Gift for Jenna

You might remember the Quaker heart freebie I stitched a while back. Jenna let me know yesterday that it has arrived at her place safely. I finished it into a heart box. This one was the first time I have made a covered box that wasn't in a square shape.



I was a bad girl at my LNS yesterday. :) I currently and running low on fabric so I went in search of fabby. I went there with the intention of buying a fat quarter of 28 or 32 count linen. An hour later I walked out of there with a full yard of 32 count Belfast opalescent raw linen. It was quite pricey but well worth since I love opalescents.:)

Today looks like it will be another busy day for me. I have a PTC with Mr. H about Mac's grades. On top of that today is Mac's 10th birthday! It is hard to believe my baby is 10 years old. That is a decade! It is amazing how fast time goes by. Not only is it his birthday and has a PTC all in one day but his ear infection has returned to top it off. What a day for a kid!

Have a great day!

Last night I started stitching this very design, Dawn! Your box finish was a great idea. :)

Ear infections frequently afflicted me as a child, so I really relate to Mac. Hope it clears up soon!
