He's beautifully stitched and finished and matches my house and my tree perfectly. In fact, he may be a permanent fixture on my fireplace once Christmas is over! She had also packed a loaf of Pumpkin Cranberry Bread into the bag and I have to tell you that I started eating it before I took its picture. But picture or not...it was moist and a delicious combination of sweet and spice and tangy.
Then we went to lunch and headed to a shop that has recently relocated to Canonsburg, The French Knot. It was a sweet little shop. Nice fabric and thread selection, but kind of missing the mark when it comes to new charts. I know that stock selection must be tough with such a small shop and maybe we just have different tastes. Regardless, even though the shop may not be perfect, I'll still try to support it. There are some Friday night stitch-ins scheduled there, and I think I'm going to try to get to one later this month. (As much as I love my two college kids, I may need to run away for at least a night while they're home)
After our shop visit, Carol and I drove up the hill a little to Sarris' Candies, and if you're from anywhere near Southwestern PA, you probably know that name. Chocolate, chocolate, and more chocolate, including a visit to the chocolate castle (not my photo, but from the Sarris site)
This week I'm going to visit with Barbara when I pick Colleen up from school. I can't wait to see her Bitter Flower project in person!
I'll tell you...I'm so lucky to have met two such neat women. Now we just need to arrange to get all three of us in one place!
