I so forgot to write in my last post that I received a beautiful RAK from my long time on-line friend Alba Perra (no blog). She lives in Bologna, Italy and while I have never met her in person I have known her for many, many years; probably more than 15.

Last week I received an email from HaED that said I have received a gift from her! I was very excited and rushed off to see what the chart was. The chart is called Wonders of Chicago and I absolutely LOVE it!

Some of my favorite places in Chicago are featured here; Buckingham FountainThe Field MuseumThe Sears (now Willis) TowerThe Chicago Water Towerdowntown Chicago and The Shedd Aquarium.

This piece will be a wonderful remembrance for our family since we have moved from Chicago to Tucson! Now to just clear some of that stuff out of my WIP box and get this started!

Thank you Alba!
I will also think of you every time I see this piece! 

Thanks for stopping by,
see ya next time!

Beautiful chart Faith. I so wish I was brave enough to stitch HAED's.

Wow that is such an awesome RAK. She obviously knows you very well and knows your heart. That will be a beautiful stitch. I love RAK's as you do think of the awesome and generous person that sent it to you. Enjoy stitching it and we will enjoy seeing your progress
