Happy BD To Me!

I swear ... it was Labour Day last week ... and it just dawned on me that October begins this week ..... and the beginning of October ... yup October 1st ... is my birthday!

I decided last year that I would begin & carry on a tradition instituted by a dear old e-friend Nora Creeach ... who passed away last year.

It was a prize I won in her annual Birthday Draw that provided me with an instrument to my success ... a book that turned on my ability to pattern ..... which in turn has since yielded 5 published articles ..... and for that I am eternally grateful!

And so ..... here's the plan!

Simply leave a comment on this post to get in on the Birthday Giveaway Draw!

As I'm posting rather late ... I will wait until after dinner on Sunday October 4th to make the draw ... and announce the winner then.

Okay so ... the sweater for Mel is progressing ... and I am really pleased with how it looks!

Not only do I have about 18" of the finished 29" length done, I started a sleeve to take along to work ... and have 18" of the first one done ... so am sure I'll have it done for her birthday.

November 13th is the day ... yes a Friday ... the day she was born on! A lucky day for me regardless of superstition that some attach to it! Can't wait to see her in the finished creation ... I think it will have been worth the effort! There are very few people in the world I'd go to such lengths for ... she is one of them. The rest pay cash!

Love & Hugs ... Marie

Happy Birthday, Marie! And, many, many, more! My birthday was last week and just yesterday I thought about doing a giveaway. Thanks for reminding me again. I didn't miss the boat, because last week was my birthday on the Gregorian calendar and my birthday on the Jewish calendar comes out next week. I'd better get moving on finding things to give away!

About Nora. I once won one of her birthday giveaways. I don't remember what it was, but I do have the most fantastic tassel that she made as my partner in a tassel swap. I'll take a picture and post it one of these days.

Which reminds me, you really need to learn to do the photo thing so we can see what you're working on more often!

Happy birthday to you from the UK. It's my son's 45th birthday on Oct 10th. I usually knit something for him. 'Anything but gloves, Mum' he says, after a particularly hilarious attempt by me at what looked like a very simple pattern, (I've never had any problems with other patterns, including Kaffe Fassette) I can only conclude I was having an 'off'day, or maybe just a tad too much red wine. He's getting a very long 'Dr. Who' scarf, this year. I figure I can't go TOO wrong with that lol luv Lesley

A very happy birthday Marie and many more years of delightful stitching.

Celebrate everyday as if it is your birthday, not just the one day, every day is new and every day
is a present to open when you awaken and create whatever you can from that day. Hear a bird? See a
butterfly? watch a ant carry his load? EVERY day is a beautiful day
when you are in it Marie. You share yourself everyday. Thanks & Happy Birthday-dance forever

Happy birthday Marie!
Guess what? My birthday is October also. But not until the 23rd. October is a good month for Marie's!

Hapy Birthday Marie even if it is a day late. I just read your blog a day late. I have a niece who lives in Ajax and I must mention to her about your restaurant but she probably already knows it.

It is good to pamper yourself even if it is only one day a year. As a retired gal I think I am pampered every day.

Hugs

I've been blog hopping and came upon yours.
Let me add birthday wishes to you from mid-Missouri.
I do believe your blog will be added to My Favorite Blogs sidebar, and make a comment in my blog post.
