Happy Birthday to ME !!

Today is my 53rd birthday, OMG where have all the years gone. It seems just like yesterday I was graduating from high school and going into the "grown up" world. My Mom was going to take me to see The Holiday, but there was a mix up with the time when I was to meet her after her dental appointment so we didn't make it. She says she'll take me next week. For dinner we had pizza from my favorite place. We always get money for our birthdays and I believe I will be buying the IPod Shuffle, the stores are all sold out now, so will get it in the New Year.

I belong to a Cross Stitching Birthday Club and received the most amazing gifts, from fabric and floss to leaflets and kits. They are all great, but one is calling out to me to stitch right away. It is "I will always be a Wildflower by Sam Sarah. I think I have the perfect fabric and will use DMC, so will be able to get started on it right away.

The ducks at Trout Lake don't seem to mind the ice. First one shows them at a side of the lake where it was starting to melt and the other is in the middle of the lake.

These two pictures show the damage the snow storm caused. There were 6 damaged trees like these ones.
I received some stash this week. I bought some Prairie Schooler little cards on e-Bay. I have already started one. The picture shows the cards I got and two Kelmscott Designs Needle Minders,which I bought from Stitching Bits & Bobs.

Yesterday I was looking at the magazines in our local grocery store and found this Cross Stitch Pattern-a- Day Calendar. Of course I just had to get it, not like I need another calendar around here, but hey some of these patterns are adorable. I know for sure I won't be stitching all of them nor will it be on the day it shows up, but I will do some throughout the year and following years !

Finally I was able to upload the picture. I think I enjoyed stitching this as there is only one color to use and it is a cute pattern.

I ventured out in the snow today. The main roads are good, it was just a matter of getting out of the lane, which was not too bad. My Mom and I went to the library, she got a couple of books, not sure which ones and I got Before Sunrise by Diana Palmer and Crewel Yule by Monica Ferris. I have never read/heard anything by Diana Palmer so am taking a chance. I have heard good things about Monica Ferris books, and since they are about our favorite craft it should be good. We then went to Tim Horton's for lunch. After that we went to Chapters and the mall and picked up a few gifts. Then we went to see The Nativity. It is a nicely done movie and reminds you of what Christmas is really about.

On a stitching note, I got Christmas Motif Sampler II by JBW Designs done. The picture does not do it justice. Well it seems I can't upload a picture, I'll try tomorrow.
