I Love Candy Canes finished!!


I finally finished I Love Candy Canes. Woo hoo! This was an easy piece but for some reason it took me forever to finish- I guess cause I was only working on it one day a week, and it was on the night I usually have zumba class. lol
I don't think I posted this yet either- I actually finished this several years ago but never framed it- I found a frame my dad had made me - for what I don't remember- but it fit my L*K Autumn Cottage Boxer perfectly! So I framed it a weekend or two ago.
My birthday was ok, nothing super spectacular, but got lots of well wishes from friends and family, a nice card and gift from my boss. :) Not alot of money for a gift from dh, but that's ok- he'll make it up to me at some point. Overall it was a good day. David couldn't understand why I didn't bring a party home from work with me- he thought I forgot my birthday! I told him we'd celebrate when Grandma and PaPa got here. :)  That's about it for today- better go to bed- back to work tomorrow.
