I just went along without saying to see what would happen. I will say more some other time. It's snowing again. Big storybook style flakes. I will build a fire, stitch some new eyes, finish straightening out the categories here, make a pizza and maybe even have a glass of wine. But maybe not. I am renewed and ready to begin again.
A very happy birthday dear Jude! May the new year of your life continues to be filled with joy, happiness a d love for the beautiful stitching you do. I was very touched by the words you wrote in the diary… without the date… With love and peace from Cornwall, uk, Brigitte 🌸
Dear Jude, I wish you a very happy birthday. You certainly make me happy every day that I hear from you or see your work. A little dust is okay as long as you’re not allergic. Big love and light xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
Happy Birthday, Jude, fellow Aquarian! You’re looking great!
Happy Birthday to a fellow February child….

Happy birthday to you, Jude, on this the recognition of your seventy years around the sun! Your’e looking good! May you be blessed with baskets, nine patches, moons and an endless supply of threads. Blessings.
You look radiant on your 70th birthday. Congratulations. You’ve had a hard couple of years with your move, Covid and political unrest. Your work will be richer. I think you have a lot of blogging left yet!
we have cauliflower crust pizza on sundays… will be thinking of you! x
cranking up to that particular birthday is a tough one.
but then the next morning you realize you are the same person
but a day wiser
and far less susceptible to doubts.
Hooray for Jude!
Happy Birthday, Jude. Love this piece. Hope you enjoy(ed?) your special day. x
Happy to YOU…..forever and always.
It’s wonderful to hear that you are feeling more renewed and I’m so happy for you. I await another installment of your journey after renewal.
All the very best.
🌞🌛Happy Birthday Jude, 🥳 You are so beautiful at 70! 🌸
I rejoin you in taking joy in the process. Once upon a time I was an architect and I was always entranced during the design process phase of each project, a bit sad when it was all done. Later I taught architecture and I perpetually lived in the joyous world of my students projects, a world full of possibilities and what ifs.
Welcome in the seventies! Wonderful years. Happy birthday to you.
Happy Birthday dearest Jude! Enjoy the day celebrating YOU!
Many blessings on your birthday and every day hereafter
Beautiful Age. Have a Sweet Birthday dear Jude.
Happy, Happy Birthday, Jude
Big, Bold, Bright, Beautiful, Bountiful Birthday Blessings. You are a beacon of self-discovery to me. I will be joining you in the 70’s club this May 15th.
Birthday blessings, my fellow Pisces! I’ll be 68 on Tuesday. Hope you have a quietly wonder-filled day!

Happy Birthday Jude, a toast to you with a glass of red! Enjoy the moment.
Wishing you a very Happy Birthday, Jude! I’m glad you’re warm in the center of your beautiful snowy spot!
I too am a pizza woman. A glass of wine sounds well deserved and fun. You are a gift to us all—on your birthday and always.
I’ll have pizza today to celebrate with you. 🙂 Love this tree, it is strong.

happy birthday jude.
your day is the same day as my mom, who followed you through me. today I’ll think about and honor that for your shared birth day – “movement through”. you have always been the best explainer of that with your work and words…💕
Happy Birthday, love what 70 looks like.
Happy birthday. 70 looks delightful and artistic.
Happy happy birthday!

Have a very HAPPY BIRTHDAY, Jude.
Happy birthday beautiful human. Have a great day, week, month, year, decade. 💙
may the quiet joys of this day remain with you all year long …
Have a wonderful birthday. I did this experiece 2 years ago and it scared me somehow to see this 7! But now I‘m used to it and it still looks a long way to the 8!!
Happy birthday Jude. May it be a good day and even better year.
Happy Birthday jude! Enjoy your day.
Wising you joy on this day along with a reminder of the serenity you have added to my world.
Thanks for saying that. A birthday gift.
welcome to the 70s! I have to say, it’s not bad…I’ve found many of the struggles of other decades just don’t matter any more. Hope your birthday starts a magnificent year!
Yes, so much doesn’t matter, I feel it. I’ve longed for it.
Happy Birthday, Lovey.
Roots of your cloth tree, moving over the edge, a lifetime anchored but also flowing, moving toward whatever matters…that is how we go, embracing each birthday, each decade, just going…pizza and wine are good ways to celebrate this day of your birth. I have cranked up one of my Celia Cruz’s salsa songs and have danced in your honor…she always shouted out Azucar when she began her concerts, Azucar the Spanish word for sugar…so along with your savory, may you have a bit of sweet to this day of your birth as well as a dance or two…Feliz Cumpleanos.
Dancing, yes, there will be that too! Azucar!
YAY happy birthday Jude X ( my god still crossing legs and sitting on floors at 70 be PROUD girl, have a lovely day with the man and soulo )
Trying to stay flexible, in more ways than one!
That you are ! and helping us all to do it too x
Happy Birthday Jude!! You look fantastic, and your work is just as beautiful. Thank you for your blog/electronic communications – they are a feast for the eye and the spirit. Long may you stay inspired!
The moon basket is so lovely. The light in it! Renewed sounds good! Looking forward to joining along with your new beginnings. Enjoy your birthday pizza and (possibly) wine xx
Happy Birthday 🎂 Jude!!
Happy Birthday! The new snow gives everything a fresh coat and a new look, and so does the new day and the new year.
Happy Birthday Jude.
Happy Birthday, Jude! I agree, sometimes (often?) the creative process holds much more beauty than the final product. Thanks for sharing your thoughts and feelings!
Happy Birthday! Love what you wrote today about the “ in process” beauty of the moment…..
Roll with it.
It is hard to learn to let the piece become but it is so important
A symbol for self acceptance.
Happy Birthday 🎉 thank you for the years of sharing your love of art and cloth 🌷 May you have many years ahead and in good health 🌞💙
Happy Birthday Jude! 70 looks darned good!
beautyfull evocative poetry is streaming thru you, and you have sufficient sense to honor it, how
