Hello Illene,

Jules said...

That is a beautiful idea Illeene. I am sure many have been thinking about you a lot.
So sorry that your road is hard and tough ((((((((( you)))))))))).
Using your birthday to celebrate the good things in your life is a lovely positive.

Cyndi said...

I was just thinking of you yesterday, Illene, and noticing that you had been "absent". I am so sorry that you are having a rough time right now...I will definitely be lifting you up in prayer!

That little angel is precious - I love the lilac color. And just in case that I forget (as I am apt to do) to come back and wish you a happy birthday on your day, here is an early wish - Happiest of Birthdays and may all your troubles disappear and never return!

Take good care!

Hi Illene, have been thinking of you lately and sorry to hear things aren't good. I hope you have a wonderful birthday on the 29th and I hope you get to celebrate it in style. Lots of hugs being sent your way as always xx

Sorry things have not been going well. Hopefully life
will improve and you will be able to celebrate on the 29th. I love birthdays and the celebration of life and to know that I made it through another year and have a new one to look forward to. Your angel is darling and I would love to win her. Nola

Jill said...

Hi Illene, was wondering if everything was okay as you had been absent. This angel is gorgeous. Purple was my mum's favourite colour so I have nicknamed her 'Elaine the Angel'. Happy Birthday for the 29th! Jill xx

Hi Sorry to hear life has been giving you a hard time, just happens doesn't it? Your angel is gorgous, beautiful colours. I love angels and beading and the two go together so well. I really love your quilt, it reminds me of my grandad who used to work with horses back in the 1920's.
happy birthday for the 29th.

Loralynn said...

I'm sending you hugs for your birthday and just because! I know how you feel about the not wanting to post lately, I haven't done much of that myself. I seem to have run out of steam. Know that I think of you often and send prayers/positive energy your way!
