Happy Birthday to meeeee!!

The day started with many treats from the gals at the office so we munched all day on good stuff – carrot cake, raspberry pie (one of my favorites) chips and salsa, dips, crackers, spinach dip (another favorite), cookies, chocolate (of course), banana bread — all good stuff!

But on to the important stuff you’re waiting for. 

First, Crocus Clusters instructions are posted!  Go to the Crocus Clusters link under Pages on the right sidebar.  Then go to the bottom of that page and click on Instructions for the file download.  Enjoy!

And, just in time for my birthday,

the two Snowglobes kits finally arrived!!  So my plan – use the random number generator to pick a winner based on the number of comments on the post about the give away.  There 39 total numbered comments, although some of those were my replies, so if I landed on my numbers, I’d just pick another.  So the first two random numbers landed on my comments. Wouldn’t it figure.   Keep picking.  The third time was a charm. #24 is the lucky winner Kim Petershack!  Congratulations Kim!  It will be coming your way soon!  It’s great fun to actually see the fabrics in person – even more gorgeous in person than the image I was working with – with all their gold glitz in them.

 Check out the great birthday tote Anita made for me. It’s just so bright and fun.  Carried my birthday treats to the office in it and I think it will now be used for my knitting.  That fabric just has to make you smile.





And here’s the new yarn I got this week from the Loopy Ewe. It’s called Sweet Potato Pie by Fiberphile.  Can’t wait to get started knitting  with it.  I plan to make this Boxleaf Triangle Shawl.  First I need  to finish off the shawl I’m currently working on tho.

Now I think it’s time to break out the birthday wine glass and celebrate.
