My Sunday Stitchy Update

Happy birthday to me... yippee!!

Today is my birthday and my family helped me celebrate it in an amazing way; though just being surrounded by the three of them is enough for me.

First of all my son Matt bought me a chart from my local LNS (I have a love for bunnies) and gave it to me along with a gift certificate so I can go back and get whatever I need.

My daughter, Tia and grandson, Jacob bought me the following two charts from Northern Expressions Needlework along with all the floss (above - so colorful) needed to stitch them both up! I have really been eyeballing the Twisted Rainbow Sampler - can't wait to start it - just need to search for fabric.
Then they took me out to dinner - my choice Baker's Square (hadn't been there in a long time) and then Cold Stone for dessert YUMMY!

The stitchers in two of my Yahoo Groups have a birthday floss club and these are the cards and skeins of floss I received from them.

And now for the reason you are here...my weekly stitchy update - I have been having a hard time trying to get motivated to stitch but I did get in some stitching on
Stained Glass
finished the black on page 2 and starting to fill in the background.

Thanks for taking a peek at my stitching
see ya next week with another faithful update!

Happy belated birthday, Faith! I'm so glad your family made it special for you:)
Your stitching is looking great. I think there's something about the seasons changing that makes us feel unsettled and less likely to stitch. (for me, anyway)
