Vonna even attached a little charm inside the lid :-)
Mike (DH) started giving me a gift a day yesterday. He has a pile of gifts wrapped in red for me - and he stands there and thinks for the longest time about which he wants to give me. My big birthday gift is the framing that will be back in maybe a week or so. Yesterday he gave me little gold hoop earrings that are tri-color gold :-) Today he gave me this pair of Gingher 4" Spring Action EmbroideryScissors. They are pretty neat. I used them while stitching tonight. They take a little getting used to, but I do like them! He sells these now, if anyone is also interested in trying them out.
Jenn also sent me a lovely gift which arrived today - she sent me St. Reatham by Long Dog Samplers - she knows I am hooked on LDS, thank you Jenn!! And she also included an LDS freebie I had never seen before, and a nice tapestry needle. Oh, thank you Jenn! You are alwasy such a sweet friend!
I got up bright and early today and drove off to the DMV to get my driver's license renewed. Despite my early arrival, it was a busy day there again today. About an hour later, I had a new license in my hands. I am free to raise havoc on the roads for another five years now - LOL! And my photo did not come out too badly either, although the lighting in the DMV does leave a lot to be desired!! When I got home, it was still very early, so I had to wait for Mike to start his day. I tried getting through some blogs, and noticed that Angus was lying on the floor next to my desk. I snapped a quick photo to show you all that he appears to be doing well. I get a lot of emails asking about him - so here he is :-)
Mike and I went to see The Simpsons Movie this afternoon - funny!!!!!!!!
Stitched on today: Stitched on a gift (I need to get into high gear with this one!) and Annemarie's Neighborhood Round Robin
