My 42nd Birthday... gulp :-)

*****Oh yikes! I stayed up way too late tonight - I will finish this entry tomorrow and add my Petal Fairy WIP and garden pics from today... tomorrow :-) (Yawn....)
...And, here is how she looked when I finally quit for the "night", more like 2 AM.... :-) Her skirt is done and she is starting to grow some feet!

I found this link that shows the WIP progress of Revelation by a stitcher - thought it was pretty interesting, and definitely makes me want to start this one! ***Please note: the pic I posted yesterday of Revelations is of the art print... here is the link for how it will look stitched up... as well, I have learned that this chart may be OOP)

I treated myself to a couple of birthday gifts "from me" today :-) I got a new Liz Turner Diehl chart - well, I think it is actually an older chart - on ebay called "English Garden." I will have scan in a photo of it when it arrives. And, I purchased Sebastian, the Fairy Cat from Heaven and Earth Designs. Isn't he cute? Juul pointed me in his direction - thanks Juul!

And, the mid season daylilies are now beginning to bloom - it was cooler and rainy all day today, so these pics are not so great, but I still want to record them:
Daylily: August FlameDaylily: Siloam Double EthelDaylily: Frivolous FrillsDaylily: Canadian SunriseDaylily: Dragon's Eye

It was a quiet birthday here today - DH's friend who is working on finishing off our basement was able to come up this weekend, so the two of them are down there working away... plus the cool, rainy weather - good day to stitch and watch baseball! And, what a relief that the trading deadline came and went without any Red Sox being traded away! I love this pic from the New Hampshire Sunday News this morning: No, Manny did not leave :-) Boston and the Red Sox showed him "the love" and he has all the warm fuzzies he needs for a while now.... and he hit the game winning RBI, in a pinch hitting role because showing him "the love" meant giving him the weekend off... but in the end, everyone in Red Sox Nation is happy...Red Sox 4, Twins 3 - that's a sweep of the series, thanks guys!

Happy Birthday Carol!!
Hope you had the best, best of days!

I'm back in France, but not online yet (I was needed at my parents' and they have a dial-up connection in their countryhouse, so I can only check my mail once or twice a day - and reading your blog today has been my only time on the internet!)

I do hope you enjoyed your gifts from France ;o) and I saw you've received lots of them from everyone - you so deserve being treated by all your friends!

Lots of love :o)
