Many, many thanks for all the wonderful birthday wishes. I had a great day. Lunch out with the work gang, dinner & cake with the family and more cake with my stitch gals at A&T!
Dinner was Tri-tip steak with mashed potatoes, green beans and wonderful bread. Dessert was ice cream cake from Dairy Queen (100% ice cream – no cake in this bad boy. And that yummy crunchy chocolate middle!). I’d been drooling over the steak since I bought it on Sat, it was yummy!
So far for birthday stash I got LHN Poinsettia House and Prairie Moon’s Merry Xmas. And just like with Christmas, the festivities are stretched for at least a week as I meet with others in my extended family so more stash could be coming :P
I have a picture to show the tone on tone for Quaker Study (always want to type that as quacker!)
After getting this very small bit stitched, Im even happier with my color choices. Lets hear it for internal arguments! The green-blue heavy over-dye (by that I mean extremely variegated) would have been too over whelming for this fabric. The solid threads do it justice.
Well Im off to roll myself into bed. Hope to get on something of an exercise schedule – next week, after all the cake. I’ll need one then!
