Happy Friday ...

and Happy Birthday to me *smile* .. 54 years ago this was me and my mom (I was about a week old in this picture) .. and yes I was born with a full head of hair! lol


I think this picture is of my 2nd birthday .. I just love old photos :)



The family is taking me out to dinner at the Outback tonight .. sure hope I can taste the food! I'm really looking forward to a blooming onion! lol My cold is starting to get better .. finally slept through the night last night.

In honor of my birthday I would like do a Pay It Forward .. here's how it works ...
the first 6 people that e-mail me (michele11wa@yahoo.com) or indicate interest in my PIF challenge, will get something made by me in the next 365 days (this challenge will have a deadline of Dec. 31, 2008). In turn you must post to your blog the same challenge and accept 6 people to send a PIF to...they do it to their blog and so on....sound good?

Looks like my weekend will be full of football and stitching and putting away the rest of Christmas. Most of it was put away last week, the reindeer still need to be put away and there's odds and ends all over the house that need to be scooped up and put away until next year.

Anyone watching the football playoffs?? What team(s) are you routing for?? We of course are all excited about watching the Seahawks kick some major Green Bay butts on Saturday ...



Thanks for all the lovely comments about my 1st finish of 2008 .. and nice to see some new ladies commenting too. Hope everyone has a wonderful weekend!

I'm grateful for birthdays ...

Happy Birthday, hope you had a wonderful time out and the rest of your day was great too. Glad to hear that you're feeling better as well.

Loved your earlier finishes, so cute. Especially Morning Without Coffee, that one is so perfect. I've now got that printed off and added to my stash, thanks for the link.

Michele,
HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO YOU!! I hope you have a wonderful night out with your family.

Guess what, Go Seahawks! My hubby is a Seahawk fan (used to live up there) so since our other favorite team (K.C) "sucked" this year, I'll quietly cheer for Seattle.

Have a great weekend!

Happy Birthday! Hope you had a lovely day!

A belated happy birthday from me! Your mother looks soooo young. I love the hair. My babies all had that much when they were born too ... and kept it. Actually, you look amazingly like my kids when they were little.

The PIF sounds like fun, but I wouldn't be game to be part of it. Obligation stitching is the quickest way I know of losing my stitching mojo. I'm pathetic like that. I hope whoever wins really appreciates the time and effort you put into the game.

Happy Birthday!!! Wow, your mom looks so young - and you look so cute. :)
I hope your day was special.

Belated Happy Birthday Michele! I hope the day was very special for you. Oh Outback! Isn't the food wonderful?

I like your stitched coffee design in your last post! The pot looks beautiful stitched in red.

Novice Stitcher said...

Your coffee design will make a perfect first pinkeep. If I can do it, believe me, you can do it!
