More Special Friends

Well I have been lucky enough to make my birthday last a week - I know, very spoilt.  But mainly because Shez had organised a wonderful day of stitching at her place on Sunday and some more of my lovely friends were there -

Well not much stitching going on here. Did I mention there was lots of talking too.
It was so lovely to catch up with these wonderful girls. We did have fun and Shez had cooked up a storm.  Thankyou my lovely friend for organising this day for me and for all the work you put in.


And she had a lovely goodie bag for each us, with one of her wonderful hand towels and some yummy homemade relish.

And I was spoilt with some beautiful birthday gifts. Karen made me this wonderful zippered sewing pocket - isn't it amazing.  It actually has a clear see-through front, so that is the lining fabric you can see.  It was just beautiful and had inside a very handy red thread and cute little lock and key trinket.
Got very excited when I opened this gorgeous gift from my lovely friend Sue (kiwikids blog).  LOVE vintage kitchen bits and pieces, so a perfect gift Sue, thankyou so much.  Two lovely heart cookie cutters and a herb cutter, all wrapped in a gorgeous piece of fabric with this most beautiful card.  Look wonderful in my kitchen.

And my birthday gifts from Shez included this amazing Christmas light up piece - it is just beautiful - took this piccie at night so you could see the beautiful colors when lit up.  I just love it Shez - thankyou so much. I am very loathe to put it away til xmas. 

And there was lots more - some lovely patterns and this gorgeous apple needlecase in beautiful wool. I had been admiring these on her blog and oohing and aahing.
And this very cute Santa kit and wonderful vintage cake tin - my kitchen is looking wonderful.
And I loved this gorgeous Christmas book from Kerry Swain that Shez also gave me. Full of lovely Christmas sewing and cute little snowmen. Can't wait to start on a project from this.
And look at this gorgeous sewing bag. Just love it -
Lots of zippered pockets and ooh there was some yummy fabric, button, threads and thread holder inside and a yummy block of chocolate hiding in a little secret pocket on the back.  Now that's an idea - grandies won't think to look in there and sustenance on hand while I'm sewing.  Thankyou dear friend for my most amazing pressies and for a lovely day with friends. Cheryl

Hi Cheryl ,so glad you enjoyed your sit and sew day with our friends,it's nice to catch up and to also be able to get some sewing done as well,and it was handy as we didn't have to post your birthday gifts because you were coming for a visit,it's good when we can save on postage,the way the postage is from Ballarat to Stawell you wouldn't get it till next month,lol.
So glad you liked your gifts .
