I also made a previously stitched ornament into the ornament tonight...it is so big, it could be a door knob hanger if they want!
Yesterday, my mom & my aunt came for the day, so we could go shopping together. This has become a yearly thing..they drive to here & then I drive the rest of the way...we shop & have lunch out. We had a nice day...I found some Peppermint Crunch Junior Mints that I have been searching for....they are for a new cookie recipe. Now, I am anxious to make them!!
My mom brought a surprise along for me. I have mentioned in the past that both my parents also stitch....I guess you could say I taught them something!!! (I started & since I have, both parents & one brother have started)
Anyway, I have always loved Koala Bears. My dad found a pattern & decided he would stitch it for me...he has been working on it for a while because he showed it to me last time we were up there.(sometime in Oct. I believe) He didn't tell me it was for me thou..just showed me!
Backing up, when the boys were here last time, I was giving all of them piggy back rides. My dad snapped a picture of me with J on my back. Little did I know, he had thoughts about that picture.
When I called him to thank him yesterday, he told me it reminded him of the picture he took of me & J. and that made it all the more special to him.
