45 Today!

Today is my 45th birthday! It's a beautiful thing and I am so grateful to be here, to be healthy, to have a wonderful family, a job I really like and so many other things that I am grateful for, that the list would be endless. Thank you Lord for blessing me with these years, I hope to have 45 more!

This picture was taken right before going to a 70's party. My absolutely favorite decade! So I was hoping to achieve sort of a tie dye look. The earrings are huge and almost drove me crazy. They say "Nappy Goddess" on them, which I find hilarious! All I am missing is my afro!

Anyway, my wish today is for everyone to have their dreams to come true and be blessed in everything they do!

Stash from France...

I found these two lovely African patterns from an online French cross stitch store called De Fil en Idees . They are by French designer Isabelle Vautier. She has done a series of five, I have yet to get the other 3. However, they are on my list to get because I am always trying to find ethnic patterns and I have found that the overseas designers tend to do more in that aspect. I have kitted these up, they are both done in DMC threads with some metallic accent. I have tentatively decided to do PTP fabric. I have no idea when I will start these as you can see by my previous post the project ADD continues. I think these are pretty cool. Now off to work on Magic Garden sampler, hoping you have a beautiful Sunday whatever you may be doing!
