A few surprises and a wip

I received a few surprises in the mail this week for my birthday ... Sally sent me this adorable birthday card and two new DMC flosses that smell .. in a good way! lol .. The lavender color smells like, you guessed it, lavender and the pink one smells like roses. I have to find a flower to stitch with these. Too much fun :)

Karen sent me a chart off my wish list .. sorry the flash was on for this picture .. the chart is For Ann: Pinkeep & Scissor Fob by Shakespeare's Peddler. Can't wait to stitch this pretty one :)

And from Cheryl, who is still pregnant, sent me this goodies ... the snowman fabric is sooo cute! and the flosses and beads will definately be put to good use .. and look at the stork scissors with the white bead scissor fob, a girl can never have too many pairs of scissors :)

Thank you all for making my birthday very special :)
I have done a bit of stitching this week .. I'm really close to having this pretty piece all finished. Still need to fill in the leaves, add a couple of legs to the birds and do all the french knots (which I love to do .. really I do! lol) and it should be done .. sorry for the wrinkles, qsnaps do do that :)

Tomorrow, Friday, Lisa and I are taking a day of vacation and going to play. We try to do this for each of our birthdays (her's is in May) .. we have a couple of movies planned and some shopping .. just good girl time.
Thank you all for the emails and comments regarding our loss of Larry and support of Cheryl ... means a lot to me to hear from you. Hope everyone is having a good week.
I'm grateful for this week to be almost over ...

Happy Belated Birthday, and what wonderful goodies you got. Joyful Summer is looking wonderful, you've gotten a lot done. I've been busy lately, and the time I've had I've been working on my Six Bats piece. However, I really need to get back to this one, mine is so close to being done as well.
