Monday Meeting - Marlene of Stitchin by the Lake

Good morning staff! Is it me or are Monday's rolling around faster this time of year? Feels like it was August just yesterday! Anyway, on with the meeting.

Today I am delighted to introduce you to my friend, Marlene, of Stitchin by the Lake. As you may have guessed from her blog name, she is a quilter, a stitcher and is one lucky gal that lives on a lake!

Hello! Is this gorgeous or what?! Yep, this is where she lives!!!!

Marlene is just as gorgeous inside and out. She is a very kind and generous lady. She has been working on a list called One Thousand Blessings. In each post she lists things that are blessings to her. I really love these as ya'll know I like to focus on positive and happy things.

Recently, I received a package in the mail. (I do love a package!) Marlene sent me these gorgeous lace doily's and trims. They are French and Swiss and very old. I think it's pretty cool how they are still on the cards that they were sold on. Thanks Marlene! I love them!

Marlene made this cutie for a silent auction at her guild. Fun! My favorite Christmas song is "Have a Holly Jolly Christmas" by Burl Ives. Are ya sing'in it yet??? hee,hee,hee.

And I love this redwork stitchery!

Hop over and visit Marlene at the lake. Tell her Shell and the bunnies said hi!

Have a magical and fun week everyone!
Meeting adjourned.

xx, shell, sugie and harrington
