Monday Blues, a Birthday and some Crafting, too

Friends

A friend is someone we turn to
when our spirits need a lift.
A friend is someone we treasure
for our friendship is a gift.
A friend is someone who fills our lives
with beauty, joy, and grace.
And makes the whole world we live in
a better and happier place.

- Jean Kyler McManus

My friend Lisa cross-stitched this quotation for me many, many years ago. Happy Blue Monday and blessings! Today it is rather dreary and dusty out. This is what the sun looked like at 3:30 pm.

Today is my friend, Elizabeth's birthay. Susana used her digital sewing machine to make embroidered tags for thirty party favors. We got together on Wednesday to wrap everything up for a dinner party this past Thursday.




A few of us will be meeting tonite for dinner. HAPPY BIRTHDAY ELIZABETH!

This recycled jar got a makeover.

And a little stitching added to this .30 cent gift box is perfect for a holiday surprise.

Wishing you a blessed week! Tammy

Everything looks beautiful! Hope you have a great celebration with your friend on her Birthday. It's my Birthday week as well, mine is Thursday. :) Dreary, cold and rainy here this week but typical November weather for Central Illinois has resumed.

Hope you have a blessed week,
Linda

Hello sweet friend,
I am so glad you are able to get together with wonderful friends and celebrate! The favors you all made for your friend are so pretty! I know she must have loved them. Yes, I have seen the sky look like that in the middle of the day. When I was living in NM, we would have sand storms that were so bad you could barely see your hand in front of your nose! I hope you have a beautiful week and thank you for stopping by for a visit today! Love to you! Vicki

Nice to see everything come together for Liz's birthday. Susana's sewing machine is something else. They came out really nicely. I am pretty certain she was pleased with it all. I hope you had a wonderful dinner tonight. The sky in Kuwait is looking kind of murky today. OUCH!! Hope it blows away and the sun is shining again nicely tomorrow. Love the recycled jar and cross stitch.
Give Liz a big birthday hug from me!!!

Love,
Renee
