Show & Tell Friday - Link Up!!

Wow. How long has it been since I did a Show & Tell Friday? Way too long. In any case, it's Friday and it's time for a Show & Tell!

Remember I shared that I had gone to the big city at the first of the month? I went to my favorite cross stitch store and just reveled in all the gorgeous things on the walls to look at and all the beautiful things to buy. I tried not to take too long because my hubby and sons were with me, but nevertheless, I still ended up being in there for a couple of hours. lol  Here's a picture of me sitting at the table with all the gorgeous samples behind me.

Now you can see why I was in there so long! That was just a drop in the bucket of all the beautiful samplers and other projects in the store.

This was the first thing that caught my eye and, even after picking out other things, this stayed at the top of my list. It's so unusual and cute! I love unusual things and this fit the bill.

It's a miniature basket with the crockery insert that holds scissors, needles or whatever. Here's the pattern packet that goes with it to give you a better idea of what it looks like.

Isn't that just adorable? It's on my list to do next after I finish my current project.   Next I got this

Love it!! It's a Lizzie Kate pattern (one of my favorite companies) and I love what it says. My final pattern is a cute Christmas ornament from Little House Needleworks (another favorite design company). Isn't this little guy adorable?

Finally, my sweet hubby got me a special present as an early birthday gift. Look at these gorgeous scissors!!

I love scissors and collect them. These are some of the prettiest ones I have and they are even more special because my husband bought them for me. Finally, my youngest son bought me this as an early birthday gift.

I couldn't get a very good picture of it, but trust me, it's amazing. The colors are so neat and look very old fashioned. The poem is about the Lord and that's always something I love. My son actually helped me pick this out, so that makes it even more special.

After we were done at the doctors and our shopping, we went to dinner at our very favorite restaurant of all times, "Black Angus". This restaurant has a special meaning to my hubby and I as we used to go there when we were dating. It's still as wonderful as it's always been. Here's a picture of my hubby in the restaurant,

and my youngest son -

We had a great day and it was such a rare pleasure for all of us to be able to go together out of town like this. It is definitely of my sweetest memories and I'm so glad we were able to do it.
