I have found myself to be totally spoilt by Becky! My goodness, I am speechless over this lovely box of Valentine's Day gifts that arrived yesterday! She sent me this cute Lizzie Kate flatfold, an adorable little tote with a Bent Creek design on it, and this most amazing needlebook that I had been admiring on her blog! And, on top of all of that, she sent me a little journal too! She knows how much I love gardening, and she is right - she cannot go wrong with gardening themed items for me. As I said, I am speechless and I really don't know what I have done to deserve this. Becky, you are such a good friend, thank you from the bottom of my heart!
Two corners down now...two more to go - finally, half way there!!!
And, a shot of part of my back porch... we did not get as much snow as originally forecasted. We got a little more than this much, but this pretty much says it all...


Stitched on today: Medieval Town Mandala

Becky certainly did spoil you. She always does lovely work. She's very talented when it comes to finishing things off. I'm still not sure how she does it! You deserve it plain and simple by being you. Enjoy!

What a great package from Becky, and some great progress on the mystery! That is a lot of stitching for a month!

We got a lot of snow and i'm home today enjoying NOT going back out in it after driving home yesterday from NH through the storm!

Bine said...

WOW!!!! Congrats! You did a great job on MTM!!!! Half done - I can't beleive it. Directly translated from German slang I would say you celebrate humpparty :-))))

Dawn said...

Those are some lovely gift from Becky. She did a wonderful job. I love your picture of the snow. Makes me want to go and play in the snow. Only problem is if I try that here I will be playing in mud puddles.LOL

Jenna said...

I'm glad that Becky spoiled you rotten because you deserve it! :) I'm really enjoying your progess on MTM. It looks great!

How much snow did you actually get? We had a little bubble form in our area, which was just one half of the county (my half, of course), that got 12 - 18"! Fun stuff, but I would sure enjoy it more if other people in the area knew how to drive in it...

Susimac said...

Oh Wow what a lucky stitcher you are and what a lovely friend Becky is, I too would be speechless with that lovely box. Mandala is looking great too. Can I have some of your snow please, I'm asking nicely.

Little Grey Cat said...

Wow what gorgeous gifts off Becky. And when you get snow you REALLY get snow don't you! Not the sad little sprinkle we get here.

PS I really did update my blog this time.
