I was wanting to try those forms for some time and now I have them! And a beautiful snowflake frame and a gorgeous piece of Lugana fabric. I guess it is time to start thinking about Christmas ornaments. Thank you Danni so much, you have made the last day of my birthday very special.

and Kooler Design Studio added a free gift:
On the seventh day of my birthday I ordered a book that I always wanted:
Self-Mastery and Fate With the Cycles of Life written by H. Spencer Lewis, first Imperator of AMORC (Ancient Mystical Order of Rosae Crucis)
By H.Spencer Lewis. Bring success, happiness, health, and prosperity into your life with the simple system described in this book. Map out charts of your life for every week, month, and year without mathematics. Learn to eliminate chance and replace fate with self-mastery.
And I decided to have a little give away from my stash on the twelfth day of my birthday (July 28). Please leave a comment and your name will be entered for a prize.

I made "peace" with my man. Can you believe, the only thing he really wanted is the kitchen! About three weeks ago I reorganized it a little and that made him angry. He didn't say any thing and for three weeks we were in a cold war. Finally (after pulling his tongue out) he admitted what bothered him and all I had to do is to allow him to be the king of the kitchen... I love to cook but what the heck, he can have it! I still have to do the dishes though...
And I started to stitch one of my birthday gifts (received from Lisa), Life is a journey. This is how it will look when is finished.

And here are couple of items that need a special recognition: a scissor fob and a cupcake. Just look on the extra fine stitching on both of them. The fob is stitch on linen or evenweave, very small count (I think 32) over 1. I even can't see the cross stitch, just little points... This masterpiece was stitched by Heidi from Idaho Falls. Thank you Heidi, I absolutely love it!
The cupcake was stitched also on evenweave with a very small count (I think 32) but over 2 so I can see the cross stitch and it has beads in the cheeks! It surely puts a smile on my face. That piece of art was stitched by Rene from Las Vegas. And do you see the fob for the needle? I love it and use it to count threads in the fabric. Thank you so much Rene.

Way before my birthday I received from Deborah "O Canada" chart:
and a gift certificate that I use to buy a biscornu chart:
My boss gave me flowers, card and a 100 bucks (cash!) and let me off work early.
And I taped my morning opening presents fun. Here is the link http://zamana.ca/video/
It will take you to an empty page with one link on it that you have to click on. It is a large file and takes a long time to load. Enjoy!
