100 Posts 39 Years

Originally uploaded by Green Kitchen.
NOTE: I call it "mama brain," my husband called it "pulling a lame-o." Did you notice that I never really told you what I was giving away? My grand idea is make another pincushion with chick and flower pins. Sound good? I hope this works for you all. Because of my mess up I'm going to extend the sign up until midnight tonight, Flickr comments included.

Thanks for all the birthday wishes! I had a great day.


Well, it's about time for a give-away, no? Recently I found this embroidered trim that I thought had disappeared under suspicious circumstances. It turned up at the bottom of my floss basket. Whoops! So glad I didn't make any accusations.

Do you remember what I used it on? Yep, that chicken pincushion for the swap with Samantha. It remains one of my most viewed photos at Flickr, as well as one of the most common ways to find me through Google. Sometimes I wonder if "chicken pincushion" has some subversive meaning. Anyone?

So, leave a comment today, before midnight Pacific Standard Time, and tomorrow I will draw a name for one lucky winner. And, thank you everyone for being part of this thing that I love.

Oh, yeah, it's my birthday today. This is what I hope happens: a shower for my grubby self; finishing sewing the Hawaiian tunic to wear (Sounds like a muumuu, huh? One of the benefits of being 39.); shopping for fabric with the Bitter one; letting my four-year-old surprise me; riding the Giant Dipper; eating sushi; having banana cake with whipped cream, getting lots of hugs and kisses from the littles; no time outs.

P.S. Please make sure to leave a way for me to find you. You know Blogger isn't so good about this. I think you need to type the "www" before your blog address for it to work. If you're not sure, leave an email address. Melissa and Kristy, I'm not sure who you are.

Happy Birthday, Michelle! I hope you get all of those things and more!

One of the times I went down to Santa Cruz I rode the Big Dipper and I have a picture of me at the top of one of the hills. I'm going to imagine you like that today - smiling on a roller coaster with your hair flying. :)

Happy Birthday! I was going to comment even without the incentive bonus. The chicken pincushion is so perfectly round and cute. Also, it's a nice photo.

Dear Michelle,

Since we are "age mates," I will, this summer, follow you to the 39th birthday. Since we met each other 13 years ago (when you just knew me as "Retro Girl" and I was all uptight about things) I have more than once been shockingly glad that you decided to not put up with my rudeness there at the beginning and just introduce yourself.

I have liked liking things that you like, and disliking things that you dislike, and having differences at times in the things we like and dislike.

I have loved watching you be a mom, and doing little bits (though infrequent) to sometimes help you with that job. You are my adopted kitchen sister, and I could not ask for a better one.

I look forward to the next 13 years. And the next 13 after that. I want to be old ladies crocheting and canning vegetables together.

Thank you for everything. Your birthday is the sweetest gift to me.

I am so happy to see doing your taxes is not in your list today! I have enjoyed watching you grow up and be a Mom. I love your family. I thank you for the help when my twins were little. You are an inspiration and a true artist. Happy birthday and many more happy, health ones!

Happiest of Birthdays to you! Thirty-nine is great, and 50, the year I turned last summer is even better. Life is an adventure if you are looking for it, especially if you go looking for it out of your personal comfort zone. Cheers to you and your special day.

39! Happy birthday! I am closing out my 39th year, and the most fun thing was every time I had to say I was 39, I had to say "really, 39, not that fake 39 like some people say".

Hope you have a great one!

Happy Birthday Michelle!
I hope you had a fabulous day!
The day is just about over...I'm doing my typical, everyone's asleep, so now I can go on-line and check out the blogs routine.
Enjoy your whole birthday week!
(Back to reality, I'd better get some sleep while I can.)
Happy 39! Where does the time go?
Time flies when you are having fun. I guess we had a lot of fun because it seems to be flying!
It's all very amazing. To many more...

It could also be because of your Photoshop tutorial in watermarks ( which I only referenced again in my last post - bizarre ! )

Seriously, such lovely imagery and a wonderful tutorial in watermarks.

Happy Birthday !
