Happy Birthday to me!!!

Monday was my birthday .... 56! I started celebrating last weekend and am celebrating all week long! lol. Saturday the kids took me to see Avatar and then we went dinner. Avatar was incredible ... all the colors and the animals and plants were so imaginative. Monday I didn't have to cook dinner ... woo hoo!!!! lol My treat to myself for my birthday week is starting a new project. I started Primitive Wizard of Oz by Midsummer Night Designs and oh my gosh I'm having fun with it ... I adore the yellow brick road!

I was looking at pictures over the weekend, feeling kinda nostalgic, and found these ... don't you love looking back *smile I think I was about a year in this picture ...

I still have that jewelry box ...
My brother and I ... gotta love that bikini! lol

Back to my birthday ... I recived a pretty bouquet of flowers from Chris and Monica and a pot of spring flowers from my neighbors ... are we all ready for spring??!!
I received a sweet package from Staci ... inside was a lovely piece of Staci-dyed evenweave and new scissors ... I'm so excited to have a piece of Staci's fabric and I can't wait to find something to stitch on it. Thanks so much Staci :)
Now I sit and wait to my birthday stash order to arrive ... can't wait to see what I ordered!! lol

I did finish stitching a few smalls last week ... I love these reindeer. They are freebie design by Sharon ... I still have wreaths to finish around their necks ... I'm going to use beads, but have to find just the right ones ...

staying with the reindeer theme ... here's another one by The Sisterhood ...
and my last finish is Gone Sledding by Tanya (The Sampler Girl) ... looks like I have some real finishing finishing to do!

Thanks everyone for visiting and leaving your comments ... I love hearing from all of you.

I hope you find your Joy in your stitches ...

I'm grateful for old pictures ...
