Birthday Spoiling

Well the years sure do go quick as we get older, and another birthday came round this week. Can't be 12 months surely lol.  Did get very spoilt by some very special people in my life -

From lovely Barb this beautifully stitched teddy - she is such a cutie Barb. I just love it - thankyou so much.


She has some lovely company on my mantle - my treasured drawing from Michelle.
And my wonderful friend Karen and I have our birthdays close.  She always spoils me with the most gorgeous gifts and this year is no exception.  Think she must have heard me say I was desperate for some new cushions for my couch.  Of course no-one's allowed to sit on it - way too cute.
She's also a beautiful cross stitcher and knows I have a "thing" for pincushions.  It's just beautiful Karen.  And there was some very yummy fabrics and this gorgeous pattern.
Close-up of the pattern. A Lynette Anderson design - I have it traced, ready to start
And there was more - this beautiful handcream and gorgeous handmade soaps (wish you could smell) and some divine buttons.  Thankyou my gorgeous friend - loved my gorgeous gift to bits.

And from my gorgeous friend Michelle, this very sweet pattern, which will be stitched very soon, a beautiful piece of Kim Diehl fabric (love it) and the cutest tissues for my handbag.  Was so beautifully wrapped and all matching.  Thankyou for spoiling me - loved my beautiful gifts.

And thankyou too to all my wonderful friends for all your wonderful messages today. I was so very overwhelmed and made my day the best.  And to my dearest Keryn - your phone call made my day.
