Many Thanks!

Thanks so much for all the nice birthday greetings! It sure makes it easier to suddenly realize I can't deny being middle-aged. I'm 52--so unless I live to be 105, I am at least in the middle, if not beyond the middle.

Notice I am not mentioning a certain hill.

Thanks also for the comments on the dress. You should all know that while the skirt is 100% hand-drafted, the top is an adaptation of a bodice from another dress--actually, I think it's the one I made at Christmas. It is meant to be done in woven, but I'm doing knit. I'm all about comfort here, LOL!

This morning I received cards, gift cards, candy, lottery tickets and pink tulips! Pink tulips in January--how about that? I won $8 on the tickets. I have already ordered a red Kitchenaid hand mixer from Macy's with one gift card. I've needed a new hand mixer for a long time, and now I'll have one. The other card (that was from my kids, the first from my husband) will be used at Joanne Fabrics, Michael's and various other places.

We're going out as a family to a Chinese buffet tonight. It is my request, as I love Chinese food and a buffet sounds like a lot of fun.

Once again, thanks!
