Yesterday, I had to work from 8:30 to 4. Rich & Mariah took me to work so that they could keep the car to deliver Girl Scout cookies. When we got home, Mariah handed me a pretty red rose, a card, and a small Valentine's heart box of chocolates. Rich gave me 3 more red roses, and a card. Wasn't that sweet?? And I haven't had time to go shopping since I had to cancel the hotel room.
The mailman yesterday brought me several nice packages. First, my diploma came!!! I am officially a graduate!
I was part of a Snowflake exchange in One Crazy Stitcher Designs. My partner, Sherry, sent me HIHN's Snow chart with the cardinal button that goes with it, a beautiful collectible snowflake ornament, and a package of Mill Hill Treasures snowflakes. Thank you so much, Sherry!!!
Package #3 was the Joan Elliott chart for Petite Christmas Angels. PolStitches is hosting a SAL with the pattern for the first angel being free. Of course, I HAD to have all 4! I've ordered the fabric I want to do it on from 123Stitch so hopefully I'll be able to start it next week.
Speaking of 123Stitch, my partner for the Winter Exchange on ILCS sent me a $15 GC for 123Stitch. I used it for the fabric for Petite Christmas Angels and for Angel of Cross Stitch. Yes, I finally got the magazine! The ORIGINAL magazine in mint condition! It cost me $36 on Ebay, but I love this chart so much. It came out the year after Rich & I got married, in 1999, and I fell in love. It uses 391 colors, every color that DMC had at that time. I can't wait to do it!
Mariah also got a nice big package yesterday. Her Smart Globe came in the mail! For those of you not familiar with a Smart Globe, it is a computerized globe that can be programmed for age group or grade. By itself, it can tell you pretty much anything there is to know about any point on the globe. Connected to the computer, you can also get up to the minute current events regarding that globe. Awesome, right? Mariah had a ball playing with it last night!
Well, I need to get ready for work. Tell me how your Valentine's Day was!!
