New Year, Birthday Countdown, Etc

Well - Finally a new post for the new year! I have been busy. Well, only two days until I turn 50... we'll see what the year brings. I am very excited about being 50!! One of the 'creative' things I want to learn is embroidery. It is something I have been wanting to do for awhile... I remember way back in 1979 I actually took a college class (I was a Home Ec major at the time...) where the professor actually taught us embroidery and we were graded on our stitches! Can you imagine? Needless to say, I learned only what I had to in order to pass the class and then promptly forgot everything. So here I am again! I just purchased a new book called A Rainbow of Stitches. It has embroidery and cross-stitch patterns. Looks really interesting. I will post (soon I hope) some examples.
