HAPPY BIRTHDAY NICOLA!!


Thank you for sharing your Birthday Year Celebrations with us all.

From the most experienced stitchers with walls full of Scarlet Letter Samplers to the newbies who finished their first piece just for this challenge.
From the specialist stitch specialists to the cross-stitch purists.
From the bloggers of many years to those who have never made a post before.
From the East, the West, the North and the South of the World.

We have all joined together to celebrate the Scarlet Letter Year of a woman who few of us had met before the Challenge started, but now is a dear friend to us all.

Thank you for your generosity in sharing this special year with us,

Ladies and Gentlemen of the Blogs - I give you a toast to 

NICOLA






And a Special Message from Marsha, Adam and Eve, they would like to wish you a very Happy Birthday too:

"Adam and Eve giving you the "high five" (plus one).

I plan to chart this sampler in 2014."

That's some pebble that you dropped into the water last year, Nicola! Did you ever imagine the rings would grow this big? :) Thank you for sharing your special year in such a creative, fun way. You are such an inspiration! As a sampler newbie, I have really enjoyed the spirit of your SL blog, and value all that I've learned from you and the other contributors (and, as a blog newbie, a special thanks to Jo for her blog guidance!). Tonight I'm going to open a bottle of wine in your honor, Nicola, and send you hugs and best wishes as you begin your new Scarlet Letter year! Namaste.

Aileen said...

Don't know how many times I have written this in my head, Nicola.
May life shower upon you all the graces and blessings you so graciously share with us. You have been such an inspiration and guide. Bless you, Jo, Marsha and the others for making the magic happen another time around. The
Scarlet Letter Year has made such
a big difference in our days.
