Birthday Post - Long

Today is my birthday and I've and I've had a nice day. I took the day off work and have just spent the day relaxing. DH is taking me out to dinner tonight and we are going to the Casino tomorrow. We would have gone today but, DH couldn't get the day off work.

But before i get to my birthday it was Jamies birthday yesterday and I made her a Pisces needlebook that she got yesterday. So now I can share a picture of it with all of you.

Firs I want to thank Mary, Missy, Anne and Dawn for the E-cards they sent to me. Missy also sent me a Gift Certificate to Down Sunshine Lane that I used to get a biscornu kit from The Cat's Whiskers. Mary is sending me the Enchanted Fairy pattern.

The first gift I opened was from Cathy. It was from the Stitching Bloggers Birthday/Christmas Club Exchange. She sent me the Britty Kitty VI Patterns, a project holder, 4 Crescent Colors skeins of floss and a Beatuiful pin keeper. Thanks so much Cathy!

I got these GAST flosses and floss holder from Michelle. Michelle. Your are right the colors of the flosses are bright!

From Carol. I got Family Medley by Heart in Hand off my wish list a new pair of scissors and the most beautiful needle book. I've scanned it open for everyone to see it and what it says. Thanks so much Carol your work is just beautiful and it means so much to me to get something from you.

Julie sent me the same Heart in Hand pattern as Carol. You both have great tastes in pattens to both pick it out for me. :) *hugs to you both*
Here is what was inside the pretty blue package from Annmaire. I have to say I'm as green as the frog on the fob that she made for me. Annmaire does the most perfect french knots I've EVER seen! :) I think I'm going to send all my pieces that need french knots in them over to her to do for me from now on. :) I scanned both sides of the fob for everyone to see. I already have some ideas of what I'm going to do with the floss and the beads.

Then I got this hand made Card from Chiari. I just love ladybugs and it made me smile to see the little one you added onto the card.

And last but not least. Here is what I got from my DH today. 3 books and a DVD. Now all you HP fans don't freak out. ..that is not "THE" book 7 it's just a book that recaps all 7 books and gives some ideas of what might happen in book 7 (I think I"ll pass on that part. I"d like to be surprised). Also inside the card are tickets to see Stars on Ice.

So far its been a good day. Thank you again to all my friends for making this such a special day.

Glad you had a good Birthday..

Carol said...

So glad you had a nice birthday! I knew your stitching friends and Paul would not let you down - how was the casino? Which did you go to? Next time, Mike and I would LOVE to meet up with you there!!!! Also glad you like your gifts - I was hoping you would!! The verse on the needlebook is not only Irish (I know you love Irish stuff) but oh so appropriate to keeping you cheered up! Lucky you, two copies of Family Medley - good for re-gifting - LOL!!!

I'm sorry I missed your Birthday (I've lost your address :( ) My parents were here for the week and I didn't get any PC time at all.

It looks like you had a fantastic time opening all your gifts.
