Thank you to everyone for your kind comments about Beth. I really appreciate the support that stitchers are so quick to give - in the good times and in the bad.
On Saturday, I picked up a package at the post office which was from Harsha. It is my SBEBB Valentine's Exchange package and I'm determined to wait until the 14th to open it. Do you think I will last? It's such a temptation as it is sitting where I keep my car keys and purse. I pass it coming and going! Ah well, anticipation is part of the pleasure in receiving a gift from another stitcher. I know it will be lovely as Harsha does beautiful work.
I also started a new project on Saturday - my Storey Keeper by Selene Fenech from HAED. I made a fair amount of progress on it over the weekend so I will share it with you tomorrow. For now, here is a picture of the lovely thread keeper Jodi sent me with the threads for my CHS Alphabet piece. It's a bit awkward with the thread tags on it but I was afraid I'd forget which color was which. If anyone has any suggestions as to how it could work better, please let me know! I really love it.
