Thank you so very much for all the lovely birthday wishes. I had a very nice day with Jerry and the boys. My ‘cake’ was a big box of Krispie Kreme doughnuts and my birthday dinner was a big box of Chinese take out. The boys got me a very nice set of Jane Austen books which you can see above, in order of my favorites.
My sweet stitching friends packed my mailbox with wonderful treats today!
From Rachel a beautiful pillow (the fabric is perfect) some wickedly good chocolates and a card to get a little something to wash them down with – Thank you Rachel!!!
From Vonna samples of her favorite floss and needles. I love the color and have immediate use for it as I’m very anxious to get started on LHN’s Home of a Needlework (too!) I’ve never tried these needles before, it will be fun to see how Vonna likes to stitch – Thank you Vonna!
From Joanne a fun package of goodies arrived. Beautiful Civil War repro fabrics, a pretty notepad, yumptous chocolates and some wonderful french soap – Thank you Joanne!
I took myself out shopping with some birthday money today. Unfortunately I had to take Ethan with me who was, well, HORRIBLE! I ended up buying a box of tea at Celestial Seasonings and a skein of silk from my LHN and came home. I’ll try another time. With Jerry in school I have very little time that I can go anywhere alone, I hope that I can find an hour or so next week.
