Another Heavenly Day

Thank you everyone for your kind birthday wishes - I had a fantastic day. I went to meet Sandy of The Queen's Stitch and we had a great lunch at a place called Pineland and then went back to Sandy's house to stitch. I think I've finally found someone with more stash than me and what incredible stitching Sandy does! I thoroughly enjoyed meeting her and I'm looking forward to getting together again. We're going to plan a trip to Camden to check out the cross stitch shop up there in the fall. Sandy surprised me with a lovely birthday gift - an adorable Lang coffee mug with a cute pup on it, my first Little House Needleworks chart "Dog House Sampler" and the threads and fabric to go with it. I can't wait to start this adorable design. Thank you again Sandy!

Then when I got home, Jo's SBEBB birthday exchange gift was waiting for me and it is just gorgeous. Jo stitched me one of the pocket purses I've admired so much - I think the designer is Hands to Work? It is beautiful and she included a great Quaker note pad, some lovely new WDW floss and a piece of the wonderful Blackbird Designs sampler fabric that I've been trying to find up here.

My friends D&D took me out to dinner for my birthday which was really nice. All in all, it was a stellar start to another year of fun and adventure. Thank you everyone for helping me celebrate!
