The 49th Year Begins....

From my friend Jody! A handmade card, the best kind. She included 5 gorgeous shades of orange/red embroidery threads and beads to feed my creative soul!
49 today! I know it's a cliche, but where have the years gone? My daughter is 27, my son 21. I do know there is much more for me to do in the next 49 years!
I participated in a CQ Embellishment swap. Birthdays. It began last April so I was the final person in the year long swap to get to revel in tactile heaven! I am overjoyed at the abundance and variety of goods I now have to entertain creative endeavors. Fiona was playful kitty, sneaking off with ribbons and cords as I piled them up!
Meeting up with sister and the kids tomorrow for fish fry...and my only birthday request....Irish Soda Bread! MMmmm. Want it.
Gorgeous, sunny day. Needing Spring.

I have learned:
  1. STITCH magazine out.
  2. Made it through the encapsulating MRI today. Now free up my frozen shoulder!
  3. American Idol. Kind of droll, but plan to see it through. No more Lily Scott or Alex Lambert. Liked them both. My allegiance aligned with Siobahn Magnus now. She's interesting.
  4. Joggles is a really cool site. Lots of stuff to buy and classes too. I signed on for Sumptuous Surfaces with Sharon Boggon. It is contemporary embroidery. Exciting!

Happy Belated Birthday wishes Kathi!
I hope you get your soda bread tonight, and enjoy the time with your family.
May all your wishes and dreams continue to come true for you!

Happy birthday Kathi, hope they sort you out with the MRI, I had cat scans, MRI & lumbar punctures etc in November and I think I am seeing the benefit. Hope you do to!
