Yes... today is the big birthday day. I love birthdays and savor every minute of the day.
Boyd woke up early to make a birthday cupcake... fat-free and Splenda. Really tasty and made with loving hands. We shared it with cups of tea. A lovely way to start the day!!
What's in the packages?? 2 pair of Birkenstocks... my lifeline to comfort. Brown and light blue (a chambray color). Good timing as we're going to Arizona in another week and it's been 90 degrees in Phoenix. Thanks Boyd-o for everything!
My girls each sent me gift certificates to the Fat Quarters Shop. I can't wait to go browsing and see what's new! Thanks Kristin and Wendy!
We talked for an hour and I enjoyed every minute. She has the most beautiful voice and has almost a British accent mixed with her Dutch. I look forward to a wonderful year ahead with her in my life and all you wonderful, kind, and creative blogging friends.
How easily we can reach around the world for comfort or to celebrate.
Life is wonderful... isn't it?
This book is wonderful... my favorite!
It has so many ideas for whimsical and contemporary crewel work... and it sparked so many new ideas in my head.
I was up until 3am practicing the stitches and getting ideas for projects. It felt so good to hold that wooden hoop in my hand again after so many years. So familiar and comforting... like mashed potatoes.
Love and hugs,
We were going to go to 3 quilt shops out-of-town, but considering it's after 12:30 and I'm in my jams, I think we'll go another day and go see 'American Gangster' with Denzel Washington. Munch popcorn and sip icy sodas.
Sounds good to me!
