Hello Everyone, 10 days ago, unfortunately I had my computer hacked into and all my old saved message and contact address book deleted and a dreadful message sent out to all my family and friends saying I was mugged in the UK and that I needed money. Of course this was a dreadful untrue scam.. I am very thankful for All My Family and Friends from Around the World that have been both a "Treasure and Comfort" to me. My new computer is now back from Staples and all checked out good. No virus and No internal computer damage. So I was very pleased to hear this. It is now "Time" to Move On and get back to posting about My Art, Family and Friends.
The day after the spammer hit my computer "My Dear Sweet Husband" brought me home some very lovely Spring Flowers to "Cheer" me up. My Sweetie, is my Very Best Friend and Soul Mate and I Love Him with all My Heart. Thank you My Dear for Always being there for ME.
My first artistic passion is hand embroidery. I recently joined a "Vintage Book Group" and this Oldie embroidery book called, The Embroiderer's Garden, by Thomasina Beck was brought to my attention last week. I order it from the Book Depository in the UK. It arrived yesterday and to say the least I am more than thrilled with it. My other passion is gardening and I especially love British Cottage Gardens and this lovely books reinterpret and recreates the beauty of these gardens in embroidery. Below is a photo of an embroidery garden from inside this wonderful book.
At the end of February was my 60th Birthday. I was dreading it but of course My Dear Wonderful and Wise husband reminded me I should celebrate being this old. LOL He always brings Joy and Happiness into my Life Everyday. He took me on a lovely trip to Lansing so I could visit all my favorite shops and we had a lovely meal at my favorite Red Lobster Restaurant. I received many lovely phone calls, email messages and cards from Family and Friends from around the world. I am truly blessed. Thank you all for making this day so fantastic for me.
