It's my birthday and I will stitch if I want to!!!!

Yes it my birthday and I took the day off to stitch!! I had planned to sleep in a little bit but was up with the birds! I guess they knew after yesterday's rain it was going to be a beautiful sunny day. I guess getting up early just gave me more time to stitch!
First a pic of something I won from Marjorie over on moonsilk stitches:


This is a pattern from an EGA Indiana state day also some canvas, a little fob and a book of reading for needleworks.

Second this is what my secret stitcher Karin from ILCS group sent me to reveal who she was:


A lovely little kitty pattern and the floss to stitch. I am looking forward to doing this.

This is what I started to stitch today:



Yes I took the plunge and finally started my And They Sinned. I have had this for awhile. I decided today would be a good day to start it. I am hoping that I can finish it before my 50th birthday in five years.

Tommorow I am off to House of Stitches my LNS to take my bee birth sampler to be framed up.

Hope you all are enjoying your day! I know I am!
Until next time,
May you be blessed with stitches,
Karol

Hello, happy birthday! It sounds like you are having a lovely day. Congratulations on starting "And they Sinned." I have that pattern, but it is not high on my list, I don't think I'll ever do it. I have some fabric for crazy quilting that I'm planning on bringing for you at the next guild meeting.

Happy Birthday!
