acorns abound

Yesterday when I got home from a long work week I was more than wonderfully surprised by an early arrival of a Birthday package, It started with lovely wrapping that were too much fun to open. Everyone gathered to watch the unveiling and were amazed to see all the goodies stitched with love. Teresa has been busy stitching acorns in secret. Look at the wonderful package filled with acorns and squirrels. A tote bag and a zippered project bag. A fall chart, acorn buttons and charms, a acorn box, a box filled with some polished acorns. I might just be the most fall fabulous person at the stitching retreat! :) Can y'all stand if I post another countdown? Okay I will. In just 17 days I will be in New England for the retreat. I took myself on a little birthday shopping spree today at LNS.(If I didn't who would?) Stitched for several hours and had the best time chatting it up there. It is really a great group on Saturdays. There is a great sandwich shop just around the corner. The best chicken salad sandwich in the state, it has cashews and dried cranberries and just a hint of mayo on whole wheat. Plus they have great coffees. All in all a fantastic start to Monday's one year older event. How can I be this old? I just don't feel this old.

thanks for stopping by,
