Glad to have you as a stitching friend Laurel. Can't wait to see more of you work. It is all just lovely. I feel as if we are already friends as well. You have a wonderful week end and find some time to stitch. Oh and enjoy those beautiful flowers. They always smell so sweet. Hugs Elaine

Virginia must be a nice change for you. I'm glad to see that you are exploring stitching! Were you in Nancy Chute's 4H sewing class?
Feeling close to your Mother, Cousin and GrandMother while your stitching is not strange at all! It reflects in your work as I have had a smile on my face the whole time looking at your wall. I find myself saying to you that we're so proud of you and this is where you belong!
