You Make Me Feel So Special...

Thank you all for the nice birthday wishes. Tomorrow is the big day. I'm planning to work as usual, but one of my very best friends at work is taking me to a concert tomorrow evening - the St. Olaf Christmas Festival. This festival can often be seen on public television and is quite famous nationwide. It's very difficult to get tickets but I've got connections - my friend is a graduate of St. Olaf! It will be a grand evening and I am really looking forward to it!

Another surprise in the mail today - Carol sent me one of her special scissors fobs! It's a Brightneedle design and her stitching and finishing are both perfect! The little charm where the ribbon is attached says "Made for you!" She stitched our initials on the back. I'm honored to have received this from Carol. I enjoy visiting Carol's blog and am always amazed at the projects she's working on and how quickly she manages to complete them. Thanks Carol!



It's been a busy week thus far, but tonight I will finally have time to get a little bit of stitching in. I have a needleroll that I'm working on but can't show it to you yet - it's a gift for a special friend.

Hope you have a great evening!
