Wrinkles and a Birthday

Hey, Friends!

DS came  up for the weekend to celebrate my birthday, and we went to Mom’s for potato soup and cheese biscuits.  He got me a luscious set of sheets in cranberry (love that red)!  I've been sleeping soundly!  Mom got me a sweater and a ‘little piece’ of money – and she treated us to dinner at Red Lobster last night.  In celebration fashion, I had an appointment to get my hair trimmed, so I also had my brows ‘designed’ and my ears candled.  Have you done this?  I hear different experiences, but for me it was good.  My head feels clear and breathing is even easier. 
Now on to the wrinkles...   You've seen this Greeting in better form, but wanted to show you the needle minder!  Isn't it just the sweetest?  ‘Joy’ from the 2011 JCS magazine is stitched with HDF silks .  I’ve enjoyed stitching these smalls for Christmas, and want to get some finished so they can fill my bowl.  The tiny smalls are on my holiday tree for Christmas.  This tree sits on the shelf over my computer so a glance up brings a smile to my face.   
We’re coming down to final days of holiday preparations.  I hope you’re all finished shopping and baking goodies so you can sit back, relax, pick up a needle if you choose, and enjoy the festivities along the way.
Thanks for stopping by!  I appreciate y’all!
and Happy Stitching
