Happy Days

It's all good here. We (myself, Cindy and Hadley) were completely astounded yesterday when Mouthy Stitches 2 opened for sign ups and about four hours later all places had been filled. It was scary, in an absolutely awesome way. Thank you so much to all the wonderful people who had time in their days to join in the swap.

Needless to say I had to stick to the rules as well as everyone else, so I have posted my inspiration mosaic for my secret partner. Despite being one of the mamas I will not know who is making for me until I receive my package. I wanted my mosaic to show my partner that I like colour; I like modern; I like hand stitching; and most of all - I like quirky. I want to see how much my partner can surprise me with this guidance.


I had to stop putting camper vans on my mosaics for the first time ever as Nicky so perfectly fulfilled that need for me now.

Meanwhile, today has another significance for me, well us - himself and me. Because as of today we have been married for 12 years. I like that. Thankfully he likes that too. It is a good kind of happiness that fills me to the brim. Twelve years ago we celebrated in an understated manner in my brother's garden in Canada, with family and friends. I wouldn't change a thing.


Today is a good day. I hope you are having a good day too.

Susan

  1. Happy anniversary! Every year should be celebrated well - wishing you and your Mr many more happy years together.

    Fabulous response to the sign-ups (crazy, scarey speed). Sorry to miss out this round, but just to say that I think the tote idea is a brilliant one! Will lurk and spy from the sidelines!
