Celebration Startitis

Hi Blogger Friends.  Thank you all for the birthday wishes.  I swear I'm going to reply to all your comments for the last month.  My arm decided to get another infection.  Hard to do anything when your laying in bed.

The 12th was my 22nd anniversary.  What a wonderful man.  I know in my heart that he was sent to me.  I truly believe if not for him, I wouldn't be here today.  The 14th was my Medi Care birthday.  I had told Debbie about a month ago as to what I wanted to do to celebrate.  We were talking on the phone and she just started laughing.  We must have been on the phone for at least 3 hours and she would just start laughing again and call me silly names.  I thought maybe she was right and I wasn't going to do it.  In light of what happened, I decided to go ahead with it.  I'm so glad I did.  Every one that I started made me think of that phone conversation and put a smile on my face.  This is part one.  I started these in 5 days.

Boo Club - Lizzie Kate





Christmas Blessings - Lizzie Kate




 Flip-It Stamp - Lizzie Kate





I'm a weiner.  I won Angela's - Hooked on Stitches 6th Blogoversary giveaway.  Look what she made just for big ole me.   This is actually a box.  My very first box and I love it.
And this adorable ornament.  Her stitching and finishing are absolutely stunning.
And these dishclothes.  You can never have enough of these.
Thank you again Angela.  These are so special.

Thanks for looking.   Linda

On a side note: I have to crochet a baby blanket in TWO days.  Wish me luck.

Yay for new starts! I just settled on my Debbie's UCJC pieces, but of course looking through my stash made me want to start a lot more than 31! Maybe I'll have an equinoctial start celebration - happy birthday, by the way!
