Happy Birthday to Me and a stitched piece

Yes, all day today has been my birthday. I started it with a good pot of coffee and stitching on a Halloween piece. Then I opened gifts from friends, and what great friends I have. Lynn spoiled me rotten will all kinds of stitching goodies. She's a true stitching friend. Just look what came out my sack. Five charts, a pair of scissors, fabric, cards, pins, buttons, needle minder, a nifty paper cutter, and crocheted dish towel.















My sister gave me a blue bird I admired. Also, my good friend Mary Ann, no blog, fixed me up with some great tasting tea I like, some lavender soap, and body cream. And my secret sister at sorority gave me some toffee, mulling spice,tortilla soup, and other goodies.
And technically not a birthday gift, but it was in today's mail, so I'm a countin' it as a bd gift. One of the first exchanges I ever stitched was for Marie P. We share a love of Community Coffee, so she sent me a collection of the flavored blends and a swatch of coffee themed fabric.
















I don't understand what is happening with this post. It's very untidy, but sometimes Blogger and I don't get along. As soon as I get a snapshot of my stitching finish I'll post it too. Have a great evening.

Here's my very first stitched Stacy Nash design. My birthday gift to myself. I love this design.
