Special Birthday ~~~~~~and a finish
Happy Birthday Mom
This is Eva Piccirilli, and today is her birthday. She is still an active lady who is 84 years old. Once she retired, she helped with her great-grandchildren...Nico and Joey (cousins, who celebrate their 20th birthdays on Dec 13th) and grandaughter Elyssa (age 17)...always available to drive them to and from school and work. Now she spends time knitting, crocheting and loves to do basic embroidery. I have several pieces she has done for me.
So, today I send my love from Arizona to Rhode Island to my mom.
This is from By The Bay Needleart..stitched from the kit...I really like the way it turned out. I used the tag to initial and date (on the back). The backing is a lovely plaid...don't you think. I made a small change by stitching a visible dash line around the piece.
I was also able to find (at Staples) the solution for the January challenge...see my Challenge blog..(sidebar).
I won't get much stitching accomplished today...work at JoAnn's day... and as soon as the Post Office opens, I am off to mail a few packages....and I missed a delivery of 2 packages yesterday, so in line I will have to stand and wait my turn.....
Have a great day and I am so glad you decided to take time from your busy day to visit....
