Don't worry. I'm not talking about our weather, although I see that
it's more than snowing in the Midwest and other northern places.
Yesterday, I received the final installment in the Sweet Stitches
Block of the Month Club from Shabby Fabrics..."Snow Day".
The snow lady in this kit is so sweet! She'll be fun to stitch.
Now I have all twelve months of kits - and I've already stitched half
of them. When they're all stitched, then the sewing will commence.
As a little "thank you" from Shabby Fabrics, there was a little
bluebird pin included with this last kit. It's from Kathy Schmitz
and looks just like the little bird in the "Bluebird Nest" kit! I
added it to my guild ID quilt pin. It fits right in with my others.
I'm going to see my Coffee Club girlfriends this morning.
I'm looking forward to it, as always. They're always a good time!
Have a great Saturday.
I'll be back tomorrow with my Sunday Scripture.

When I got to our guild Christmas party on Tuesday night, my friend,
Linda S., handed me a little plastic bag with these items inside. She said,
"These were all of Flo's needles and a couple of thimbles. You were the
first person I thought of when I saw them, so I'd like you to have them."
I was humbled. I opened the package to look at the needles. There were
lots of loose ones that were separated into other ziplocs labeled by size.
When I got home, I put those loose needles into three of my wooden
needlecases to keep them organized. Then I took a closer look at the thimbles.
I've never seen a thimble like this one. It's sort of rubbery and one
could see that Flo had used it a lot. I cleaned it up and then tried it on.
A perfect fit! I sort of felt like Cinderella at the ball. I'll definitely
wear it when I stitch and I'll imagine our dear friend close to me.
Thank you again, Linda, for gifting me with Flo's tiny treasures.
Each stitch I take with them will be in Flo's memory.
