A Little Progress, Stash and Happy Birthday too ME

Hi Blogger Friends.  My stitching is returning slowing.  I have made some progress.

Halloween House SAL - Ursula Michael

Lady Liberty - Diane Arthurs

April - Prairie Schooler

Cackle - SAL with Debbie - Raise the Roof  (although she has already finished hers)

Bought myself some birthday stash cause you know I really didn't have enough.

The 12th was our 20th wedding anniversary and today is my ?? birthday.  My in-laws are taking us on a 7-day cruise to Mexico aboard Carnival Splendor the first week in October.   (This will be their 29th cruise)  I'm excited because we haven't been on an out of town vacation in 14 years.    But, I think I've watched Titantic too many times.  lol  My philsophy is God didn't make us to fly in the air or float on water and I'm gonna be doin both.  Boats (ship) and planes OH MY!!

I leave you with this awesome birthday card from Jo at Serendiptous Stitching.  Thank you so much Jo.  What a wonderful birthday surprise.  Sassy (I changed her name) is checking it out.

You can click on any pics to enlarge.

Thanks for looking.   Linda

Happy Happy Birthday to YOU! Happy Anniversary! LOVE the choices you've added to your stash. Wow. A cruise gift? Good for you. Have a fantastic time. ps. I have heard of Mexican threads (not DMC) but can't remember if others liked them or not. Just thought I'd informed you now. I do know that in Mexico most the ladies sew beautifully. And you will be fine on planes and boats:) Don't let fear stop you. I bet you will even love the experiences.
love Annette

Happy Birthday, Linda! Wow, all this stash looks gorgeous and I'm sure you could roll in it, lol. Enjoy everything.

Jo who can't think of a clever nickname said...

What a great stash accumulation! I love the Autumn and Winter samplers (and several others too!).
Glad Sassy liked the card.
Don't worry about the ship - I used to insure that one, it's well covered LOL. Carnival Cruise Lines come very well recommended. I don't remember any claims for icebergs in my time.
Have a great time xx
