Spring Home from AmySC

Hello dear friends, post number two for today! But I couldn't let this one wait....I had a special package when I arrived home from work today! It was my Spring Home for the SBEBB from sweet AmySC. Here's what she stitched for me:
Country Cottage Needleworks Cottage Thread Pack
Modified to add Sheep (my favorite) and Yellow flowers (yellow and blue = Vonna's favorite colors) and she added my name....isn't it cute?! I love it so!
And she finished it in my FAVORITE finish....the pinkeep :)

The back with lovely yellow and blue fabric!


The whole "kit and kaboodle"!
Amy sent me lovely cards, a "V" magnet, some John James gold needles (never tried these bad boys!) and two hanks of linen in a lovely green and blue colors. I've already got projects figured out for the linen!
Well Keith and I did the 'ol "Tag your It" when I got home from work, he's now at work and will be until 11 p.m. tonight. It's 4 p.m. here now, so that means I need to make supper, finish homework with the students, load 'em up and haul 'em to baseball practice at 5:30, then back home at 7 p.m. just in time to get baths and into bed by 8 p.m. Then maybe Mama can get some stitching squeaked in before bedtime...fingers crossed!
Until next time....keep stitchin' and smilin'

    You amaze me at how you can work, take care of 4 children and still get so much stitching done. You are "wonder woman".

  10. That's such a great exchange, and so "you"! :D

    Tried to get a 'thank you' email to you regarding signing me up for the FS round, but it bounced back twice. So here's my "thank you, Vonna!" ;)

  14. Vonna,

    How do you do it all? Can you send me some advice? I work and have ONE child and still pale in comparison to your stitching accomplishments!

    Beautiful Pinkeep!!!

  15. I can't get over how much you get done, and you house is so warm and welcoming and beautifully decorated (and so spotlessly clean). And congratulations on the First Communion!

    Funny thing about the Pope visit. I was thrilled literally to tears, and I'm not even Catholic (I'm an Episcopalian--so maybe it's the Catholic "lite"?) Or maybe it's because I've thought from time to time over the years of converting (I believe that the Episcopalians, although in many ways similar, are simply getting some things "wrong," so sadly, I've stopped going to church. Then again, I'm divorced, so there's that.) But if anything is a shot in the arm in a shaky world, it's a visit from the Pope. It was wonderful to see so many joyful people.
