a nice surprise

Progress is fast and furious on this piece! :-) I love it when projects just move along. Thanks to everyone for your kind words that you have been leaving for me. I love to read them. I promise Patti to send you some fairies as soon as I find some that want to fly over the pond. ;-)

I had a package waiting for me when I got home from work yesterday. I wasn't expecting anything so I was quite excited at the unexpected surprise. Tracy of Ink Circles (one of my designing heroes) attended a fund drive at her local animal shelter and purchased this cute calendar for me! How nice is that? It just so happens that last Christmas no one gave me one - usually I get a couple - so I still needed one. Thanks so much Tracy! In her note she said mine are cuter. And I totally agree. :-)

Wow, you are truckin' right along on this, Margie! I loooooove this design; I think it's my favorite BBD release for 2009, at least so far! ;)

I have to agree that your pugs are just way too cute!! I love visiting and seeing the posts with their pictures. And you are making great progress on Simple Things, I just love the colors on this sampler!

Love your progress on this...it's just gorgeous! I agree, it doesn't need to chain stitching around it to "make it", it's going to be perfect just like you've stitched it!

And yes, your puggies are waaaay cuter than the calendar pug, but it sure was a sweet gesture from your friend :-)
