It is hot, sweltering hot, here in the Shenandoah. The mercury hit over 100 today. Whew!
I was absolutely overwhelmed at all of the wonderful birthday and anniversary wishes! What a lucky girl I am! Thank you, thank you, thank you, dear blogging buddies! You made my birthday that much more special!

I received lots of goodies for my birthday but I have not had a chance to snap their pictures. I promise to share my new stash with you very soon! However, there is one BIG gift that I cannot wait to open...My family spoiled me for my birthday...they gave me the money to purchase my very own StitchMate needlework stand! I have heard so many wonderful things about the StitchMate needlework stand I am hoping that it will allow me to stitch that much faster. I am very excited and will be ordering my new stand very soon and promise to share all of the wonderful details.
I would also like to share with you a SAL with my dear friend, Robin (no blog.) We finished our Lizzie*Kate SAL and decided to embark on a Tree of Life Samplings SAL. I am stitching "The Sparrow" and Robin is stitching Quaker Peace.
I am enjoying the bright colors on the sampler...here is my progress so far...

I have lots of pictures to share from our anniversary trip to Williamsburg and I promise to post those soon! Again, thanks for all of the well wishes and kind comments!
