This is the Punchneedle I finished this past week. I had it all finished and I thought it needed a little something something. So, I added the rope trim. I think that finished it off. It's a pattern by With Thy Needle & Thread - Cupid's Arrow. I love my little Love Birds above!  it was a gift from Terri - Dixie Samplar last year.
Speaking of Terri... I met up with her and Joyce this weekend. We made a trip to our local cross stitch shops, They are about 2 hours from me and 5 or more hours from Terri and Joyce. We had a great time.  I had made a couple of goodies for them.

We had a great time! Went to North Alabama on a road trip. We did some serious cross stitch shopping. I had just bought a bunch of patterns online, so I went a little easy.. This is my new stash.

I got some great charts from Nan and Sandra. Cocoa Linen and some great wool for future projects. I didn't forget the floss. lol

Terri and Joyce, each had a surprise for me! I love my stitcher friends!!!

 Box was from Joyce!  Cute needlecase! Spring flag and goodies to eat!  I love the BBD chart Their Song!  I didn't have it.

Terri gave me these beautiful silks and the cute pattern to stitch!  I love the feel of the silks!   Thanks to both of you! I so enjoyed my day out with you both! I just know I talked their ears off!! lol
Then I checked the mail today and guess what? Another package!!! This one is from Parsley!

 So many goodies!!! Love the sugar free candies, tea, floss, trim and card!  But looks at these two!!

 Beautiful necklace she had commissioned for me! Has the word Stitch and a rose charm for friendship, needle charm and scissor charm!  Just beautiful! I will always treasure!

She stitched this beautiful Be Mine. Isn't it just beautiful!  I have it displayed where I can sit and look at it!  Thank you so much Parsley!!!
