Hey Margaret....

I have a wonderful friend. Her name is Margaret and I first met her on the Legacy bulletin board. Her work is stunning and there is a lot of it. Every piece is just as lovely as the next one. She also does a blog (link on my blog - see right) and it makes me happy every time I read her posts. She is such an enabler....and I love that about her; she is such an encouragement to me. In one of her most recent posts she had pics of Charlotte Clayton framed. JUST BEAUTIFUL. And the big bird is pictured at the top of her blog. So, Sunday night I'm stitching, stitching, stitching. wanting to roll my Charlotte up for the night, but I kept thinking.. just get the big bird done so you can show Margaret... and here it is!!

I've never met Margaret in person or even talked with her on the phone. But, I value our friendship and consider her one of my dearest friends! Thanks Margaret...a friend in stitches.

Cari! Thank you for thinking of me as one of your dearest friends -- I think the same of you! I just love how your Charlotte is coming out! Congrats on finishing the big bird!!! Isn't his tail a doozy? lol! And the parrot on the right is coming too-- he's my favorite parrot. :D Great going! You're zooming along on Charlotte. She's still one of my most favorite pieces. I'm glad that you enjoy my enabling. I love to enable. May I say you're a great enabler as well! :D Hugs, dear friend! Way to go on Charlotte! I'll keep cheering you on!
