Yesterday was the first sewing day for the year with my buddies - Heather, Michelle, and Wendy. It's been about 6 weeks since we last got together and we needed our girlfriend fix pretty bad!
Heather was our host this time, and as always she spoiled us with love, hugs, laughter, and food - as well as something rather cute and special.
She made mice for Wendy, Michelle and I!
There's my little beauty in the middle. Isn't she adorable!? It was love at first sight. I was smitten with her and she was smitten with me.
It seemed 'just right' to have my new friend share everything about the day with me...
Who could resist those darling little whiskers and sparkling eyes?
After long consideration I finally decided on a name for her this morning.
She looks like a Hermoine, she's faithful like a Hermoine, and her eyes lit up when I suggested it to her. She loves her name. We're content.
How very blessed we girls were to be given our very own mice. And to be so spoiled with sparkly drinks, Vietnamese salad, and 'death by chocolate' brownies...
(I got myself in the photo this time - see me hiding behind the camera?)
We didn't take pics of what we were stitching yesterday, but I did manage to grab these snaps of Wendy's completed quilt design. She's been working on this all year, and the final layout is beautiful! If you visit her blog HERE you can read about all the blocks she designed and stitched for her quilt, "A Year Full of Blooms"...
Only two more weeks until our next get together. Hope the time goes fast. The laughter endorphins are on overload when we're together but I think the effect runs out about day 13.
Friendship. It's a wonderful thing.
Tomorrow I'm sharing a very special, freshly stitched, free Elefantz design with you to celebrate the blessing of friends. Drop by, ok?
