A bit of pre-birthday fun!

So tomorrow is my birthday. I have been very fortunate to have a bit of birthday related fun before the 20th as well. On Thursday, I got a call from Michael’s to say that my Celtic Winter was framed and ready to be picked up. I was very excited….it only took 8 days:) I hinted to Allen that I would love it if he picked it up on his way home, but then decided that I didn’t want to make him make and extra trip since he had worked a very, very long day. Needless to say I was ecstatic when my darling hubby showed up not only with an Olive Garden dinner, but my Celtic Winter as well. He is such a great guy. So her she is…

And her she is with her Spring counter part. Winter is bigger because she was stitched on 28 count Jobelan and Spring was stitched on 18 count Aida (before I made the leap to linen and evenweaves) Maybe I will do one of the other soon. Who knows.

Today, Allen took me out for a more official birthday lunch. He took me to what looks like a hole in the wall place near his office. In reality, it is a wonderful restaurant and wine bar. I had a lemon pepper tilapia that was to die for. That is saying a lot as I HATE fish. The sauce was fantastic as was the endive and apple salad I had as well.

This evening, I have been working on my goals for the Stitch-a-thon going on at the Robin’s Nest BB. I met my goal on White Wedding and got some of the outlining done on the second corner of M9. I hope to finish it tomorrow.

I also picked up the first season of House on the way home today. I have been watching reruns here and there and wanted to actually figure out some of the history of the characters. I love Hugh Laurie and his lack of his British accent in the show still amazes me.

Well, off to play gameboy and watch Allen shoot things on the computator in the basement:)

  16. Hugh Laurie was also very good in Jeeves and Wooster…

  17. Happy Belated birthday! All your framing is beautiful! I had to smile at your comment about “before making the leap to linen and evenweaves”… tell me about it! I kick myself at all the stuff I did on Aida — I even stitched Mirabilia’s THE KISS on Aida! Of course, most people who see it IRL wouldn’t have a clue between Aida and Linen, so it’s no big deal. 😉

  18. Happy belated birthday Leslie, hope you had a fantastic day 🙂 Your Celtic Winter looks wonderful all framed, you must be thrilled with it.
