Happy Birthday to me

Yesterday was my 55th birthday. I celebrated by seeing Cirque du Soleil's Saltimbanco with my DS and his wife. It was their gift to me. It was awesome, spectacular, jaw-dropping, amazing, incredible and totally unbelievable. Do you think I enjoyed it!! Unfortunately they do not allow any photography so you will have to settle for my description. You can see a little snippet on Cirque's website. DH stayed home and babysat the grandsons.

I will try to photo some of my work if blogger co-operates tonight.




The left snowflake is from Wren Song Designs - a series of three called Silver Thaw. This is #2. #1 is in an earlier post and identified incorrectly. #3 is done but did not photograph well so will include it in a future post.
The second snowflake is a completion from an earlier post. This one gave me lots of headaches but I am very pleased with the end result.
The third photo is my returned Sweetheart Tree RR piece. I have finished it and am quite pleased with how it turned out. I had originally done the lettering in 778 but it was too light and changed it to 316. I think it shows much better. I need some suggestions from everyone. I would like to add something between the names - either stitched or otherwise - any ideas? I am going to finish it as a bell pull.
Last but not least, is my Dimensions Circle of Love. I am stitching the wreath and will change the saying in the middle. I do not want to say too much about the finished project. It is for a family member and is a surprise.

My suggestion of what to put between the names would be some mill hill heart shaped treasures or flower shaped or stitch rhodes hearts or butterflies in coordinating colors.

Happy Birthday! I'm glad you enjoyed Cirque du Soleil, I've always wanted to see a performance, but so far have only seen one of their IMAX films.

Happy belated! It sure sounds like you had a marvellous time. I've never seen Cirque but hope to someday. All of your stitching looks great. As for the bell pull, I agree with the idea of some Mill Hill treasures. I know they have some small glass treasures that are tulips and butterflies.

Happy Birthday Kathy!!! Everything looks fantastic and your wreath looks very vibrant!

How about stitching a little scroll between each name?
