Time Marches On...

Look what I got in the mail on Saturday!
Anna made this for me...
a little stitchery made into a pillow
in remembrance of Charley.
Isn't that the sweetest!
Anna is a dear friend that moved far away,
but we are able to stay in close touch because we rock the internet!
I know you are waiting to see the March fragments
that Virginia and I exchanged.....
First up is the piece she made for me...... so sweet ....
What you really need to remember about Virginia
is she never just makes one.
She makes one for me and one for herself.
I do well to make one of anything.... below is what I made for her.
I saw it here!

How sweet of Anna and what a good idea! It's darling. I'll just add a comment about my stitching piece. I went to an awesome store in Houston called High Fashion Home where I helped myself to their fabric swatches and helped myself to their fabric swatches and helped myself to their fabric swatches (!!!). It was so much fun and those swatches looked like a bunch of flowers to me...that's where the inspiration for my little stitching came from. Moral of the story: help yourself. And don't you love Linda's hyacinth...I do and it's mine!! VB
