HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO ME
What a great day today is. I am just taking it easy and plan on getting lots of stitching in. Still have my ornies to make so that will keep me busy the remainder of the day. My husband and children all wanted us to do something like go out to supper but not me, I said the best gift is to let me have some ME time. All alone, with tv on and needle in hand. Thats my idea of a nice birthday.
Yesterday, I went on my yearly birthday shopping day with my friend Marie. I wrote about this before,her birthday is on the 2nd so we go together out to eat and do some Christmas shopping and lots of catching up with each others lives. We have been doing it for years and its always lots of fun. We went yesterday to the Yankee Candle Factory in Deerfield, Massachusetts and had the greatest time. It was so pretty. Decorated like a winter wonderland. I found a couple lovely gifts there for my family and something for me as well. The day went so fast and we didn't get to go to all the places we wanted to so we have decided to meet next Friday again and have another day together if we can both get away from lifes duties.
Today I received the most lovely package from Anna ( http://annas-this-and-that.blogspot.com/) A wonderful birthday gift, a Little House chart that I love. So pretty and I can't wait to stitch it. Then she made me something so lovely, for a PIF gift. What a treat. I have never seen anything like this before and Anna you did such a lovely job on it. I will treasure it always. Here is a picture of it.
Oops forgot to take a picture of my chart, will do that later. Thank you again Anna. Sending you lots of hugs.
