My kid is a teenager!

Yesterday was my daughter Fiona's 13th birthday. We had such a great day, coffee & pastries at Starbucks in Saratoga Springs, NY, then on to X-Men: Days of Future Past at Criterion Cinemas (awesome, by the way & definitely NOT a #MovieToStitchTo). Next we went to Barnes & Noble for a paperback copy of The Fault in Our Stars by John Green which she has been dying to read (which is saying something, as she is not a big reader, unlike me.) Then had dinner at Denny's (I was very good & had a salad- no mozzarella sticks for me). Wilton Mall & Target filled out the day out. At home , after my run/walk, we watched Mean Girls. You can tell our gift cards were burning holes in our pockets!

To commemorate this momentous occasion on teenager-hood, I give you my latest embroidered portrait of my spunky, fabulous daughter.

Embroidered portrait of Fiona in Batman beanie

This portrait has Fiona's stamp of approval because she likes how she looks in this selfie she took.

Happy Stitching,
