Beatrice officially retired from her job last week. Of course the Thursday stitchers could not let a significant event like that go unnoticed therefore we decided to celebrate with her.Here is the happy retiree and her Mom Adriana celebrating...the cake says...Congratulations...More time to stitch! You can see where our priorities lie!This happy little snowman comes from a magazine, likely a Stoney Creek one judging from the amount of backstitching on him. In spite of that, he was fun to stitch and I will make a companion towel with a fat little Santa on it as well. Feels good to get some Christmas presents started!
