Birthday Celebration--Part One

My Birthday is today--March 21st, but the celebrating started about the 3rd of the month with this card from a friend in Aberdeen. I met Bobbie when my hubby and I lived in Aberdeen for 9 months about two years ago. I worked with her and she is the only person I have kept in touch with from there. Now with that being said before I turn a certain age I would start telling people that my birthday was coming about a month before my birthday. So in the short time I have known Bobbie she got the idea of how my birthday went and she sent this card wishing me a Happy Birthday Month. So that started it.

Then my very good friend Lori has been reminding me almost daily that my birthday is coming. Last Wednesday she brought over a birthday cake and pizza to celebrate since she would not be able to celebrate with my today. I didn't get a picture of the cake but it sure was good:)



On Monday I received this wonderful package from Nancy. She is my birthday partner in the Friends through Threads blog. Nancy stitched up this cute bag and pin pillow plus she sent some threads, a couple of charts and the hot pad. Thanks so much Nancy. It was a great surprise package.



My stitching friend Chris sent me this glass cleaning cloth with the sampler design on it and a full punch card from our LNS. So I had some "Mad" money to spend and I did yesterday.


So I ran right to my LNS yesterday and got me this kit from Chessie and Me--Glory House. What was even better I had a 25% off coupon to boot!!!

I also received a gift from Cathy B and I am almost done with the finishing so I will post that tomorrow.

So there is the first installment of my birthday. More to come.

Have a great day:)

Happy Birthday Joan: I would sing but like I tell everyone else, the dogs in the neighborhood would howl in pain and the cops would come a running.
So I will just say it Happy Birthady.
I look forward to seeing you in April it is soon to be here.
