My local yarn shop, Green Planet Yarn, offers a birthday special to customers one time each year during their birthday month. After they ring up your yarn, you pick a chip out of a bowl and receive the discount on the chip. My chip was for 20% off. I bought a couple skeins of Araucania yarn made from sugar cane to knit a lace scarf for myself.
And I picked up this cotton to make Log Cabin Wash Cloths.
My sister Lisa (aka Feltypants) gave me one of her paintings for my birthday. When she showed it to me a few months ago, the first thing out of my mouth was, "Is that for me?" She said no and I was disappointed. Turns out it secretly was for me. It's hard to see in the photo, but "Faith" is written across the top.
A big thank you to Rachel at Not-So-Plain Jane for my birthday surprise. It really made me smile. Bloggy friends are the best.
Oh. I wanted to mention, now I am 43. It's looking pretty good so far :o)
