Here you will often find my thoughts of the day, with the occasional vent - but first and foremost this is where I can share my passion for stitching.

What a wonderful day!

Thank you all for leaving such wonderful birthday wishes today - what a lovely inbox to come home to! {{hugs}}

Have to admit, the day went really well - my lollies/choccies went down a treat, and I got out of work for an entire hour walking around the two floors to hand them out and make sure everyone got one ... see, there was a method behind my madness! LOL. As soon as I walked in the door I got ushered over to the 'Hotline' area where we sit when I'm on Supervisor Hotline relieving duty, and got given a big bunch of beautiful pink tulips, and a birthday card, and an envelope containing the collection money - so I now have another $95 to spend (wow), and I've told them I'm going to put it towards framing costs too, which means I can get both my fave stitched pieces framed - it will also be a long-term reminder of my 40th, and all the people in my life at that time. I've had a day full of 'physical' hugs from my colleagues and well wishes, and loads of 'cyber' hugs from you all, and I feel as though I am absolutely glowing from the good vibes :)

But the gifts didn't end there at work, I also got yet another gorgeous gift from the other side of the world in my PO Box today ... Barbara sent me some of the most wonderful, glorious threads in my absolute fave colour - blue!! Barbara, thank you too for your very generous gift ... I am blown away by your generosity as well - thank you so, so much {{big hugs}}. And I get to see some of that that infamous silk thread up close and personal - it's no wonder you love it so much ... it's "yummo"!

I've decided that the United Nations should start a campaign and get everyone in the world blogging - because I reckon world peace would be created within a couple of months :D Everyone I've met through blogging so far has been the most generous and loving in nature and spirit - OK, admittedly we're all stitchers too, so maybe we have an edge there ... LOL.

So thank you, thank you one and all once again ... I'm now off to crack open a bottle of bubbly as my final end to a wonderful day ... so I guess that means no baking happening tonight LOL.
