When I was in Vegas with Auntie Em, I had the sudden realization that she too will turn 60 this year. My other aunt received the Drawn Thread Alpine Garden piece that I made. But Auntie Em is my favorite aunt. (You can't have favorite children, but you are allowed favorites among your other relatives. Auntie Em is my only maternal aunt; auntie Alpine Garden is my favorite, but not only, paternal aunt.) Em knows she's my favorite, and she knows what my dad's sister got for her 60th birthday. Fortunately, I have realized this more than 6 months before her birthday ( December 27).
I've got to get started! I'm going to bring some things over to my cousin's (Em's daughter) for her and my sister to look over on Sunday, but here's what I'm thinking so far:
Drawn Thread Cloister Garden
Drawn Thread Sanctuary
Moira Blackburn Peaceful Garden
Hillside Samplings Animal Samplings
Blackbird Designs something from A Fine Collection
I also considered DT's Souvenir Sampler, but the dude thought I should stitch something new. I'll take your votes, but I have to tell you that my sister's and cousin's have more weight.
