I think all of you know, I have the most talented daughter, Heidi. She has two blogs you can click on from the side of mine in case you have not visited her. Celebrate the Seasons and Needlenecessities.
There is not anything she can't do with a needle. She taught quilting to some Dutch ladies and they have all become her friends. She now hosts a quilt night at her house every month. I think the last count is 13 ladies. I know them and they are all wonderful people. Some I cannot talk to, since they only speak Dutch, but many do speak English. I look forward to seeing them when I go to Holland.
They have put on two quilt shows and I was able to go to both of them. It is amazing how different the quilts look when they all use the same pattern as the basis.
I would NEVER, and I did say never, would have attempted cross stitching without her support.
She taught George, my husband to cross stitch and he is a perfectionist just like she taught him to be. I asked him questions when I started. It started out as a joke, she was not able to run around one of the times we visited and she thought he would be bored. I said teach him to cross stitch. She said ok and to bring something he would like. We found a 5x7 train kit and it is now framed and hanging. He has several more finished and hanging up. I featured them on a way long ago entry .
Thank you Heidi, for being the wonderful person you are and I couldn't ask for a better daughter. I always call you "My Liddie Grill."
Sooooo, this a my tribute to MISS PICKLE THE ELF, AKA HEIDI LYNN.
My finished Henry the Eighth is featured on my last entry.
