Hello Dear Friends! Yesterday was so much fun! Trinity and I loaded up in the car & left out early to visit with my dear friend Sher and her family. It was a fun day for all I think! The kids got a chance to run & play (the weather was awesome again!) and Sher and I had a chance to chat & hook the day away! Sher and her hubby, Keith, made a delicious lunch of grilled chicken, salad, and angel hair pasta... topped off with Peanut Butter Pie. YUMMY!
Sher gifted me with a darling basket full of wools. She said this was a belated birthday present. Thank you! :) I also had a chance to give her a gift that I stitched up a few months back. You see, Sher is always giving me crafty supplies & inspirations. In fact, she also gave me a box full of other fabrics yesterday she saved from a clean out at her Mom's house! A while back she gave me a couple of old wood pieces. They look like old door panels or cabinet doors ~ with old, white paint on them. She had the idea of attaching a sampler to them & said I ought to try it. Well, I did & knew she had to have one. I think she liked it.
Here is the sampler closer up...
I designed and stitched this one especially for Sher ~ including her initials and motifs that I felt were special to both of us. The wording "Give Her The Fruit Of Her Hands" seemed appropriate because she is constantly making something or tending to her home/garden. I attached the sampler to the board with just some simple, black carpet tacks.
Sher, thank you again to you and your family for sharing a fun day with us & having us in your home.
I'm not sure what is on the agenda for today & I am up way earlier than normal. Maybe I'll sneak outside to watch the sun rise!
Warm smiles to you all...
