Happy Birthday to me!
Yes, today is my birthday and this is my 100th post! Which makes me wonder two things...#1 how did I get so old? and #2 how did it take me so long to reach 100 posts. But in honor of my birthday (and 100th post) I wanted to give a present (since I got such awesome ones), so I decided to give away one of my most recent springy charts, your choice. #1 Spring ABC's by Lizzie Kate #2 Peep also by Lizzie Kate or #3 Are you my Mother? by Bent Creek. So leave a comment and I will pick a winner on April 1st.
For my birthday I went on a little shopping spree this morning at my LNS. I was missing a bunch of threads I needed for all my crazy January challenge projects. And the sweetest part is boyfriend said the spree got to be one of my surprise b-day presents. He also took the day off work to spend the afternoon with me digging our new sunflower garden out back, and arrived home last night with a gorgeous strawberry cheesecake from Cheesecake Factory, so I have been well spoiled for my birthday. My big present though I got two weeks ago, which was tickets to go see the musical "Wicked", it was amazing. And for the first time I got to sit on the ground floor of our local auditorium. I have seen other shows there, but always from the cheaper 2nd or even 3rd floor balconies. Now I don't know if I can go back to the cheap seats. It was such a great show, and a wonderful date night for us.
Ok, so enough gushing about sweet boyfriend and back to x-stitch. The above little pillow was just finished this week. It is out of Cross-Stitch and Needlework magazine from May 2009. I picked up the magazine at our local book sale they have at the fairgrounds every February. I go every year, and it is so exciting finding old crafty magazines and books for a dollar each. I always go home with bags full of books.
I hope everyone is as happy as I am on my birthday, and has a wonderful weekend ahead.
