Happy 50th Birthday Jo
Jo has given each of us some facts about herself from particular years .... my year is 2011 - when Jo was 45, and she has asked that we give some detail about ourselves for that allotted year, and also to show some stitching we think she might like!
These are the facts Jo has given me of her life from 2011:
- This was the year it all took off for Jo and her stitching! In April, she took the plunge and started her own blog. Earlier in the year she started a rotation of sorts and for the first time had more than one active WIP. Jo was still very active on the stitching forums too, joining some Yahoo groups as well as the Yuku forums. She also started the first of her very popular Blog Hops with the Christmas Advent Calendar.
- As the music venue her husband had run had been closed for a while Jo decided to look for a temporary job over Christmas. She asked a friend who managed a bookshop if there were any Christmas jobs going. Jo's timing was perfect and there was a permanent ten hours a week; weekdays during school hours. Jo applied for and got the job, starting a new career as a Children's Bookseller.
In that same year I competed in singles competitions and won my Surrey County Badge for Bowls, and went on to play in team games for the county. In the picture below I was playing a singles club competition .... I seem to remember I came second in this particular game ..... you can't win them all!
I don't play any more. I gave it up as my back was giving me a lot of trouble.
So, I hope you will all join me in wishing Jo every happiness on her landmark birthday:
Happy 50th Birthday
