Birthday Time!

Happy Birthday to Me! I am 52 years young today. At work today they surprised me with lunch, cake, and flowers. Then my manager surprised me with a $200 bonus check. Also, my MIL sent me a check for $150 and my mom sent me another $50. You know what all that means don't you? Stash enhancement!!!!! My middle sister is taking me out to lunch Saturday and then we are going shopping. WooHoo!

I also ordered a new pattern as part of the HAED Birthday Club. I chose a new one that just came out today. It's called The Summons and you can see it here. I think it's just adorable.

Now on to the stitching. I pulled out Contemplating the System as my HAED rotation piece this month. Here is where I started on this past Sunday.


Here is where I was yesterday. I got a lot done, but I was home sick for two days, so I think that is why I got so much stitching done.

With any luck I should have this page done this weekend. They are calling for snow to start tonight so I guess I'll be forced to stay in and stitch. Such is the burden we must bear in the winter months. He He.

Happy stitching everyone.
