43 Today!

Today is my 43rd birthday! Here I am in all my chunky chocolate glory-LOL Makes me sound good enough to eat doesn't it?(That is me on the left just in case you didn't know and my cousin Carolyn on the right) Anyway, nothing too much planned for the day-just a little stitching perhaps and definitely some NCIS. My mom took me to lunch yesterday and to add more to my overall chunkiness I baked myself a red velvet cake for my birthday! It is truly a blessing to be here and have my health, family and friends! My wish for you all on my birthday is to have a wonderful day whatever you may be doing!

A Winner and a WIP!

First, let me say a tremendous THANK YOU to those who have stopped by and wished me Happy Blogaversary! Your kind comments and friendship are appreciated so much! The winner of the giveaway is Barbara of Mainely Stitching ! Congratulations to Barbara!

Now below is my African Beauties, only one more lady to stitch! Yay! I feel that when I do stitch on it that I am doing more reverse stitching than actual productive stitching! I was hoping to have this done this week-but alas I have been reading!

Spring Exchange from Myrna!

Myrna , sent me a fabulous spring exchange package! A Signs of Spring pinkeep by Bent Creek, a spring fob and the neatest lapel pin stitched with hello spring by LK over one thread! She also sent me all the wonderful extras you see in the bottom photo-charts galore, fabric, and candy. She never forgets the kids or the kitties! Thank you so much Myrna! Now onto summer and our last exchange for this group. I will definitely miss being so spoiled. On a funny note, I was joking with my youngest Caleb tonight about how he didn't love me. So he says, "yes I do mommy, I won't put you in a rest home!" Too funny! Nice to know I can count on my baby to take care of his mama!LOL

Thanks for the compliments on my LK finish! They are much appreciated. I hope you all have a great week! I have a three year blogoversary coming up on the 17th and that means a stitchy drawing of some sort!

Happy Easter!

First off I want to wish all you and your loved ones a very blessed Easter! I managed to get in a small finish. Chicky Easter by Lizzie Kate. Done in recommended threads of GAST/WDW and DMC, It was quite quick I must admit even for me-LOL. I am thinking about finishing it into a tiny flat fold. There is nothing much going on here but sleep for me very soon. I have been working this Easter weekend. But, I had a great night last evening as my manager organized a Easter egg hunt for the nursing staff. It was a lot of fun! Amazing how competitive grown women can become over hunting Easter eggs! My manager set it up so that each egg was numbered for a prize. So everyone won! Anyway, I am toddling off to my bed. Have a fantastic day!
