ABC Exchange from Chris
I received this sweet ABC Exchange from Chris today- she stitched me a lovely stitcher's pocket that has felt in it for needles, heart shaped mother of pearl rings for floss, and a pocket for scissors. I am having serious (operator) issues with my camera right now, and my two attempts to get a photo of the insides failed miserably - sorry Chris! (I must have mistakenly hit a setting button on my camera and just cannot find my way back yet....). She also sent me some gorgeous Vintage Cashel linen, velveteeen ribbons, buttons (in a tube that looks like lip gloss - LOL) and charms! Oh, Chris has studied me very, very well! Those charms will all find their way onto fobs, for sure!!! Thank you so much Chris - you really made my day... which until I got these treats just looked like this: Rain, rain, rain! (See camera operator issues continue - how hard was this photo to take?? Not hard! But, I still messed it up!).... yucko!! And my daylilies are really blooming today - but they are mushy, no photos... sigh...
It is a bittersweet day today. Today would have been my father's 72nd birthday. We lost him in 1995. Each year is the joy of Mike's birthday on June 22, and the sadness of missing my father on June 23.... a rollercoaster ride of emotions every June.
No stitching of my own to show today...shhh.... off to start a super important birthday gift, no peeking ;-)
Stitched on today: Started a gift **Mailed off Christmas in July Exchange today
