My husband threw me a party. What a great party it was. My family and friends did their very best to make me feel special. They were successful.
My grandson Hunter thought he should be in the picture with Gramma and Poppa and so - he is LOL.
Here is a quick shot of some of my birthday gifts.
Here are a couple of the gifts closer. From my son Adam and his wife a Kameleon ring - the center stone pops out and can be replaced with many other wonderful colors and styles
From my mother - her family ring - she is getting on in years and wanted to pass it down to me. She chose this occasion to do so. She made me cry.
From my friend Christin - LEFT-Handed Dovos and the beautiful fob with a lighthouse on it.
Joanne sent me this lovely card she stitched. It arrived last week.
Today in the mail came this lovely gift - from the same sweet Joanne.
I feel truly blessed to have such wonderful friends and I am so touched that they gifted me with things that are dear to my heart
Lots of stitching pictures including the stitching I did on vacation.
I did the outside band that you can see on Desert Mandala
I finished LHN - Acorn Hill
I stitched Poppy on Johanna's Mirabilia RR.
I stitched on my Petit Samplings Etui - the lettering is over 1 on 36 count - a challenge for me. The front of the box is almost done. I have a bit of the border to do and a BUNCH of Queen Stitches.
I made this little gift for my BFF Beatrice Her birthday is 4 days before mine.
I made this travel bag for my friend Christin's Ott lite. Her birthday is 3 days before mine.
Ovver the past two days I stitched Holland on Kim's 2012 International Dancer RR.
I chose the Dutch dancers to honor my BFF Beatrice and her mother Adriana who are Dutch. Adriana will be 96 on the 15th of this month and still stitches on 32 count evenweave. She was my stitching teacher and is my mentor.
Here is a photo of Angie, Adriana and I
Whew, I think I am caught up more or less.
I hope you are all having a wonderful stitchy summer even with the terrible heat.
Until next time - stitch frog free!!!
