My Birthday! cont'd...

So here's just some more pictures from my birthday "day." I've been saving up my spending money, and bought myself a brand new watch! I'd been watchless for months, and I couldn't take it any longer! Happy Birthday to me!
My immediate family sent the flowers and balloon. So thoughtful and pretty! They lasted for a LONG time too. I just threw them out last week. That's almost two weeks of lovely color! I also received tons of cards from friends and family. Thanks bunches guys! It's hard to be away from family, especially when birthdays were made out to be such a big deal at home, but these little things help.
Dale got me some great stuff! I love decorating magazines, so he bought me a few of my favorites!
He also bought me this pattern that I have been coveting for probably about six months. I'm so excited to make it for Brighton! After all my other projects are finished, of course... It could be a while, I've got a giant stack going on in my sewing room. I didn't get a picture of it, but Dale also bought me a serger for my birthday! I've been wanting to make a lot of clothes for myself and Brighton, and have been complaining about how a serger would finish off the clothes so perfectly. Dale was really excited to get me a new machine! Now to just figure out how to use it...

I am soooo jealous! I want a serger soooo bad. Dan hasn't broken down and gotten me on yet though. One day.....

I am super jealous that you got a serger. I just borrowed a friend's mom's the other day and loved it. My mom said that I can borrow hers if I get it fixed (the tension's all messed up and she can't figure it out). I'd probably get to borrow it for a long time (forever maybe?) since she doesn't really sew anymore. Thus the reason she hasn't fixed it. Consider this my comment for all 16 of the posts you just did. I always know that when my "friends" folder on reader is really high, you posted :-).
