Happy Birthday to me! :-) And Happy Halloween!



I'm very pleased with how the colors are looking on my Hunt Sampler. It's going pretty fast now that I don't have to think about what to put where. I'm not getting much done as I would like however, because I'm struggling to stay awake on the train. It always happens this time of year when it's still dark in the morning and next week after daylight savings ends, it will be dark both ways. I'll get used to it in a few weeks and start to get more done.

Today is my birthday! That sure was a fast year. And like last year, I still have no idea on what I want to do when I grow up. :-) I just know it doesn't include a four hour daily commute to downtown Chicago. But for now, it is what it is so I don't complain much. And I get so much stitching done it almost makes up for some if it. As for goals, I think I'd like to start running long distances again. I'm sure there is another marathon in me. :-)

No big birthday plans until the weekend - I have a hot date planned. :-)

Happy birthday! I hope the date goes well and you have a great time.

Hunt Sampler is looking fantastic, you really did find a nice combination of colors. I know I ended up trying about 7 or 8 different combos and ripped out varying amounts of each before I finally settled on my end choice. The extra time and effort was well worth it.

Hope you have a wonderful birthday, Margie!! And I'd echo what Mindi said. Sometimes it's tedious trying to find that perfect color, but it's well worth the time investment once you find it and end up loving the colors you chose.
