Happy Birthday to Me!

2007 11 07 003

Today, it's my turn to turn 40! The other day I got my YesAsia gift to myself. That was a good gift! Above is the Hello Kitty banner stitched for my by CupcakeGuru in our Tea Towel Tour swap on Craftster. I left the theme of my towel open, but I did suggest the fact that I had a big birthday coming up, so my partners went with that theme.

BlueSparkie did this parade of sweets. Mint chocolate chip is one of my favorite flavors! How did she know?

I stitched up this chocolate layer cake with raspberries. My husband and daughter baked a real one for us last night.

Isn't it awesome? It is a very special thing to have things like this stitched for me personally. Many warm thanks to my swap partners!
