Not much happened last week, except... it was my birthday!! My parents took me out to eat, the BF got me my favorite perfume, and I received lots of awesome birthday emails/ecards from friends around the world.
I participated in two birthday exchanges this year. Look at all the flossy goodness!

I even received cards from Menards and the Literacy Council (where I teach ESL students), and my new employer. Menards sent me a coupon for a 15-piece craft knife set.
My friend Faith sent me a huge hank of Victorian Sampler floss along with a card. She is so sweet!
Once a month, my employer has a day where we celebrate the birthdays for the month. On that day, everyone except for the birthday people brings in food and it ends up being a large potluck. We celebrated the January birthdays last Friday. There was soooo much food... and it was so good!
Did you hear it? The cheers of accomplishment... The happy dancing? I finished Part III of Sampler aux Bouquets! The entire piece is now finished. Yay!!

It ended up being 29" long and about 10" tall. Since it's finished, I'll set out on my journey to find the perfect frame. Wish me luck!
Until next time,
