I have also started to paint a background for a larger stitched piece which will be a swamp when it is finished. I hope to do some free motion stitching on this but I need to practice first. I went out today and bought a new hoop and some stabilizer to get me started.

Last weekend I celebrated a birthday! Birthdays have a different meaning these days. They seem to come so quickly. I was just getting used to the big one that came last year and now I am one past the big one. Yuck! Nevertheless I celebrated with three of my friends and we ate lasagna, drank wine, and read our cards - which ended up turning into more of a brainstorming problem solving discussion about each of our 'questions', along with a lot of laughter. One friend said she had a sore tummy from laughing so hard all evening.
