I'm collecting the "Mary Kirby" series to do for my little granddaughter, Hadley, and was so tickled that Barbara enclosed "Mary's Kirby at Home" for me. Since she and I are "Strawberry Moon" girls (according to Cherokee legend; all girls born under the Strawberry Moon are considered special and gifted spiritually)...Barbara sent a "Berry Nice Sampler" chart. And a darling, "Stitched for Your View," friendship sampler showing girls with houses--that's adorable by Becky-Boos. And, finally, Little by Little's "Lil Bo Peep Samplar" which I simply adore!!
I love every bit of the charts and especially the little pinkeep she stitched!! My photography doesn't do it justice. It is just darling with such delicate colors and on the back, Barbara has stitched one of the quotes she likes by Thomas Fuller, 1732..."Many things grow in the garden that were never sown there." I'm so fortunate to have her for a friend...all because of our love of stitching...
I was very spoiled for my birthday, as well, with friends' cards and well-wishes. Thank you for thinking of me to:
Deb in CT, Isabelle, Patti, Julie, Carol, Marlene, and Kathy.
I'm happy to be home again! Hugs, Deb
