This is a little bit late, and a jumbled up post, but I'm glad to be sharing it with you!
I visited one of my favorite little local shops, "P is for Primitive", located on the Square in Canton, MS. Lisanne has a few antiques in the front of the shop, but the back is primarily for rug hooking supplies. She has gorgeous wools, but there's not much there for me, other than DMC threads! In the front, she also carries sweet little ornaments and seasonal decorations. I went back to get the precious watering cans I talked about in a previous post. They are so cute and are perfect on my Spring tree! Don't you just love the sweet little bead "water drops" that come from the spout?? And I couldn't leave without that darling primitive Spring bunny, which now graces the top of my tree!
Since I last posted, I've been to Memphis again! I found several fun things to purchase, and I just hope I'll get them stitched one day! I love those tart pan stitches from Plum Street Samplers, so I had to buy both of those, plus the pans! I also got some pretty red, white, and blue floss, because I'm itching to stitch some patriotic stuff!
I also attend my annual state music club meeting and this year is was in Columbus, MS. It was a fun time, with wonderful music and great food! I stayed in a B&B, which I haven't done before! It was a fun time and I loved my gorgeous room in this antebellum home, the Cartney-Hunt House. Isn't it beautiful?
I have turned in my last exam and picked up my cap and gown for Friday night! YAY!
Yes, I will have my Masters on Friday night! Hahaha! You're all invited!
When I got home from my lovely trip to Columbus, there was an exciting-looking package waiting for me! I looked at it and ripped it open, all at the same time!!! Inside, I found something nicely wrapped in tissue, and a beautiful envelope! Inside the envelope was a beautiful handmade card from Annette (California Stitcher). Isn't it gorgeous??? I cannot believe that she took the time to make that beautiful card for a "56 year-old graduate"!!!!
Well, then I had to rip open the larger package, and I couldn't believe my eyes!!!! Annette made a fabulous music-themed project bag, just for me!!! I absolutely love it! I am so thrilled and humbled by her kindness! Oh my goodness!!! The fabric is so beautiful and she has a piano charm on the zipper and eighth notes charm where she put my initial!!! I just love it! If that wasn't enough, I unzipped it to look at the lining (which is the beautiful music fabric) and there was more inside!!! She made a sweet matching needle book and I just love it, too! It has a little music charm inside! Then, to top it all off, she included the wonderful Mardi Gras mask chart she had ordered from New Orleans!!!! I am ecstatic!!
I am so touched~thank you, Annette!!! You are so lovely and a precious friend! Thank you again so much!!!
I will post photos from graduation after Friday night. I had portraits done today! Hahaha! I also had my photo made with my piano teacher, and I am pleased to have that! It took 3 years, but the time has really flown by and it's been such a joy!
Thank you for stopping by, and please come back again soon!
