Happy Birthday to Me! Happy Birthday Dear Meeeeeeeeee!!! Happy Birthday to me!
Whew! Now I'm winded! LOL! Just kidding...thanks for putting up with my self indulgence.
Today isn't actually my birthday; it was earlier this week. Since I have been through months and months of lean times and not feeling well and...etc...etc...(you get the picture?) I decided to buy myself what I really wanted for my B-day.... TATTING STUFF!!!!
Can anyone else relate to this? If not tatting stuff, then some other craft that you are addicted to. I decided to spoil myself this birthday as I got in on a months free rent deal for September + I just got my first full paycheck + birthday = TATTING STUFF!!!
So I went to Velona Needlecraft and indulged myself thoroughly. The owner's wife, Rose, was quite accomodating and asked questions about tatting. She was very sweet. She seemed interested in knowing about how long I've been tatting and a few other things about my hobby. It was pleasant to chat with someone about my favorite hobby.
Okay, so enough of the pleasantries....I'm dying to show you what I got myself for my birthday!
Ready or not; here I go!!!
Rosemarie Peel book that's out of print,
"Tatting Turns Over a New Leaf"
I snatched it up in nothing flat.
There's some lovely eye-candy to be seen there!
But wait! Before you go there looky at what
Ahhhh.... that was FUN! I loved showing you my birthday presents. Thanks for being such a captive audience.
