Happy, Happy, Happy!!

Yep, that's what I am! I won the First Year Blogoversary drawing over on Vickie's blog and the mail man delivered a beautiful package to me today. It contained a beautiful bottle-cap pincushion, and pink pin pillow with beautiful pins included. There was also a gorgeous pair of pearl earrings (which just happen to be my birthstone) and a beautiful card.
Thank you Vickie.
Due to the predicted blizzard (that didn't come) for our area this past Wednesday, Stitch Night was canceled so I'll have to share the Friendship Bread next time.  I did get a chance today to visit the 50th Annual Needlework Exhibition at Woodlawn Plantation here in Mount Vernon, VA.
I picked up a patch and a commemorative pin to go along with my exhibit program.  I stopped in the gift shoppe and there was basket labeled "Nelly's Stash" and it was so inviting . I started thumbing through it and all of a sudden these charts jumped out at me as if they were possessed by "Nelly" herself and I had to bring them home with me for only $4.00



As I was driving home for some reason my truck just automatically turned and parked in front of "In Stitches"   and I had to go in. While there I found this:
Isn't it pretty?  Well I think that's enough excitement for one day, so I'm off to relax and make some beautiful little xxs.  Thanks all for stopping by.

Congratulations on winning Vickie's beautiful give-away.
I love going to needlework shows but there aren't many in my region. You certainly had a lot of fun at the exhibit - and at the gift shoppe as well, lol.

Congrats on your win, the goodies look so pretty! Great new stash, it had to happen when going to a show!!! It would be sooo silly to come empty handed, wouldn't it?? Looking forward to go to our local one in a few weeks time!!! Have a great weekend Minnie x

Good Morning Minnie! I am so glad you are happy with the gifts I made you. =)
I notice your last picture, This Home by Erica Michaels. I enjoyed the petite chart I did from her last year, but I did need the magnifier!

Yay! I'm so excited to go this year. The last two years I've gone were so fun.

Oh Minnie...you've almost made me homesick for Virginia. (Tho not too much because I do remember the cold and snow, as well. Blech! LOL). I would go to that exhibition every year when we lived in the DC (far suburbs). I was always gob-smacked by the setting and the talents that were on display. I loved the stash that jumped into your basket. I can't wait to see them bloom with your needle! :)
