Very, very excited about all of the sampler enthusiasm — thank you so much! I am thrilled. We will talk!

It's my birthday tomorrow, so I made myself a wee little birthday cake. And took a big huge picture of it. :-)


The cake looks delicious and I especially love how you decorated it. Happy, Happy Birthday for tomorrow! January 7th was my granny's birthday too, and she was amazing, just as you are.

Happy birthday, Alicia! I hope that your special day is as special as you are!!

happy birthday to a fellow capricorn! (although i don't think either of us are very capricorn-ish, do you?) the cake is as perfect as can be--inspired!

i loved the cross stitch sampler too. i'm surprised people are intimidated by counted cross stitch but perhaps they'll get over that fear with your new pattern.

That's so pretty! Happy Birthday!!

That truly is a thing of beauty. Warmest wishes on your birthday. Vicki

Are cakes even allowed to look that adora-gorgeous?
Well done.
You are on your way to birthday celebratory glory!
Sending you wishes for a very happy day, followed many happy years!

Happy, Happy Birthday Alicia! You are amazing, that's all I can say! You inspire me so! And I do LOVE counted cross stitch! Enjoy your special day...for a very special person...YOU! God bless you. xoxox

Happy Birthday! Beautiful cake. I recognize the Hersey's dark chocolate cake and cloud icing because I made the same cake for my Dad's birthday last month. Absolutely delicious. Your toppings are very cute. Have a wonderful day!

Okay, that cake really blows the cranberry clafouti I made myself for my birthday (last week) out of the water. Happy Birthday! Celebrate well.

That cake is fantastically gorgeous! Have a wonderful birthday!

HaPPy Birthday to you :)
