An Ending to the Birthday Celebrations

Today was the end of my Birthday celebrating (I think). I still have one more order coming that I purchased with my Gift Certificates but the order from 123 Stitch did arrive and I'll share that a little later in this post.

Gift from Nancy la Frog II
In today's mail was a package from Nancy J from my ILCS group. She sent me a really cute card and in the package were these really pretty threads, some cute heart buttons and the best gift a bracelet she made with a really cute frog charm (you may have to biggify the pic to see the bracelet). Thank you so much Nancy J.
From Nancy R.
Today Nancy R and I meet to spend the b-day cash that Tracy gave me for my birthday. We shopped, shopped and shopped some more hehehe. All that shopping made us both hungry so off we went for lunch. Before heading home we went to Michael's where I picked up a few things for my February shelf and tree.
Now on to the stash I got with my Gift Certificates from 123 Stitch








This I will be doing for my DD Manda








This is what I got at the LNS today along with lots of GAST and Crescent Colors to stitch Home of A Needleworker, Flying Monkeys and another Little House pattern in my stash.







And my dear, sweet, loveable DH Tracy spoiled me even more with this.....



We had a shortened Date Night on Friday because I was having problems with my hips and knees earlier in the day. So we decided to just go to dinner, play some pennies in the slots and do some people watching. As we were heading home I spotted this metal lunch box and just fell in love with it. In my mind I could see it filled with stitching stash. There was no price on it so Tracy went to look for the clerk and the next thing I knew it was in a bag in my hot little hands.
This is a birthday year I will never forget thanks to Tracy and all my wonderful stitching friends.
Until Next Time (with a stitchy update).....Have a Great Week with lots of stitching time

Awesome birthday shopping! I love it when a birthday is extended because of GC shopping:) I just got "He's a Flake" in yesterday's mail. I see 2 gorgeous designs I have to get now. The JBW Snowglobe for Connor and LHN Home of the Needleworker. We enable each other too well. Happy Happy Birthday!!

What lovely birthday gifts - I'm so, SO jealous of the Gone with the Wind tin. My favourite movie ever and I'm unable to walk past any memorabilia without seeing if I have enough moolah to take it home with me. :-)

Lyn said...

Kathy said...
