It is with great sorrow........

That I announce that in a few hours I will be 60


That's right - the grand old age of 60.

And my grandson has informed me that I will be "older than dirt"!!

Am I sad - just a bit.
Am I gonna cry - you bet!
Will I get over it!!! You bet!!!


 I have had the most amazing life. I have the most wonderful family. I love my husband very much.  My two son's have been my greatest joy. I have two sweet DIL's.
My grandchildren are my greatest gift.
I have travelled the world, met the most awesome people and I have stitched and stitched and stitched.

And just in case you think I am too old to learn something new - my son taught me to use his new crossbow last week while at the cottage.




 I was aiming for the center target.

Not bad for an old broad!

LOL well that answered my Facebook question! You could hit the target indeed! You really aren't old if you are trying new things, right?

Wishing you a very happy birthday and many happy returns of the day!

We arrived in The Netherlands yesterday and are now babysitting our beautiful granddaughter while mom & dad are at a wedding.

Happy Birthyday Kathy!!! Many happy returns I know are in your future.

I have to agree with you and everyone else, the most important thing is to keep trying new things and looking forward. With in mind, just think of the millions of stitches ahead of you and all the stash yet to be found!

Hope to see you soon,
Cheers,
