First Project for 2009

Violets closeupYes, it is finally completed…my violets needlework for my sister-in-law. It will take a special mat and frame to truly make it lovely. As I mentioned before, my late mother-in-law’s name was Violet. This gift is for her daughter who is still having a hard time with Mom’s passing. I hope it will make her smile.Violets Completed

misssaigonIt’s been done for a while, but since I’ve been home from vacation I’ve had a bad cold and been catching up with work at the office. Oh well. I did get a bit of fun in this week however. I was able to have dinner one evening with two of my good friends, Joan and Pat. After dinner we saw the play “Miss Saigon” at Drury Lane Theatre in Oak Brook. The music was phenomenal, the voices were stupendous, and the sound and light effects were out of this world. I am so thrilled I was able to have this opportunity. I love plays. But back to reality. And back to work on my projects for my Pay It Forward surprises.
