Just wanted to take a moment and thank you all for my birthday wishes this week, on Monday I turned 45, ugh. When did this happen? If you can let me know maybe you also have the manual they forgot to give me when I had my kids too, lol. I'm still looking for it.
Anyways, I want to thank you for taking the time to send me personal birthday emails and cards, so very much appreciated, and a few of you snuck in some gifts.
Denise at Riverside Stitching was kind enough to mail a card and thought she was being funny reminding me that I am 9 days older than her, lol, what a pal. Thank you Denise! She lives up the road from me a few hours away as well. We are still working on meeting face to face.
Yesterday a surprise from dearest Shirlee arrived from the Easily Influenced Stitcher, she just lives down the road from me and was one of the first bloggers that I established a friendship with. What a pleasant surprise to open up a Take Along kit from The Trilogy. I can't wait for fall to get here so I can start it.
I picked up my Needleworker by LHN on Tuesday, I love it so much. I hope you do to. My apologies for the horrible reflection.
Of course since I was at the LNS, i couldn't walk out empty handed, so I was delighted that she had the new Scarlett House, She feeds them well, I want to jump right into that. I am so in love with it.
I've also had a relapse in my promise to myself to stop buying stash....I had to, couldn't help myself...ugh, I'm also on the auto ship for LHN mystery sampler that comes out this week to. Catherine at Bramblewood has kindly offered to smack me (at my request) I have also asked her to hold on to my debit card, but i fear i may have to give her my pay pal info as well, perhaps my checkbook and credit cards need to be included?
I treated myself to a new Vera
Wang I mean Bradley, lol, bag, they sent me a 25% off card for my birthday and then I found something on sale so it came to over 75% off by the time I was done. Yay me! did i need another tote, no i did not, but that is beside the point, one needs nice bags to hid their ever growing stash in.
Well here is my progress on Bless this Home and Blackbirds
Some more lilies, they are so beautiful this year...
Lastly a fun frenchie picture...I wish Duncan could do that
Hope everyone has a blessed weekend!
Hugs and stitches
