The birthday post

Yes, I realize it's been nearly a week since my birthday (and a little longer since I've finished anything) but I feel like I've got to brag on a few of my gifts.

1. A picture frame. My mom took my apple pie sampler and had it steamed, matted (twice!) and framed. It's currently hanging in my bedroom but it goes in the kitchen of my someday house because my someday kitchen is pale yellow and in my world, those colors go together.
Anyhoo, it's framed beautifully and it makes me look like I knew what I was doing!
2. Cherry Tree Hill "Silky Kidd". It's naughty. 52% silk, 22% merino, 18% mohair, and 8% nylon. 6 hanks- she done good. I'm thinking a cowl-neck pullover but am very open to suggestions.
3. A pie I made from last year's mulberries. A gift to myself- I ate most of it.
4. My very favorite from my Bam Bam. I'm ridiculously in love with this ring- it was his mom's and she's passing it on to the next May baby- me.

Ooh - to all of it! If Bam Bam is giving you a ring of his mom's, it really MUST be serious! :)

I agree with critterknit... OOOH... AAAAHHH!

Yarn is awesome, pie looks scrumptious and YAY for the ring!
