Around 12 noon, my front doorbell rang. I am thinking who was at the door, and it was the UPS man. He had a huge box for me from Port Orange, Florida. I knew immediately it was from my friend. He works for a Goodwill store and he came across a pile of cross stitch stash. I was in stash heaven this afternoon. There were patterns, mostly teddy bears and couple Paula Vaughn, and material, a couple good size pieces. However, there was a sweat shirt and a sweater with started patterns. The patterns were not in the box. I have no idea what to do with them. I might try to take out the stitches of one of them but the other is pretty huge and look like it was almost done. I never took out stitching with a waste canvas before. Any hints how to do it will be helpful.
My aunt and uncle from Cape Cod was in Connecticut this past week. They took me out for dinner for my birthday. We went to The Olive Garden. Since I am trying to keep my sugar levels down, I got a diet coke and a water. My aunts order a Raspberry Creme soda which I took a sip, oh my god, it was to die for, but I stayed with my diet soda. They also gave me a $50.00 debit gift card. Do I hear more stash calling to me?
