The Weekend....

arrived yesterday. I was more than ready for it! I did a bit of housework and then my husband and I zoomed down to Occoquan - the quaint little town near me that I love to go. I visited a few of my favorite shops - picked up some cute little items to decorate some areas around my house - partook of the yummy goodies at the shops that were having open houses - looked at all the fun new spring items...

Then we went over to In Stitches - the needlework shop that always grabs tons of my money! I was so blessed to be able to find three charts by Primitive Needle. As many of you know, Lisa - the designer for Primitive Needle was swept away in the flood waters on March 1st. I'm sending her family all my thoughts and prayers as they go through this devastating loss. I opened the packages last night when I got home and thought about her hands folding the charts and slipping them inside..... I started stitching on them right away and cannot wait to have them on my wall. Every time I look at them, I will think of her. I did not know her personally, but from what I've heard and read, she was a lovely person who loved her family and doggies dearly and enjoyed life to the fullest.
Something we should all remember to do - every day....

Linda - I am so glad you are going to stitch these her charts. Wasn't that such sad news? It sounds like you had a wonderful day at your favorite little town!

What a sweet post, Linda. Lisa was a wonderful woman and my heart aches for the family and pups that she loved so much.
