12 days of my birthday - Day 1 & 2

It's that time of the year again - another birthday! I stop counting them a long time ago and seems like every year I'm celebrating it longer and longer...

I started the first day of my birthday (Saturday, July 16) with a glass of Mimosa (champagne with passion fruit liquor). Freddy made a lovely breakfast (and  lunch and supper - it was awesome). This year I decided not to have a birthday party but instead have a "date" all day long. Later I opened a package that was brought to me by Royal Mail from our lovely Graceann. In the package I found a lovely card with kitty on the front who looks just like ZoomZoom!!!

and a gorgeous chart from Passione Ricamo:

Thank you so much Graceann!!!

On the second day of my birthday I was playing with my new camera - I fell in love with it instantly! Here is a few pics from around our cabin, click on it for a better view:

It was a very sad day in our neighbourhood - one of the dogs was run over by a truck. It was a nice dog but had a very bad habit of chasing cars and trucks. I knew that one day accident like this will happen - and the only person to blame for it is the owner...

Topaz never played with Fila, they never were "friends" but she saw the accident and was devastated - even didn't want to pose for my pictures...

Not much happen in my stitching world... I was stitching a little on the art mail for my stitching buddy, I'm done with all the motifs but still have to stitch the lettering. I also stitch a little on the Computer Catastrophes and, guess what? My hand had to go back to the brace! I am so disappointed! I didn't stitch at all last week, this week I will try just 15 minutes at the most and I'll see what happens.

So long friends!


  1. sorry to hear you still need the brace :(

  2. Happy Birthday, Evalina! Maybe the mailart will arrive in time for the celebrations :)

    So sorry to hear about the neighborhood furbaby.

  3. since you do mail art where do u find patterns for that?

  4. Happy belated birthday. Hope your hand heals soon.

  5. ooo happy birthday :) love your flower photos .. cute card and charts really nice ... haven't seen that one before .... and sorry to hear you have had to have the brace back on again ... take it easy rome wasn't built in a day ok :) love mouse xxxx

  6. Evalina, a belated birthday to you! I hope your thumb is better really soon.

    The plant life in the Yukon is just beautiful! That is like a different world and has its own special beauty.

    So sorry for the neighborhood losing one of its own... poor Topaz! How very sad!

  7. So sorry to hear about the neighborhood doggy getting truly is all on the owner. Keep your furbabies off the streets and things like this wouldn't happen.

    Your pics around the homestead are gorgeous!
