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:
- STITCH magazine out.
- Made it through the encapsulating MRI today. Now free up my frozen shoulder!
- 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.
- 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!
