Doris surprised me with a wonderful gift. She gave me three tins to use for needlecases and also this wonderful needlecase that she stitched. It is so pretty and lined with blue silk. I wanted to share some photos of it with you. Her blog is located at http://2miaou.over-blog.com/ . I got to see her Beatrix Potter Quaker sampler finished and back from the framers. It was stitched over one and very pretty.

Meeting up with a French blogger...
It is such a special feeling when things come full circle in life. We had things ready to go on vacation and I had posted on my blogs that I would be taking a week's break. I happened to look at the comments later on Friday evening and there was a message there from Doris, one of the French bloggers. She lives in the Alsace and asked us to contact her hoping we could meet while we were there. We exchanged our cell phone numbers and called her as soon as we arrived in France. A meeting was arranged in Colmar on Wednesday. We really enjoyed spending the afternoon with Doris. She showed us a bit of Colmar and then we had tea and some wonderful pastries in a little shop. She then took me to visit two of her local stitching shops. I did buy some stash which I will share with you at another time.
