And another talented stitching friend!

This beautiful stitching box with accessories was a gift from one of the sweetest women I know. Sue is one of my Kansas girls and she has a wonderful talent for looking at a design and conceptualizing its finish in a unique way.  Lucky, lucky me that I've been the recipient of some of her ideas!

Love the flowers!  A perfect choice for flowers blooming in early spring.

The goodies inside.

A close-up to show you her perfect stitches, cording and the added touch of counting pins.

I've already thanked her personally, but now I'll do it publicly. Thank you so much, Sue!

As for my own stitching, I'm working on La D Da's ABCD, and it's almost finished.  I should have a picture soon.

In other things, I've been watching way too much TV lately.  Dave and I became hooked on AMC's show, The Killing.  I think we've almost caught up to where the series is now.  Do any of you like that show, too?  It's dark, but it really draws me in.  And it's made me think that I'd never want to live in Seattle.  Does it really rain like that every single day?  Yikes.  I thought western Pennsylvania was dreary, but the show makes Seattle seem like a vacation spot for vampires because there is no fear of ever seeing the sun. 

Now I'm off to start my day....


  1. WE are hooked on the Killing too and yes to your thoughts on it! I love the box and it is finished wonderfully. What a treasure

  2. Hello

    I've never commented on your blog before but just wanted to say I think that stitched piece is beautiful.

  3. The box is stunning. How nice of your friend to make it for you!

    I've never seen The Killing. We got rid of cable about two and a half years ago. I don't usually miss it, but sometimes I think I might be missing out on some great TV shows. :(

  4. That box is really beautiful!!

  5. Gorgeous giftie from Sue! I've never seen that tv show before but I love Seattle! I am trying to figure out how to get back there at some point this year.

  6. I love The Killing , and very excited that season 2 is about to start over here next week. Can't wait!

  7. What a beautiful girl, Lee. :D

  8. I watched the original Danish "The Killing" and was completely hooked and am patiently waiting the third series. They did show the Seattle version here but I just couldn't get into it.

  9. What a beautiful gift!
    I'm enjoying watching The Killing too! It does look pretty dreary and cold there.

  10. Fabulous gift ~ I'm sure your smile was ear to ear!

  11. That Sue is a jewel, isn't she? She always has such beautiful finishes! Happy birthday!
