I went to Stitches, and all I got was... August 06 2014, 7 Comments

Hello from the land of Stitches Midwest!

Erin and I have been working on and planning for this for a long time.  We left early yesterday morning with snacks, 80s music trivia and a van loaded to the ceiling with all things yarn.


After driving for seven hours, we arrived at our destination with a few less snacks, a wealth of 80s music trivia facts and a van loaded to the ceiling with all things yarn.

Once we got here, we decided to walk around and check out the convention center.


As you can see, Stitches was ready to welcome us with open arms.

Unbeknownst to us at the time, there was also someone else ready to be welcomed with open arms...

It is my most profound pleasure to introduce another Irish girl - Adriana Rose McFarland, born at 9:45 this morning.

She came into the world a few weeks early, but we don't mind at all.  Momma, Pops and baby are all doing well.  We'd like to thank everyone at Northwest Community Hospital for taking care of them and send lots of well wishes to Erin, Alberto and little baby A!

We'll be working on a blanket for Adriana at our Stitches booth (#901) - stop on by and add a few stitches if you can!
