Happy Birthday Daniel!

23 years ago today, I became a Mom for the first time, Wow...does time fly. My son means the world to me and has grown to be a wonderful young man.

I finished this design in time for Daniel's 11th birthday as the frame is dated July 1998. I signed the back with happy thoughts for my husband and 4 children. What a colorful, fun and sentimental design! It's stitched on the perforated paper that was included in the kit and has stood the "test of time." I have long since preferred to stitch the Mill Hill kits on 28 ct. linen but I never tire of the beads!
This frame has a special place on the table for our birthday dinners. Maybe an heirloom to be?? One can only hope! (I HOPE the paper that it's stitched on holds up over the years!)

Happy, Happy Birthday to my buddy with all my love. May God bless You Daniel, and may the year ahead be filled with happiness and good fortune. Enjoy your day :D
Love you, Mom xoxoxoxoxo

To all who may be celebrating a birthday today, I wish you a Happy Birthday and a Happy Year ahead :)

Hugs and Stitches,
