Columbus Day Holiday

How nice it was to have the day off from work. It was in the 80's F here, and probably the last time for several months. It was nice! And, I worked a bit more tonight on An Emblem of Love. The swan is finally stitched :-)
I received two RAK's in the past week (or more) and forgot to share them. Becky sent me this beautiful Truly Thine chart, one of the retired Loose Feathers Club designs from Blackbird Designs. And, Karen sent me a stunning custom cut of Days Gone By belfast by Silkweaver for Jeannette Douglas's My Stitching Treasures! What lovely gifts, thank you!!!!
