Georgie's PIF & a New Book

Can you believe how utterly gorgeous this little pinkeep is? Georgie, of Whoomsa fame, sent me the most darling pinky PIF this past week!! It's just ME. Pink, blue and pastels, a little girl figure, bird and flowers...it's perfect. Then, she included wonderful threads, which I always love, and needles, and a sweet little bathsalts. All in a pink box. Georgie, you make my heart sing with pure joy...I actually yelped and laughed when I opened your package. Thank you so much!!! And, thanks for the pictures, too, so I could share with everyone.

This new book really piqued my interest. Reviewers said it was hard to put down and that it is a great book. It seems to be about a man who is from a formerly very wealthy banking family, who, upon his 90-something-th year goes back in time to Vienna and soon has Sigmond Freud as a mentor, artist friends, lovers, a worthy enemy, an acquaintance with Mark Twain, a heartbreaking crush on a beautiful American woman....and a surprising insight into the young war hero who was to become the father he hardly knew. My little Stella (kindle storyteller) snapped the book up before I knew what my fingers had done!!!

Our local EGA is have a "Midnighters" meeting on Friday, and I'm gearing up for it. This will be my first one....and I hear it's so much fun. We gather at about 7PM and stay all night. Food is no problem, we play stitching games, and we collect things for the Ronald McDonald House (for families of children with cancer at the adjacent hospital)...and we stitch and talk. I'm really looking forward to it...will bring my camera...the sad little instrument. More later on this.

Hugs, Deb

You previous post was spot on how Americans feel...poor, middle of the road or rich I think everyone is suffering except those Exxon execs eh? Your exchange is simply beautiful, the pink just puts a smile on one's face! Thanks for the wonderful blog reading, it was enlightening.

Hi Deb, your pinkeep from Googie is really lovely. I think she has selected the perfect design for you. It is something I think you would really love. I notice in the photo there is some soap by Cath Kidston. Love her material designs.
I hope you all have a lovely time at your stitch in. Sounds wonderful.
