My Birthday

My birthday was June 10th. I hit the jackpot this year when I joined the I Love Cross Stitch Birthday Club!! Finally others that know how to buy for a stitcher!!

This afghan was crochet by my dear friend Amanda, who is like a mother to me. I will cherish it always!!! She also bought the Paula vaughn book and already had it so I inherited it as well :)

I have been rak'd by Deborah. She is such a dear to think of me. She gave me the Just Cross Stitch Christmas Ornament Preview magazine and a small tea time kit.

Rhonda gave me Cupcakes! Glorious Cupcakes. It was on my wishlist and I can't wait to have time to stitch one!!

Debbie Jo gave me a card she made what was full of good wishes, Bobbie G's Design 'Mom's Shed' and a 14 ct ivory aida.

Debra gave me a crown card--so me :), Country Cottage Needleworks "Pretty In Pink, DMC flosses 3347/963/3716/961/3348, and John James 26 needles.

Ethel gave me a Bucilla kit 'Gardening Duo', DMC Light Effects, Hand dyed Fibers Chestnut/Quern Stones/Liquid Gold, Thread Worx 01005/01128

Kelly gave me Cross My Heart 'Victorian Bellpull', Weeks Dye Works Blue Spruce and Bordeaux and Crescent Colors Cerise. I love Cross My Heart I have another leaflet that I realize I've never made anything out of..I never knew where to find the specialty things needed--do now thanx to all my online friends who enable!!!

Nancy gave me Carries Creations Sage Grass, Dinky Dyes Argyle Cloudy Sky/Dungenong/Cabernet/Raspberry Ripple, and John James 26 needles. I love all the colors! I have tried the needles and wonder how I ever stitch with larger needles. I think I am addicted!!

Shelley gave me a handmade card and floss tag that are the prettiest!!!, photo album, fabric quarter, Victorian Pearls 2 'Sew to Be Seen', Weeks Dye Works Artichoke and Raspberry

Meari gave me a Victorian Rose Sampler, John James 26 needles, DMC Floss Number Stickers, Mill Hill Needle Threader with Cutter, Humor is a Virtue Ornament flier. Hopefully I will learn hardanger easily so I can stitch this ;) I am starting a hardanger class taught be Rene of ILCS on July 1st.

Kim gave me a 123 Stitch Gift Certificate. I still have 2 more gifts to arrive and then I will decide what to get with the certificate.
