Isn't this a cute chart??? This was a Birthday gift from a longtime online friend. Her and I were matched up.....I think it was at least 8 years ago...maybe closer to 10. We do packages periodically....have been ever since....sometimes it's random...sometimes we get together and decide on a "summer".......or "Mother's Day"....package......I value her friendship greatly. Anyway, this chart, fabric, floss and buttons were part of my Birthday package....she also included notecards and hot chocolate!! I started this last night and will continue with it will hang in my kitchen when it is newly painted.

Today was a great day.....DH and I were able to go for a nice drive (just the two of us) and we went for freshcut fries (nothing better on a sunny, spring day) and a drive along the coast....past Peggie's Cove...and then it was time to pick up youngest and her friend at the Theatre.

This will be a busy week as well. My two best friends will be travelling to the city....on Tuesday my cousin will be in the city for "Blanket Club"...with her sister and myself...and on Thursday my other best friend Betty will be here for the night. She is taking her mom and sister to the airport, so she will come by our house and spend the night. I think we are going to make a Costco trip while she is here as anyway, I want to get my house in order for when she comes. It's not like either of these two friends live THAT is 100 miles, one is 125, but we really don't see each other as much as we'd like.

What else....oh yes.....this is what I've been using as my stitching basket for the past few months....I picked it up at a church rummage sale....I think it was $'s very sturdy and I love it! I cleaned out my stitching that I had in it last night....put a couple of WIP's away and took a couple more out....sigh......we all have so much stash, don't we??

Have a great evening everyone!!

That is a lovely chart and should make you smile each time you see it.
Glad to hear the weather is getting a little nicer.
Did I hear "stash" What stash? LOL

Happy belated Birthday! I did see that little reminder on Facebook and then forgot to say something!

That is a cute chart! Very perfect for this time of year :)

I have quite a stash, too and so many things in the works right now! I even have things traced and printed off stashed away for when I need something to stitch. I think I counted the other day and I'm working on 20 things! LOL

Jer, the kids and I took a ride today, too. We went out some back roads. Jer was hoping to see turkeys and we did and also a pheasant :) Jer actually managed to take me out a road that I have never been on in my life and I thought he took me across every back road around here! LOL It was a nice, bumpy ride and he was so proud of himself for getting me "lost". I realized where we were as soon as I saw the old railroad's the one that belongs to the group we ride at :)

Have a wonderful rest of your day!

I hope you enjoy your visit with your friends.

Happy belated Birthday. Beautiful chart and a sweet basket. That was a great buy.

Sounds like you had a nice day with hubby and it looks like you are going to be a very busy lady for the rest of the week.

Have fun!
