She was tickled that they had thought of her and really went on at how it was wrapped so, she really liked the old fashion card and the yummy little chocolates. Thank you Peg and Masterchief for your kind words and support. That really struck the heart.
So after sharing in the excitement over the phone with the Navy Girl; with my heart smiling from this sweet moment, imagine my surprise when I went out to my box the same evening and found a sweet package from none other than Peggy Lee!
I got right back on the phone with the Navy Girl before I opened it. We will both cherish these darling little heart boxes that she finished so beautifully! It doesn't have to be Grandiosious to have a big impact. Thank you Peg for thinking of us.
Yesterday we actually made it; we had our girl's day out. It snowed for most of the day but the roads were clear. I took Rhonda to the Purple Cow in Fairfiled before we descended upon Fairfield Antique Mall, the largest in Maine. There are five floors of dealers. It was a great outing; I told Rhonda Derek and I usually come this time of year when we are getting cabin fever to meander around the booths. Sometimes you find something, sometimes you don't. Rhonda picked up the cutest print of pigs in a bath tub to hang in her bathroom, nope I didn't get a pic. It was adorable.
Here's what I found:A cute mini candle box,love the wavy paint; and a Gutermann & Co tin with the threads inside.
I picked up another fish dish to add to my collection that will be eventually be hung on the wall.
I guess I could show you the others, if you care to see.
I know strange collection, but I think it will look great on the dining room wall. I love the large flounder plater, it is handmade and signed on the back, nobody famous, just somebody. :-)
I was tickled pink when I picked up this Puritan rug hooking frame for a SONG!
My husband said he will make me the plank that is missing in the bottom, no problem.
I will close with a progress picture of C-a-tHRH...
not much progress, but its progress none the less.
Keep on stitching! P.J.
