Anyway Carmen is so very talented. She invited me to her home and gave me a tour of all her stitched treasures. She has drawers, walls and cabinets full of them! You know I always have the camera in front of my face but I was so busy keeping my chin off the floor that I didn't take one picture. Oh she does beautiful work and she designs too!
Her husband, Danny volunteered to fix Masterchief's truck. The starter gave out on it and by the time he would get home from work he ran out of daylight. We were both left speechless by the kindness of strangers. I mean really..... here he is crawling under the truck getting all nasty greasy for a complete stranger!
We are eternally grateful to Danny for taking the time to help us on his weekend.
After Carmen showed me a few antique shops in the area we all went out for dinner at Carrabba's. Masterchief and I have never been to Carrabba's before and we really liked it.
We almost wish we would be staying in TN a little longer but we will be sure to look them up if we are in the area again.
Here is a pic of all the charts and goodies Carmen gave me. That's right.....she just gave them to me! I am speechless again.......
I feel like anything I put here just won't express enough how thankful we are to Carmen and Danny for helping us out with the truck and for the kindness shown to us. They are both very down to earth kind hearted people who would do anything for you. THANK YOU BOTH!!
Here is a pic of progress on Red Border Study II
I took this picture this morning but have stitched two more rows at the top since then. I really like doing this piece because each row completed results in a mini celebration. I didn't realize how much I had accomplished until I saw the last picture I took of this. Of course I owe it all to Masterchief's starter dying in his truck. He had to use the car to get to work and that left me with lots of stitching time in the hotel room.
Today it took at least 15 minutes to load each picture up so I am calling it quits for now. Masterchief should be here any moment. He messaged me to say he was on his way back to the hotel because they have finished the job. We will be home in a day or two now. We want to take a day to do the tourist thing in Nashville before heading back home.
A big HUGE thank you again to Carmen and Danny for your kindness and new friendship. Words will never express our gratitude. I am also so very inspired from looking at all the samplers on your walls. I can't wait to get home to my stash!
Next time I blog it will be from my old Kentucky home!
