It’s my birthday today. Because of the proximity of my birthday to the Fourth of July – the fireworks have always been a huge part of my birthday celebration. When I was a little girl my grandmother had a house on the river and the barge that they used to set off the fireworks anchored right in front of her house. After the display we would go into the house & have ice cream cake I was probably ten before I finally figured out that the fireworks weren’t a grandiose birthday gift from my family (parents lie – it’s ok though they made me feel like the most important kid on the planet), because of the holiday my celebration goes on for days!

I MUST do fireworks – it’s a rule - so the crew and I went down to the park early on Monday to get a good spot & did a little stitchin’ while we waited for dark. The display was AMAZING – I was awed by how good the fireworks were this year! It totally made-up for the huge crowds that insisted on encroaching on our space. I took some lovely pictures hopefully I'll be able to share them at some point this week.

Today I came into work and got a wonderful surprise! Tisha and the kids stopped in to give me my first birthday gift of my 31st year. I got two handmade bags with matching small project bags and cards made by her kids and a little crocheted change purse type bag (I'll show you pictures as soon as I can). It's shaping up to be a wonderful birthday!

Happy Birthday!!!
To another great year... cheers!
Happy Birthday!

Happy Belated Birthday!!! Looks like you did well for yourself. Love, love, love having project bags. I'm not the most organized of creatures, but containers help keep stuff, well..."contained." :)
