Today is my 45th Birthday, and what a wonderful day it's been.
Friends have called in to see me and i've received lots of lovely cards and gifts from family, friends and online ladies too. Some of them were a total surprise. Thank you for your good wishes on the MB's i visit too.
Tonight i'll be off to the stitching club with my basket full of cakes, and also a candle to light in memory of our dear friend Hazel which will burn to celebrate her life for the duration of our meeting.
My brother recently had a holiday in the US and i asked him to see if he could get me the Whitman Tin whilst he was there, he didn't manage to get that but he did get me all this (and yes those Whitman boxes have the chocs inside them ... yummmmmy)
DH bought me a pair of 'love' scissors from Kelmscott and started off my pandora bracelet, he bought me the love charm, the kitty, Leo symbol and the glass bead. DD and her BF chose the present and the four leaf clover and DS chose the fish (he's a keen fisherman!). It's really beautiful and the charms can be collected and added easily when a special occasion comes along.
A box arrived from Karen earlier this week and was duly confiscated by DD, she decided i could not be trusted near it LOL. Karen you really have spoilt me, i know how busy you are and yet you still found the time to stitch me the beautiful ED card and the mirror together with all the other stuff that you enclosed, i felt really spoilt, i love the choccie bar, thats just about how the split goes in this house LOL (please can you come over and vacuum up all the teeny weeny stars that now adorn my conservatory floor!)
Another envelope arrived yesterday and as soon as DH saw Sally's name on it, that was duly hidden too. Thank you Sally for this gorgeous needleroll and fob, the strange thing is i had bought this chart to stitch for the needleroll exchange we did at JA then changed me mind, it really is beautiful, thank you.
When postie came this morning he had an armful of cards and wished me Happy Birthday, such a surprise when i opened these. Rachael sent me such a cute card of a knitted chef holding a cake (i have this pattern in my stash Rachael!) Helen was kind enough to send 2 dragon floss with her card and i am also the proud owner of a Karan creation. Karan also sent a JBW chart with her card. Jan and Fiona have each handmade a card and Kathy over at the east coast has sent me a card and some yellow gingham fabric. Thank you so much ladies. xx
Thank you for making my Birthday a very special day
Love to you all
