Happy birthday

Hello fellow stitching friends!

Today is my birthday...and I had to share my day with all of you. My family has done a very good job of spoiling me today. After breakfast, presents appeared! My dear hubby did a very good job 'shopping' at Welcome Stitchery last Saturday! He had insight with a wish list from me, but did some selecting on his own as well.

I scored the new releases from Prairie Schooler, as well as Summer Sampler from Little House Needleworks! He added the travel mug and gingher scissors.

Then my son and daughter gave me a new tote bag to use back and forth to work as well as a mug that says, "librarians don't retire...They just get reshelved". As well as my favorite quote from the movie The Mummy in which Evie says "I may not be an explorer, or an adventurer, or a treasure seeker, or a gunfighter but I am proud of what I am. I ... am a librarian.".

Too cute. They all did very well in finding things they knew I would like.

We also went to the Olive Garden to eat. That place is always a hit with us.

I am walking around better. I am still stuck with the knee brace for at least another two weeks. It has been a great heat producer...kind of like having a quilt wrapped around your leg all the time. Who knows, maybe I've sweated off a few pounds!

Well I will close this post for now and next time include some stitching progress pictures!

Happy stitching everyone and hope the extreme heat many of us has been having will ease up soon.
