CELEBRATING OUR 150th READER GIVEAWAY

About Me

My photo
I have collected incredible amounts of cross stitch magazines in my over 30+ years of cross stitching. I enjoy knitting, crocheting and cross stitch. In May 2011 I decided to make my dream of sharing my love of needlecrafts a reality and started the online shop, The Stitcher's Market along with hubby. My biggest hope is to pass on my love of stitching to my children. Let's face it, some one has to inherit all my stash. I am shy, but I truly appreciate everyone's comments and friendship. I am glad to help anyone who needs any stitching information. I love to have giveaways and share other bloggers giveaways, so please stop by often. Enjoy your stay!

Thank You Penpal!!

The postie brought my last letter from my penpal yesterday. Hubby brought the package to me at work. (He's a keeper). Anywhoooo... I couldn't wait to open it because I knew that there would be a letter inside from my penpal and I would finally know who had sent me my favorite Weeks Dye Works thread colors. She had also sent a large envelope with a very hard item inside which I thought was either a book or a frame. Hmmm....I was getting even more curious.

I have to say that even though I LOVE cross stitch, I was secretly hoping that it wasn't cross stitch related because I was caught in a weird S.A.B.L.E. moment and I wanted something i could share with the kids. She must have known because inside was a wonderful letter letting me know that her grandson was born healthy. Along with that was a beautiful book, The Tale of the Three Trees retold by Angela Elwell Hunt and illustrated by Tim Jonke. She also sent me 4 gorgeous blank cards.

I wanted to say THANK YOU for the most lovely gift. I read and re-read the book with tears in my eyes. The true meaning of Christmas. I will read the book to my children at Christmas, it is truly lovely.

All in all, I am very happy to have met such a nice and thoughtful person in my penpal and will continue to keep that relationship alive.

I feel blessed....blessings to all.....
