I got mail....

Can you believe it is November?!? Today is November 1st; All Saints Day..... growing up Catholic and Italian, it was a day of going to church to pray to the Saints and honor them. As children it was also the day after getting lots of candy while trick or treating! No, this will not be a lecture on the subject, but  just one of those dates/days that we remember even if we do not attend church. What I will be doing today is going to work.... Saturday is a busy day for Jo Ann's. Everyone is trying to use their coupons before they expire and get what they need for the weekend crafting....some will still come back on Sunday to buy with the new coupons..a circle of busy. I will be one of the people who buy what I need for the next 2 days which I have off....and of course there is always something I need! Yesterday the mail delivery was for me...and only me....I could only see the envelope marked with my name and that of Cathy from I Love to Stitch. What a lovely package...
she was my partner for the RR. Cathy stitched a beautiful flower design and included something from my Wish List.... a Just Nan mouse kit and even included a piece of fabric. What a wonderful mail delivery. We both love to make bracelets and she included some pretty pearls....thank you Cathy. If you want to see what I sent to her, visit her blog (click on the red link above). I am thinking this piece would be a beautiful pillow...
I think there are only a couple more exchanges for this RR that June from Butterfly Wings organized. Not sure if she is planning another. If you are interested, be sure to follow her blog so you will know. Well, my friends, it is time for me to have a cup of coffee, my second one! and something to eat...my stomach is hungry. Glad we could spend some time together, and I thank you for the kind words and friendship. Have a wonderful day.

Gracie: I am so happy tou like what I sent, I had a tough time trying to get it finished on time, I work on the road five days a week and sat. is clean house and catch up day.
I love stitching for others.
The mouse is such s cutie, I need to put mine together, it is already stitched.
Growing up Catholic and learning about Saints was a treat for me, such brave and beautiful lives.
We have about 20 books on Saints, I read them every once and a while.

Hugs
Catherine

I just love receiving post like that, mine is usually international which somehow makes it even more exciting!

The stitching really is beautiful. Looking forward to seeing the little mousie stitched up too. They are so cute.
