Lori, I so enjoy catching up with you and your farm activities. I just love your shop pictures and I am planning to come visit you one day. I hope you have had an extraordinary birthday. It takes a special person to give a gift to others on their own birthday. Thank you, the stitch pattern is so sweet.

Happy Birthday and thank you so much for the freebie for us on your birthday! This is so sweet of you! I have seen robins twice this past week on my walks around the lakes and it always makes me so happy when they return so this chart is extra special to me! I hope you have a wonderful birthday filled with all the love and happiness you can stand!

Hello from France,
Thank you so much for this sweet gift. A little late I wish you an happy birthday.
I celebrated my 50th anniversary in january and I lost my sweet and beloved black cat Myrtille in february... I was (and I'm still) so so sad. Sometimes people don't understand this feeling. I know you do. When I read your blog I share a lot of things with you !
Thank you once morefor your sweet chart.
