Dawn is Back!

After a brief, but necessary, hiatus, Dawn is back tonight!!! I really love stitching on this one!
There was a treat in my mailbox when I got home from work tonight :-) I received the Garden Theme Exchange from Judith today. She stitched me one of my favorite designs, which was so sweet of her! And... she sent a gorgeous package of stationery by Marjolein Bastin - another of my favorites! Thanks Judi!!

And, more good news! Karin let me know tonight that my little birthday gift for her has arrived safely :-) Karin loves color, so I really went for it with choosing something with wonderful colors. I am glad that she likes it, and it was such a pleasure to stitch this for her.
9 Carre's Fob
Tournicoton - chart found here
Antique White Cashel Linen, DMC floss
Stitched 6/2/07

I enjoyed your funny comments about Beau and my new chair :-) Beau let me have the chair tonight, no problems!! Some asked if my birthday is soon. No, not all that very soon. It is July 31. I think Mike is just in the birthday mood, and probably dropping me hints, as his birthday is next Friday, June 22 - LOL! No worries, he is getting a much coveted Apple iPhone (OK if he peeks here, since he is already tracking the phone down, which isn't released until June 29 anyhow... MEN!!)

Oh, and Kudos again to the post office! Mike posted Barbara's RR off to Annemarie in The Netherlands on Monday... and she received it today!

Stitched on today: Started a gift, and Dawn, Fairy Spirit of Grace

Dawn is beautiful as always, and the fob you made for Karin is lovely too. I saw Judith post a picture of the exchange earlier, it is lovely and would have been fun to find in your mail box. Glad you were able to reclaim your chair from the kitties so that you could use it.
