I had an interesting birthday. Hilariously, the set of candles that was supposed to spell happy birthday instead spelled out that which you see above, and that is an excellent metaphor for how it went.
Gordon bought me yarn.
Kid 1 bought me soap, cosmetics, a blanket, and a lovely aerogarden among other things.
Kid 2 bought me a mannequin for my knitting and a shotgun. Mossberg. Very nice.
Also, someone sent me this.
It is very pretty. One side is clear, the other side is floral fabric. The inside of the floral fabric is purple with gold polka dots. A quick search online identified this as a floss bag for embroidery.
This shall be a yarn bag instead, and I love it. But it came without a card or any sort of attribution. So thank you so much to whoever sent the bag. Since we don’t know who did it, I will pimp the maker of it instead. It was made by Lake Wind Studio.
Well, I am off to work on edits of Ruby Fever and Sweep of the Heart. I will also be looking through your questions that Mod R is helpfully compiling. Gordon and I hope that your holidays went well and brought you peace and a much needed chance to recharge.
Your Hagy Bird.
