Some Birthday Spoiling

Well as some of you may know I have had a "special" birthday this week.  I don't know about the getting older bit, but I have been overwhelmed by all the "surprises" from my gorgeous friends and family,  I have a feeling Shez may have had a hand in some of it lol.  Anyway thought you might like to see some of my gorgeous goodies - will show you in the order of opening (must admit some before my birthday - temptation got too much)

From my gorgeous friend Karen in Qld (whom I will soon get to meet yippee)
A beautiful needlecase which is perfect size to just pick up on your way out the door in case you have some sewing time, the most gorgeous stitched pincushion at the top (and sorry I've chopped off its cute leaves - it's a little strawberry), a snowman button, some beautiful glass headed pins and I see I have also chopped off the scissor keep which is the cutest little teapot.
Karen also made me this gorgeous little rabbit drawstring bag and it was filled with some delicious choccy eggs - there is still a couple in there lol

And there was more - can't believe how much she spoilt me.  The most beautiful stitched pear tea towel (there is something about pears isn't there) and a gorgeous Christmas cushion pattern and little snowman  button from Lynette Anderson Designs.

And not one but two gorgeous wallhangings.
Aren't they both beautiful  They are already hanging on my walls.  Thankyou so much dear friend. It was the most amazing special parcel.

The next one I opened was from another gorgeous friend - Michelle from Rag-Tag Stitchin' -
How special is this beautiful wallhanging.  And Michelle had also included one of her new mini pocket patterns - my favourite stitching - Christmas. 

And I could not believe my eyes when I opened the next one -

a beautiful Michelle original. How gorgeous is "Merle".  I can't believe Michelle could part with her, but think she knows that I will treasure her.

Thankyou to two of my dear friends.  Now I will leave some more til next post.  Don't want to wear you out - more gorgeous gifts from just as gorgeous friends.  Cheryl
