It's Never Too Late


My birthday may have been last week, but today's mail brought me two more birthday gifts. My goodness, what great timing. With the irritations of living in a reno mess and no trim on my windows as promised, I was badly in need of a lift.

That lift came. Envelope #1 was from Carol who sent me Victoria Sampler's "Thoughts of You" chart and acc pak! What a sweet, generous thing for her to do. One thing I love about this chart is that it includes several smaller projects and the acc pak has enough fiber for them all, small and large. I love it, Carol!


Envelope #2 came from Cathy. She sent me a LHN design called, "Blossoms & Blackbirds" and a beautiful little hardanger heart ornament/fob. I have a pair of special Gingher 4" scissors that has these same shades of pinks and lavenders on the handles that this heart is ideal for.

Thank you so much, dear friends, for these wonderful birthday gifts! Altho they arrived a week late, they were right on time!

Nice birthday gifties! HAPPY Belated BIRTHDAY!!

I understand about your renovation, you and I are singing the same *construction blues*. It's going to be awhile until our job is done now because of all the flooding in the NE.

Keep your chin up, that's what I am telling myself!

Happy 4th of July too!
