Time to represent

Hello friends! What a wonderful week I've had. It started with a fabulous Mothers Day in Georgia with my son and husband, and that just set the stage for a terrific seven days. And do you know what happens when I have such good vibes? Yes. My mind starts to wander to silly things.

One of the silly things that caught my eye recently was the whole Ryan Gosling "Hey Girl" thing. One day I ran across some pictures (damn you, Pinterest!) and I giggled myself silly. But it seemed that every interest except stitching was represented in a Hey Girl photo. Jeez, there were Hey Girls for crafters, quilters, knitters, bloggers, librarians, Hunger Games fans...but NO stitchers.  That's just wrong. So I got to thinking, what would a stitcher want Ryan Gosling to say to her? I was coming up kind of blank.

But then this weekend I got together with a couple of groups of stitching friends and decided to listen to their conversations and see if I could figure out what was really important to us. What could RG say that would endear him to us because we'd realize that he totally understood us? And what's more sexy than knowing that someone gets you?  Of course, it always helps if he's hot....

So here are my Stitcher's Hey Girl photos.  Oh - - and Hey Girls, I totally pilfered your conversations for these captions.  I'll just say Thanks.
