Some Delightful Things!!!

GR&DF thank you again for the kind wishes and warm thoughts!! My Birthday continues to be a nice thing!!

Yesterday I got an early morning delivery - and not really expecting anything - when I opened up the box I found it was a present from my sister and her family!! She had told me to expect something to arrive, but I just thought it would come with the regular mail or deliveries later in the day. When I opened up the box I was super surprised to see ..........


These monster strawberries dipped in different chocolates and then sprinkled with more deliciousness!! I have seen them before but never had seen them up close. They are huge!! Last night we cracked open the box and had a couple and they are really tasty. What a sweet gift - many thanks to the baby sister and crew!!

I got these lovely roses from Rico.....

I got these on my B'day and then yesterday he gave me a great Gift card to NiaH - so now that I have had the GC for less than 24 hours it is totally burning a hole in my pocket!! Looks like a road trip in the very near future!! My Mom also came through with a super gift o'cash.... to spend as she put it "on something you want and not something you need." I guess that leaves out the underwear and socks!!! :)

You know something, I was looking back and noticed I haven't slapped a stitching snap up in the longest time - I have been stitching and the projects I have been working on are: "Garden Path", "SoHRH', a Christmas present and converting up the next project from DMC to various silks - I had to order a bunch of silk because of the number of greens, I just didn't have them in my stash. I'll get some snaps posted tomorrow.

There you go sports fans - thanks for stopping by and do come again!!

Take care,
edgar

My Mum used to say " you get what you give" so you must have been a very generous fellow and deserve the gifts and obviously the love that is now coming your way. Strawbs are my favourite and they look amazing in the chocolate...I forgot you stitched LOL...but I am enjoying the life stories and pics re SF...now I know for sure there are folks out there with a life....how great is that!
