each part of it represented in her mind. I thought that was so special! I am going to print that email & put it with the pinkeep, so that I can remember. My memory is so bad, I am having trouble remembering right now.
My husband & I have not taken a vacation or done anything for a LONG time. (I think our last get away was 2 or 3 years ago, for a weekend) So, I planned a get away for us. We went to Spring Mill State Park in southern IN. It is a gorgeous park. We walked every trail that they have in the park. We logged over 12 miles on trails alone.
I haven't done much stitching at all the past week, so I don't think I have any stitching pictures to show, but maybe soon. I NEED to work on a wedding gift.
Have a wonderful week!!!

So glad you had a relaxing and enjoyable get-away, Shari. I'm sure it was wonderful to get all that hiking in, too.

I'm really happy that you liked your birthday gift--I had a great time making it for you :)
