I finished Mary around 11:30 last night. I am really happy with how she came out. Amy's stitch guide for the Kelly Clark Nativity Series just gets better and better. Mary's stitch guide was a little more challenging than Kit 1, Baby Jesus. Hair is not my forte but I am happy with the way it came out. My daughter, Jennifer, said her hair is better than mine but my white scarf is better than hers. Joseph arrived early. I was not expecting him until April 1. Am anxious to get him started but I have to stitch the second All That Glitters ornament. Hope to have that done by the middle of the week.
Today Denise and I went to pack up some of the large items in Ashley's dorm room. Of course we went to Rittenhouse Needlepoint. I felt like royalty. I was served tea in a Rittenhouse mug with my own special teapot for my delicious green tea. Denise had coffee in a Rittenhouse mug with a piece of danish. In addition, to our afternoon tea, the store was having two trunk shows.
They must have had every box that HP Designs makes. I never saw so many beautiful boxes. All different sizes and colors. Denise picked up the most exquisite box for one of her canvases.
The color was so beautiful. I am sure that she will be posting a picture of it. Needless to say we had a wonderful day. It is always fun to go visit our friends in other needlepoint stores.
