Random Bits this Friday Evening...

This week I have been working on some little odds and ends. I am so bad about putting things off until the last possible second. So needless to say Poot did not receive his Valentine's gift on Valentine's Day. Here is one of his finished gifts:


I still have one more thing for him that I hope to finish before next weekend!

I get to see this face tomorrow!! My dear friend Jessica who I met the very first day of class our freshman year in college. We have been the closest of friends ever since!

I am heading up to Omaha if the weather cooperates (please snow... I have really had enough). We are going to celebrate our birthdays with a girls day!! Here are some of the goodies I have been working on for her: (I don't think she reads this so I hope I am okay with posting them)

An embroidery using on of Elsie's patterns from the RVA coloring book. I am going to have to make one for myself!!

Crochet earrings!!



A mixed cd...in an awesome cover if I do say so myself!

I also received my necklace I ordered from Laura at
Violet Bella!!

(Bad photo! Sorry... I just didn't have enough energy to keep trying. It was a rough day at work)
And she suprised me with a gift of matching earrings! It was so sweet! I love them so much Laura. Thank you! And if we head to Texas this summer we definitely have to meet up.

Well...I am off to cuddle as much as I can with my Poot before I leave in the morning. I already miss him and I am not even gone yet. Yep... I am pathetic! Have a great weekend!
XOXO

That's a lovely stitchery from Where the Wild Things are. Is that the correct title?
Did you get my email for the granny squares info to be sent to?
Have a great weekend with your friend.
