A good mail day.....

I'm beginning to get some of the patterns I've ordered  and it seemed that they almost all came today.  I love ordering over the internet because if you're like me, I have a horrible short term memory and I forget what I've ordered until I get it.  It's like Christmas!  
This is what I received today:
From left to right:  Patchwork Lady, Hands to Work, My House, Needle Lady Pocket and BBD new design Eleanor Rigby.  The last one I just fell in love with as soon as I saw it.  I'm not sure in what order I'll be stitching these, but I guarantee it will be soon.

I almost forgot to tell you about my surprise.  Over 20 years ago I was working in a local needlework shop called Itch to Stitch.  Well the other day on Facebook this lady named Cathy messaged me and asked me if I use to work there.  Noticing that she lived in Iowa I asked her how she knew about that store and her answer shocked me.  As it turns out we use to work together at this store and got to know one another pretty well.  It also turns out that she is a designer now and the name of her cross stitch designs are "Hands on Designs".  I'm sure that you are familiar with them....I know I am.  It just shocks me some times at how small this world is actually getting because of the internet.  Has anyone else have an instance where you are put back in touch with someone from your past?
Have a Blessed Day, Barbara
