Here's what happened to Jo in 2007:
2007 - Jo was 41. 07/07/07 is a date that reads the same in the USA as it does in the rest of the world. It was also the day Jo got married and became Mrs P. The wedding was traditional with many friends and family providing the services; the vicar, the limousine chauffeur and the photographer were all good friends. The evening reception took place in their music venue which the bar staff had decorated for the event. A wonderful day and a date not easily forgotten!
So, what about my life in 2007? I really had to dig to remember what was going on. For one thing - I'm OLD - some would say "older than dirt".....so my memory is like that Old Grey Mare - it "...ain't what it used to be".....what I DID remember was the year before (2006) I turned 50 and my sweet mother sent me to England on a trip of a life time....a tour featuring needlework. It was GRAND!
In 2008 - yes, I know.....it's the year AFTER 2007(I may be older than dirt, but simple math is still amazingly easy for me <G>).....I retired from IBM after 30 years.....again - it was GRAND!
Soooooo......what about 2007? Well, the only memory I could conjure up.....I was really, really getting into painting miniature portraits and attended a seminar by Jane Marcks in Phoenix, AZ. I learned SO much - here's what we painted:
Miniature Portrait on Porcelain - 4x3.25 inches - Painting area for Portrait 3.25x2.5 inches
Embellished with 24Kt Gold, Raised Paste and Enamel
Since Jo likes Halloween themed things, here's something I stitched I just love - and hope she does, too.
Hope your special day is truly GRAND, Jo!!
