From top left: me at 9 and 12 months (1968), crocheting in the 70s, wearing my first handknit sweater in the 80s, stitching through the 90s (mine is the sampler in the top right corner), and onward and upward in the 2000s

Today I am celebrating my 40th birthday in the best possible way I can imagine. This includes doing the work I enjoy, for clients I respect; and then turning my attention to stitching, knitting, stained glass, and maybe even a little fun with wood and a lathe (newest obsession-in-progress); punctuated by calls, mail, and visits from people I love. I can't wait to see what fun the next 40 years will bring!

Live as if you were to die tomorrow,
learn as if you were to live forever.

Happy birthday!

I am envious of your crocheting abilities.

I tried once, and thought my head was going to explode!

Happy Birthday Debbie! The big 40 isn't so bad - I did it last May 25th. I think I have a different perspective on things now. Kind of like "OK - rehearsal is over, your life has now begun." Do what you enjoy and be surrounded by lots of friends and family. It sounds like you are doing just that. Best of everything to you......
