Working on the computer has been a trial all day long. Our provider seems to be having some problems which of course become our problems. Hopefully we'll be in the air long enough for me to write & post a short message.
Yesterday I received a lovely thick envelope from Karen
http://colourfulcreations.blogspot.com/ I had admired Karen's 'The Tea Room' when she was stitching it and when she noticed the pattern on my wish list she offered to send me hers. But not only did she send me the pattern, the envelope was filled with all kinds of goodies - a hand towel for me to embroider, banding to stitch bookmarks, an adorable tape measure with the cutest scissor charm, bordeaux fabric and a pretty card. Thank you so much Karen - it felt like Christmas.
Tomorrow DH & I are leaving for a short trip to Europe. He has to go there on business and we are very fortunate to be able to combine it with short visits to our DS & DD. The last time we were there was February so you can imagine how excited I am. We'll be flying home again next Friday which hopefully means the trip is too short for jet lag. As well as a good book I'll be taking some Christmas stitching along to keep me occupied during the flight - 'Winter Row" http://www.bentcreek.com/Winter%20Row.htm
Time to sign off before the provider does. Have a wonderful weekend & a good week everyone.
