LVIII

What the heck is LVIII??  That's how old I am today.  I don't feel a day over 30 - except on those days  I feel 70 - HA!

I have such great friends - I received this beautiful baby blanket from my friend in CA.  It was knitted by my mother in 2008 for S's grand daughter.  Knowing my daughter and her DH will be having their first baby in October, S sent me the blanket in memory of my mother.  Wasn't that thoughtful and sweet??
And here is a great surprise from Jacquie!!  The cutest card and an embroidered tea bag holder with yummy tea!  The package was wrapped in white tissue paper with the most darling button as the bow.  It looks like it matches the card!  (How did you manage that, Jacquie??). Thank you SO VERY MUCH for thinking of me!!
I also received these wonderful treats from my SL in Hawaii.  She always manages to surprise me - and knows the way to my heart.  Hawaiian teas, a little stuffed monkey with a bib to cross stitch for the new little ones, another glorious cross stitch pattern and threads ("Q is for Quilter") from The Victorian Sampler, and a Stitch Starter from Blue Ribbon Designs.  Can hardly wait to sit, sip and stitch. Thank you, Val!
Dinner tonight with DH and my delightful Father-in-Law.  What more of a perfect day could a Birthday Girl ask for?

Keep yourself surrounded by stitches ~ Cheers ~
