Stitchers Are Awesome

My husband came home from Chicago this week with a stitching present for me - only the present wasn't from him, it was from a wonderful woman named Joyce that he worked with. Mark noticed a needlepoint piece hanging on the wall of her office and asked her about it. (I should note here that Mark likes to stitch when he has time, so he had some idea what he was looking at!) Mark and Joyce swapped stitching stories, etc. and Joyce sent Mark home with this pile of goodies.

Two nifty magazines, a Caron Collection leaflet, a Lynne Tomlinson canvaswork design called Hearts n' Flowers (I LOVE Lynne Tomlinson - how did she know??) and the EGA Education Catalog for 2004 - lots of neat stuff to read (and dream!) about. Aren't stitchers the BEST? Unfortunately Joyce doesn't cross stitch. I searched my stash for ANYTHING that she might enjoy and couldn't come up with a single thing.

Thanks Joyce! Maybe we can meet up at Rockome sometime!

maybe .... just maybe you could go thru your stuff ... since she doesn't cross stitch, she might enjoy a sewing small (fob, needlebook, needleroll) or something like that?

That's a great idea!! I'll see what I can come up with. Thanks!!
