A girl always needs needles and thread...and chocolate is just a given!
When I was in Minnesota last summer, we saw this stocking made up at Piecemaker's. It is soooo cute and I had often regretted not buying the pattern. Well, that is now remedied! The wool is not included in the kit, but the flannels for the stocking are, so I should be able to whip this up (haha...famous last words!).
I didn't get pictures of the rest of my gifts, so I will just tell you about some of them. Hubby gave me a Kindle Fire! I'm excited. I already had a Kindle and I read on it every day and have downloaded lots of books - mostly free. I had mentioned at Christmas that I might like to have a Fire, but he didn't think that I needed one! Somewhere along the line, he must have changed his mind. The Fire is awesome, it does everything that my laptop does and will be much easier to take along on my travels. My kids gave me flowers and plants, and some Bath & Body (no excuse to smell bad!). My parents gave me some pretty heart earrings and cold, hard cash for my big upcoming road trip. My brother and family gave me a funny hillbilly card (they make me laugh) and a plant and some Girl Scout cookies. We all got together for supper on Sunday at my favorite Mexican restaurant in Mt. Pleasant. Mom made me a German chocolate cake - she makes the best GCC EVER - so yummy. Oh...and while we were there I had to wear the sombrero and be sung to in Spanish. There should be some good pictures to follow!
I'm off for a sew day - hope your day is great! And...Happy Valentine's Day!!
