A great morning

I checked my e-mail last night and had one from Beatrice.  She and Kathy were in Tulsa, which is 40 minutes of Okmulgee! They wanted me to meet them at the Silver Needle this morning.  How could I not go?  These two ladies were   some first exchange partners I ever had.  Having read their blogs since 2007, I felt like I knew them already.  They shopped and I supported.  After their pocketbooks were lightened just a little we went to lunch.  They are delightful ladies.  I had a blast talking with them.  Here we  are at the Silver Needle. Oh yes, for those of you who don't know their stitching, they are from Canada and were on a road trip.  They had been in southern Texas and were making their way back home.  Maybe one day we can take a trip together.  From left to right, Beatrice, Moi, and Kathy.

HoE Christmas Bird from Lisa S.

Whee, it's been so long since I posted that Blogger has a whole new look!  I'm having to learn how to use it all over.

Yesterday the mailman brought my HoE Christmas bird exchange piece.  It is from my ole stitchin' pal Lisa.  We've exchanged many pieces over the years.  She decided to change designers on me.  Usually she stitches a Prairie Schooler, but this time she chose LHN's Quaker Birds.  "She did good", as we say here in Oklahoma.  I love the trim on it.  Thanks Lisa!!
I've been in such a funk since my trip, that I've just put the finishing touches on my exchange piece.  It will go in the mail tomorrow.
