Now We are 40

It was a wonderful trip but there's always something about being home, isn't there?

I've written a bit about my trip here. I'm a little disappointed to report that I wasn't able to get to the needlework store--or indeed either of the two yarn shops--that I found in Ljubljana before they closed on Saturday. (Why close at 1:00? Why? Why?)

I spent over fourteen hours in the air, so I was able to make some progress on two projects that I stuck in the carry on bag: E&E&F's Polka Dot Scissor Fob and Mirabilia's Christmas Elf Fairy. I finished the first, but I'm afraid the elf will be hobbling around on one leg for a while while I finish the Christmas presents that must be sent abroad soon, um, last week.

What a cool way to celebrate turning 40! I told Niek that I want a front door plaque for my 40th - which is when I will hopefully complete my acupuncture/herbalism training. :)

It's not uncommon here, either, for stores to close at 1 on Saturday, and not much opens on Monday. You get used to it....

Hi Anna, thanks for leaving a comment on my blog. For a Stitch Bitch, you leave some pretty nice comments, by the way.
Congratulations on your 40th birthday. And what a way to celebrate. Did you actually go to Slovakia??? My last name is Vladár. Guess where that comes from?

Welcome back from your holiday & Happy Birthday [belated]. And, as my GF tells me, after age 29, just count the 'happies'

You mean, you didn't stitch the JBW pumpkin??? I know how you collect the pumpkin patterns & stitch them up for your pumpkin patch.

I prefer the Autumn pattern stuff to gift-mas patterns
