Birthdays and Stitching Updates!

Happy Sunday! We had a great week and I actually got some stitching in! Last Sunday we took my son's girlfriend out to a nice lunch and just generally had a really nice time! She turned 24 and OH TO BE 24 AGAIN! I would actually really love to go back to that! I've said it before, but these kids are my life.

Went to one of my favorite places to eat in Richmond, Cooper's Hawk, and we all just really enjoyed it. Then home for some yummy chocolate hazelnut cake, courtesy of Basilica's. 

Work was light, and I did stitch, but didn't get in a chunk of time until this weekend. So here's my progress so far!

That pink. It's called Clover by Gentle Arts. It's so fun to stitch with! I love pink anyways, but pinks and yellows/tangerine colors are some of my favorite combos. 

We're getting closer to figuring out what we want to do out back. So we went to Lowe's and were looking at some plants and aren't these pretty?

I really miss my perennial garden flowers. That's probably the only thing I miss about our old place. But I'm putting in a new one, and I can't wait! 

No stash this week. Trying to reign myself in, lol. 

My second Covid vaccine went off without a hitch! Sore arm, but no biggie. I encourage everyone reading this, please go get your vaccine. It's open to all adults in just a matter of days!

I hope everyone is well and happy! See you soon and until then,


  1. Lovely plants and stitching and happy birthday to your dear son's girlfriend.

  2. Happy birthday to your sons girlfriend, wouldn't it be nice to turn back the clock to be that age again! Pretty colours in your stitching.

  3. Happy Birthday to your son's GF!
    I too wish I would've dug up my Black-Eyed Susans when we moved.
    The house is renovated & up for sale, & by the pics, they tore them all out & put mulch down. :(
    Pretty flowers!
    Have a great week!

  4. Sending birthday wishes to your son's girlfriend. Your stitching is looking good. Looking forward to seeing your flower beds.

  5. Happy Birthday to your DIL. Did she love the cute cake you crocheted for her?
    Nice work on the sampler too.


Thank you so much! I appreciate all stitchy comments!
