I love my city. Even though I live 50 miles away, Pittsburgh will always feel like it's my city. It's the place where I grew up. I mean really grew up. The kind of growing up you do when you leave your childhood home.
I love its many neighborhoods. I love its downtown (ahem.....dahntahn). I love its sports teams. I love its libraries, parks, museums, colleges and hospitals. Sure, its winter is long and it always rains on the Three Rivers Arts Festival, but there are days of glorious sunshine, too.
I just wish it had a few cross stitch shops. Then it would be perfect.
Today's stitching that I love comes from Meari, who completed Carol's Mystery Sampler and finished it as a lovely box. (Carol kindly posted a tutorial for the box completion, too) Don't you just love needlework tools? And don't you just love to have a wonderful place to store them? I think this box finish by Meari is wonderful. What showpiece for keeping your favorite things.
