My special package...






I came home from a awlful day at work only to find a package from my friend Shirlee & my order from Anita's..just what I needed...

Shirlee and I are having a friendship exchange all year; she spoiled me..:) and I feel so very blessed that she knows I love snowpeople and she stitched me this beautiful pillow. Those of you who knows Shirlee you know she hates to stitch with white threads..LOL you did a wonderful job hun; and I appricate and will cherish this forever; I put it right up on my cabinet along with the other snowman you painted for me. I met Shirlee when I won her giveaway on her blog last year. :) she also sent me some beautiful material, a wonderful towel w/pineapple & 2 cute charts. I love everything; thank you hun...can't wait til you get your package...:) I was a few days late sending it...

I was very happy with my order from Anita. She mailed it out fast and it was packaged very nice. Check out 123 Stitch; they just posted some new Homespun Elegance charts that I have to have...I ordered a few skeins of GAST & CC and the "Sergie" chart yesterday and ended up added 2 of the new Homespun Elegance charts;but there are 2 more I want and a few others. When does this maddness end with ordering stash?? It seems the more I get the more I want..I just tell Kenny that I'm saving for when I'm retired; I won't be able to order much then so the more I have now the less I'll have to order then right???? LOL Here is my progress on my February Cottage; I just love the colours..

And of course what would a posting be without a picture of my adorable granddaugther & my new kitty; she's my lap buddy now. Funny when we first got her she hissed and tried to bite us for about 2 weeks; she hid and wouldn't come out then all of a sudden she's acting like she's been here forever; she greets me at the front door purring when I get home from work and lays with me always...I'm falling in love with her...:)

Thanks for sharing such nice pictures. I am still waiting on the floss for my February Cottage. I know what you mean about the more stash you have the more you need.

Nice stash and gifts and progress on your February cottage.
As usual, Scarlett is so cute in her Tu-Tu. :)
Baby looks right at home now, she's really a beautiful kitty-cat.
