Happy Birthday to Me Giveaway Winner!

Encouraging Words of the Day:

Be on guard. Stand firm in the faith. Be courageous. Be strong. And do everything with love. ~ 1 Corinthians 16:13-14, NLT

It was a wonderful birthday, thanks to my family and friends. My sister cooked a delicious dinner and she and our nephew brought it to our house one night so we wouldn't have to leave the house (remember my husband is recuperating from surgery). She also baked a gorgeous strawberry cake which we scarfed down so fast that I wasn't able to take a photo. And of course Ida and Josh came bearing gifts. Among them was this lovely pincushion in a frame that Ida made. She embroidered the fabric and "somehow" put it into a gorgeous picture frame so it stands up. Hard to describe so here's a photo along with a pretty notepad and a beautiful scarf she crocheted (Ida can do anything).

Well, I know you're wondering about the giveaway so the random number generator says:

Congratulations, Sophie. I'll be sending you an email requesting your mailing address. Thanks to all of you, my blogging friends for the "Happy Birthday" wishes and for your friendship. I love sharing our lives on our blogs. I enjoy reading about what's going on with you and learning from you.

That is all.
