Wow! 36 Followers...

Oh my gosh, there are 36 of you out there in blogville who are actually interested in what I have to say! Wowser! Who knew!
Well, that calls for a celebration....I think I will do a give away to some lucky someone. I will decide tomorrow and post what I am going to give away, so stay tuned!  It'll be good.

I have to let you all know that your comments on my recent acquisition made me giggle and laugh out loud.  Thanks so much for your posts and comments.  (Vonna, you get a pass for your Oh Sh*T comment and Laura with your Obadoobadoo!  was just too funny!)

And, I have to tell you, my clicky finger was really, really bad. I only posted SOME of my recent acquisitions. I'll post more soon too, once I gather up the rest. I bought Carriagehouse Samplings, Homespun Elegance and more...fortunately, the DH hasn't said a word. He's really great.
Speaking of Dave, today is our 31st anniversary. I am so blessed to be loved by such a wonderful man.

Here he is with his two favorite things, his Harley and Daisy.  The motorcycle is a new (to him) toy to celebrate his upcoming retirement.  I can't fault him for buying it (it was a great deal) and he deserves something for his 31 years at IBM.

And I've stitched so I've got to get some pictures of my Wips on this site.  I've worked on Broom Hilda (so cute and tiny!), Alphabets by Merrily Beams in a luscious AVAS cherry red silk, one of the baskets from Blackbird Designs, It's Berry Time, in a berry red Belle Soie and a number of July 4th stitcheries.  Oh! and a frame that I painted for a limited edition (2005) kit from LHN called Americana.  Wait till you see it! 

My weekend will start early, I am taking Friday off and we have Monday to celebrate Independance Day.  I am going to work in my garden, BBQ and stain windows.  And relax.

Thanks again for visiting!  It makes me so happy when you stop by!

Married 31 years! Congratulations to you and Dave! I love the pic of him on the bike with Daisy! I completely get why a guy wants a motorcycle but they scare the bejeezus out of me. 31 years with IBM - wow!

Looking forward to seeing what else you bought - I missed your last post somehow but love what you bought. I have got to get those sweet Halloween charts myself - and a whisk broom - I NEED a whisk broom!!

Oh, there is absolutely NO WAY you will EVER find me on the back of that bike. Nope, nada, ain't happening!

Happy belated Anniversary! When you get into the 30's of marriage it's a big deal! Congratulations!

I love all your recent stash. Broom Hilda is adorable! I collect little brooms! I can't wait to see what other stash you got!
