I had lunch with Nicole (Carolina Dreams) last Thursday in Port Charlotte. We had such a great visit, and I left crying because I miss her so much. Nicole is a sweet and gentle person who always has a smile. With three active little boys, that alone is hard to imagine! Her needlework is just impeccable, too. I think she's the best! I really cherish our friendship...and miss her at our stitching times and the lunch visits we used to carve out for ourselves. The quote on the above Workbasket chart is "A stitch in time saves my mind." :] Love the little rabbits on the bowl... This is one of the new charts I got at Golden Needle when I went up to meet Nicole. Also was able to stock up on some Crescent Colors and a couple of Homespun Elegance charts..."Stitching Necessaire" and "Joyful Autumn."
I've been making more necklaces in preparation for Fall arts weekends in Naples. I've sold several this Summer, and I'm hoping to get some in local high-end shops for our "season," and to get a booth at the arts festivals. Once I get some more made...I'll post some pics.
That's my life, other than reading and grandbaby visiting! Kellan is now 10 lbs. and growing fast! Marie P. has been so dear to send darling knit caps and some bibs for Kellan. Thanks so much, Marie! And, thank you, too, for all of your emails and comments with congratulations and well wishes!
I'd like to give a wave to my son, Jon, who often reads my blog but doesn't always comment. We were delighted to have a brief visit with him when he was in Naples last week on a business trip. I'm so proud of him. He works for Scholastics, and lives in NYC near my other son, Frank, and granddaughters Amelia and Ella. I love you, Jon!!
