Stitching Bits

Group picture of our Sunday Stitching Group that meets at Martha's (she's in front at the far left) house in Punta Gorda, FL. You can see me poking my head out on the back row 2nd from the end on the far right. What fun we had! I robbed this pic. off Martha's blog (Gone Stitchin', etc... see on my blog list..) since this was the first time I was caught without camera in a long time!

Stitching blogging friend, Nicole Neville, is on the front row 2nd from the right side! Many of you know her, I'm sure. I was delighted to finally get to meet her. We discovered we're both stitching Shepherd's Bush, "Happy Hauntings." And, Nicole helped me sort the threads on it while we caught up with eachother. She's a beautiful and very sweet person.

Wow! I want to thank Cheryl ( on the side...) for thinking of me as one who makes her smile in the blogging friends awards!! I'm just delighted that I do! Wow! Thank you so much, Cheryl. I'm supposed to name 10 others...but there are so many others who do, for me. It just wouldn't be fair. So, I'm pulling names from a hat and these are just the Fall representatives: THOSE WHO MAKE ME SMILE AWARDS

1) Patti from England (Queenie) My first blogging friend. The "Smile Though You Feel Like Crying" Award

2) AnnMarie from the Netherlands She's not Wackey...but wise!

3) Barbara Mainely from the Netherlands, too and the Most Thoughtful of Others Award

4) Harmien from the Eternal Sunshine of the Sparkling Mind.... :) and the "I Can Make You Gasp With Joy Award!" Harmien doesn't know selfishness.

5) Simone from the Joy of Gardening in a Dutch Country Backyard. It's Simone's joy to bring happiness and inclusion wherever she goes.

6) Lesley from Tintock Tap--- A fair, wispish lady who stitches like an ancient, wise celtic maiden in a faraway land....she may be there, and then, again, she may not be.....she's a Avalon, Lady of the Lake, girl

7) Heather of Jeweled Elegance....ooooh her spunk, her gorgeous pictures, her ideas and artistic eye!!

8) Kim's Threadheads Unite because she is alone with all that glorious creativity and beautiful work surrounding her magical mind and home!

9) Martha from FL, who is the "Heartlight" of my stitching world in FL

10) Marie Antoinette companion in obsession! See her flipping over historic costumes and movie classic dress designs, museum embroideries and fashions of the centuries... Soak in her love of Red, and eyes for color!

These are the best of those who I just adore and make me smile for the Fall.

Hugs, Deb

What a great compliment to your fellow stitchers. This has been a great way for us to read new blogs and meet new friends. What a great community we have amassed.

Oh my goodness, Deb, you're so kind!!! I'm speechless!!

You asked on my blog about Arden's due date, and since my email seems unable to get messages through to anyone lately, I'll respond here. ;) Officially, our GYN says 4 Jan, but in light of all that's happened and is happening, we expect him around the holidays. :)
