I came home from work a couple of weeks ago to a surprise package from her on my front porch! When I opened it, I was surprised by the number of things she sent me - lots of cross stitch fabric in various sizes and colors + several pattern books. Now, I don't really need any more stitching supplies, but I'm incredibly grateful that she thought to send those my way. (And she paid a fortune for shipping, too!) I feel a bit of pressure to stitch up one of those patterns soon, but I think that's a good kind of pressure. Many thanks to the super sweet Kathryn; you seem to be the most lovely person! I am terribly lucky that my involvement in the ScrapGals podcast and our Facebook community has introduced me to the most wonderful people.
Here are a few other random bits of happiness in my life that I thought I'd share with you today:
The fella and I recently went to a script reading of the play, Dog Meets God which is based on the characters from Charlie Brown when they are teenagers. It was provocative in almost every way, but I enjoyed it immensely. The stage and costuming and set were very bare-bones since it was a scripted reading rather than a true performance, but I have to tell you that it was incredibly powerful. If you are not easily offended by language or culturally explicit references, this is a play you should read or see. I found it especially powerful since I work with teenagers every day. This is a new venture by a local children's theater group geared toward more socially relevant productions, and I can't wait to see what else they produce. If you're local, check out the Gaslight Theater Productions from BG Onstage.
