Happy Birthday, Stephanie

Stephanie of In Stitches was my birthday exchange partner, and even though the Royal Mail hates me (Christmas presents arrive in March; empty boxes delivered to my inlaws), it arrived a mere three days late. She liked it a little (see comment below). Here's what I sent to the birthday girl.



The fob is Ewe and Eye and Friends Heart Fob. I saw she liked EEF and was interested in more fobs for her scissors (and more scissors!) so I made two fobs, one that I stitched and one that I beaded. I made her an Amy Butler Stash and Dash bag as well. Then I added some variegated DMC, a pair of scissors, a couple of fat quarters for finishing, and some linen (not pictured).

Happy Birthday, dear Stephanie. I'm not going to comment on being upset over turning 34. Really now.

Beautiful birthday gift!

I'm glad I'm not the only one with timely mailing issues. The fabric will be on its way this week.

When I think back to it, I'm actually happier at 41 than I was at 34

Hey, Anna, you really outdid yourself with this packet! Everything in it is fabulous!

Stephanie said...

Thanks so much again, I loved it, yes a little more than a little bit ;) We can only know what we know, so 34 is as much as I can imagine for now :)
