Birthday Presents

My friend Linda is home from Fredericton for a week, and brought me my birthday present just a little bit early. (b-day is next Friday, not dreading this one as much as last years!!)

She gave me a birthstone cherished teddy, and a copy of "The Lacy Knitting of Mary Schiffmann" by Nancy Nehring, and Traditional Knitted Lace Shawls" by Martha Waterman.

Now I really need to get my peacock shawl done so I can play with things from these books!

She and I took my kids and went to Lockeport to walk the beach. Water was cold; but once you numbed your feet to it it was quite nice. Lovely morning to be on the beach. Took a bunch of pictures, but I don't know how to get them off the new camera, so that'll have to wait until hubby is home.

We went for a walk on the waterfront in town as well, another nice area to walk. Found a few pieces of beach glass. The museum is selling little beach glass inukshuks ... they are really sweet. Turns out my niece (who works at the museum) is an inukshuk maker :) Took pictures of some of them as well.

Knitterpuddlians, would you mind if one (or two) extra knitters showed up on July 9th? Just let me know where and when. My hubby is off that week ... I'll tell him it can my my b-day present from him to go :)

No problem, we would love to have you! It's at my house ( you were here once ) at 7:00 p.m. I don't want to put my address here.)

Just let me know what you like to drink with your snacks.

Check out our blog to make sure nothing comes up to cancel it.

Early birthday presents are always a good thing!

I haven't walked Lockeport Beach in years! Next time I go up there to visit family I should do that. I would have liked to gone up there for July 1. The greased pole is always a hoot.
