Brush with celebrity

Just a quick post today. Part of my Saturday morning ritual is to do the 'Second Glance' puzzle in the Washington Post magazine. If you don't know that puzzle, it consists of a photo and an altered copy of the same photo. You have to spot all the differences between the two. They get the photos to use from reader submissions.
My friends who collect refrigerator magnets submitted a photo that appears in this week's puzzle. If that wasn't surprising enough for me, one of my x-stitch refrigerator magnets is in the photo!

My magnet is the 'READ' one in the upper right corner. I made that years ago when their son (who took the picture) was just learning to read. He's a Jr. in high school now.

Cool, huh?

That's just way too funny! Very cute magnet. I am amazed to see such a large collection of magnets. Wow! And you're 'published' in the Saturday Washington Post - yay! And really nice that someone kept your stitching that long too!
