Here are my friends that came every week for a couple of months to our book club. This was our last night. Remember I told you I made them each their own pincushions with names embroidered on them and I would show you? Well I only got a photo of one! Yikes…that’s the story of my life lately. We had a wonderful meal first. I made spaghetti and meatballs and one of the girls brought salad, and another bread with herbal dipping oil, another refreshments, and another a carrot cake from Trader Joes to die for!! We all had a tiny sliver of that for sure. Here are their bags I had ready for them….I made little tags and tied them on with embroidery thread. One of the Mary’s couldn’t make it so I snapped a photo of her pincushion before she came after it and that was the only one I got!
And then…much to my surprise, my friend Natasha, on behalf of all the women, made me an awesome gift and presented it to me!! She is just starting to work with stained glass, creating some beautiful pieces already. She had asked me a while back what my favorite colors were and I told her purples and greens. So….with that in mind, she made me this….
It hangs in that very window behind it in the above photo and looks AWESOME!!
