Birthday, the aftermath

Thanks so much for all the  birthday wishes last week. I had an incredible birthday. Beyond incredible. It was flomberstonishing.  (It was so good I had to make up a new word to describe it, see.)

First of all I had a lovely surprise when several dear friends showed up with a cake, balloons, flowers and a gift from my ravelry group. It truly was a surprise; I had no make up on and my house was in a shambles. But it was so nice to see all the lovely people who had taken time out of their day and even took the day off to come make my day special. 

Even more surprising was the gift my friends brought me. Here’s the note that was in the card:


card-insertWhat does one say when gifted with 162 bales of hay? First of all, I couldn’t have been happier with 162 diamonds. This gift, which must have taken weeks to put together, was so beautiful that I am left utterly speechless. Thank you. THANK ALL OF YOU.  You are amazing! I am the luckiest person I know to have such thoughtful friends. 



  1. Wow, what a gift! Those friends of yours really love you and what you do, you my dear, are very rich indeed.

  2. That is like the most amazing gift ever. I am awed by the love the Fiber Farm inspires. Its good to remember that there is so much good will still out there!

  3. It’s just (more) proof that you inspire people and have really created something that has touched so many.

    And only at 39! Imagine what’s to come at 49 and 59!

  4. It was so much fun to get this together…scrambling on the internet! Yes, the fiber farm does inspire, it’s funny how much it brought together a bunch of us who before this only had the fiber crafts in common and now many of us feel like we have been friends forever with each other and with Susie and Erin and Patrick and of course the nannies and their little ones…truly special place, the Farm.

  5. You’re very welcome! I was just glad to be there–because, well, it was FUN!

    (And, what? No picture of the check I made you?) (sniffle)

    Happy birthday again!!

  6. how wonderful!!! This post gave me goosebumps! I’m so glad you had a wonderful birthday! 😀

  7. It was so much fun to put together. I could imagine all these folks of various ages and situations giggling like schoolgirls in front of their monitors as we schemed and connived! I’m just glad I got to be a part of it it was ever so neat. You and Patrick and the boys and Erin and Linda and all the other nannies and ewes and babies have given us each other…and that is the best gift of all

  8. And we are so lucky to know YOU!

  9. incredibly awesome

    lotsa love,

  10. That is so wonderful of them! You must be very gratified to inspire that much caring and devotion in the world.

  11. *mwah* You so deserved this Susie!!!
