Hiram is off the hoop...

Hiram is off the hoop and getting ready to be completed!! He is a big ole cat. I had such fun punching this one, except when my neck would flair up. The background is very large and took 16 skeins of floss!! I think he has personality. Hopefully he will be done by this weekend, but with the Rug Fest on Sat. it may be the first of the week.

Today is the anniversary of Millstone Mercantile. One year ago today we opened our doors. We have met some wonderful new friends and had so much fun, I am so looking forward to many more years. I want to thank everyone for their help and support, without you it would not have been possible.

Today is also the anniversary of a friend of mine....Jane... Happy anniversary to you and Steve and I hope your dinner goes as planned, have a wonderful time with your family!!! (At least it's not raining!!!)

Date night was the hunt continues, but we got some really nice old crocks, which I collect, and just some "stuff".

Our first day of Spring was could almost hear the flowers singing and see the grass growing....yep broke out the lawn mower and mowed and mulched the beds at the shop. Looks great. We even planted some flowers...hope we do not have any late snow!! Well, I am off to the shop...but first to go and pick up a cake for our anniversary. If you are in the area please stop by for a piece. Again, a very big THANK YOU FOR YOUR LOVE AND SUPPORT.

Have a beautiful day!!!
