Celebrating Half a Century

I hit the big Five O on Tuesday. I'm really thankful for my renewed health and could not help but reflect what life was like for me just a year ago.

Wow, time really flies. I can't believe that 2012 is almost half gone.

I have some thoughtful friends that made my birthday extra special and I wanted to share some pictures of their gifts to me. First, I received a lovely package from my friend Arcadia in France. Among the things she sent was this lovely cross stitch that she created into a very cute purse.
This past Saturday, I opened my mailbox to find this lovely cross-stitched card and biscornu kit from my friend Nicola in England.
On Monday I received this lovely stitched piece and a French cross-stitch pattern from my friend BeckySC.
Thanks to all three of you for your friendship and kindness.

An Ornament Fest

This blog has been sorely neglected. I did do quite a bit of ornament stitching before Christmas and sent them off to family and friends. In fact, I still have a couple to finish before I visit my family in Michigan later this month.

My treatment for my cancer is now completely finished. I finished radiation two days before Christmas. It has been an excellent way start the new year. I'm feeling so much better and can walk without becoming winded. I'm even back to fighting with my appetite!

I'm just going to post the pictures and leave it at that. If you desire specific pattern information, you can leave your question in comments and make sure your e mail is attached.

Thanks for paying me a visit.
