Home From Denver

Rex and I have just spent the last 3 weeks in Denver, Colorado. Rex was there on business and while he was working I enjoyed exploring Denver, the suburbs, the LNS and meeting Staci!

Staci and I had a great time going to the thrift stores, visiting a favorite quilt shop she loves (which was wonderful!), having lunch and going to the coffee shop where I stitched and she knitted some gorgeous socks (which she just posted on her blog)! Staci is just as sweet as can be. I have found a very special friend in Colorado that I hope to see again soon!

When I picked up our mail today, my pinkeep exchange from the Friends Through Threads blog was waiting for me. Goldie stitched me a Blackbird Design that I had actually kitted up and put in my stitching bag to stitch while in Colorado and never got around to stitching it! Now, I don't have to!

Thank you so much Goldie, I love it very much!

I sent to Nancy (no blog) and I stitched a design by Carol R. called Sew Blue. I stitched it on 40 ct white over 2 using GAST Dungarees. Nancy loves it and I was enjoyed stitching it and finishing it for her so I have very happy she loves it so much.

The only stitching commitment I have right now is my Emblem rr piece. I am waiting to receive Deb's piece from Margaret and then after that I will just have to stitch on Edgar's piece and then the round robin will be completed. My round robin piece is really looking very pretty. This is one piece I am looking forward to getting framed.

Well, I think I will close for now. Thanks for stopping by.

I had SO much fun with you!!!

Beautiful pinkeeps! That blue on 40ct looks so delicate, and I love the backing fabric you used too :)

Several years back I was in an exchange with a Wendy Jo who xs'ed me a patriotic heart and made it into a little pillow. Would you be this person? I see you are in tons of exchanges :) I really enjoyed looking all thru your blog and have it bookmarked. Janet in Texas :)

I've just emailed you to see if you are back - came to visit and see you are!

Beautiful pinkeep you received from Goldie and of course I have already seen the gorgeous pinkeep you made for Nancy!

Glad you had a good time with Staci - next time I'm coming too!

The time you spent in Denver sounds absolutely great. IsN't it nice to meet a stitching blogger in real life?
And both pinkeeps are wonderful. Great choice of motifs.
