    I’m quivering with anticipation, Joan!!! Looks like it’s a lifetime ahead, I’m eagerly waiting for the BIG DAY!!! WOOOOOOOHOOOOOOOO!!!! I definitely want to have a great time there and forget about all hardships for a day. I’ll come on Sunday, most surely around 11 a.m. Hope for a lot of sunshine!!!! You’ll really enjoy super food and wine there, I’m sure! Just a little question, if you can answer: is that lovely stitching fairy going to be turned as a chart for us?? ๐Ÿ™‚

    Lucky, lucky ladies (and maybe, gents) who get to meet Joan !!! From all who wish we could, please convey the love from the world over, and the joy Joan has given us with every stitch to fabric we make. We wish all of you a safe and gratifying trip to Italy! Our thoughts will be with you.

    You know we all love CROSS STITCH COLLECTION and getting ALL those beautiful charts that Joan designs, (sometimes very difficult to attain here in the states!.) CSC is offering a 20% discount on 6 months or longer, subscriptions. Use BANKH2013 in the coupon voucher area. I consider it the best, and can’t seem to live without it, I happened to just come across this………..good only till tomorrow, 5/27/2013….soo get that magazine without the stress of walking into a Barnes & Noble and not finding our link to Joan!

    Rosemarie – Have you tried yet? They have CSC and they’re WAY cheaper than even 20% off. Plus I like not having to wait to get it. I hate waiting on stash…….. ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Is it just me or does anyone else think that adorable sewing fairy sitting on the moon at the top of the casa cenina post,would be a great cross stitch design.!?
