A RAK and a SAT...

Hello Friends and dear readers :o)

Hope this finds you all well! Yesterday I was RAK'd by the lovely and most generous friend of mine, Rachel. It was a total and complete surprise and here is the contents:
RAK from Rachel - sadly the chocolate was gone within about 5 mins. after this picture was taken...I did not share

Here is the lovliest of floss tags - it has a magnet on the inside so that my needle stitcks to the backside
Made from BBD designs Friendship Booklet

GORGEOUS isn't it? I love it Rachel and your sweet, kind words in the card made me cry. Thank you!

Next Up: last night was the Friday night SAT with Becky's Let's Stitch group and here is my progress on Something Wicked:

Something Wicked by La-D-Da

I didn't get that gol' darn thing done...but I did get that shoe done...doesn't look like a lot of stitching, but it is - I've nearly gone through a skein of black 310! All I have left is the words and the black box around the whole thing....maybe a couple of intense sessions and it will be finished. I did however order the frame that it is modeled on the cover in from East Side Mouldings yesterday. EXCITING......Soon my pretties...soon.....(*rubbing hands together* and cackling)....

Today the Pfeiffer gang is off to Joe Huber's Farm check out that food on the webpage...I walked an extra mile yesterday and I skipped supper and substituted some granola and a apple...I'm going to PIG OUT! *oink~oink*!! We're also going to Huber's Winery and Farm . Another Indiana point of interest and puts on display some of the finest things about Indiana. I'm excited to go....well really I'm just excited to go and eat, pick up a bottle or two of wine and then seeing the joy on my kids faces petting farm animals, picking apples, pumpkins, going for a hayride...those are just gravy on top of my well filled plate :o) LOL!

Pictures to come this week I'm sure on our farm family adventure! Until next time.....have a great day!

    Something Wicked is looking wicked! My pattern arrived yesterday, but I don't think I'll get it stitched for this year.

  26. Hello Vonna dearie,

    I'm so glad that you are happy with your gifties. :) It was a joy to stitch for you, my friend. Your Something Wicked looks super - wow, a whole skein of 310! That's a lot of work indeed. Can't wait to see it framed. Also the farm and winery outing sounds like just the perfect fall family treat!

  27. Love, love that "Something Wicked," Vonna. I can't decide whether it's because I'm a shoe freak or it reminds me of the Wizard of Oz!! :D Isn't that the sweetest RAK! Great that she chose Autumn colors, a magnet, and all! Have a happy time with family.
    Hugs, Deb

  33. What a lovely floss tag I like how that's finished! That shoe is just fantastic. I can imagine giving a few people a swift kick in the behind with that and it would really hurt!
