Early Birthday Wishes

The postie has been very nice to me the last couple of days bringing me some lovely early birthday gifts from my sweet on line Birthday Club girls. I had asked for anything French General or similiar.
Look at those delicious fabrics....oh yum! I was totally spoilt with extra goodies like gorgeous threads, ric rac, stickers for my journalling, a beautiful soft crocheted cloth, sweet tin with a beautiful skein of Threadworx thread inside and how cute is that reindeer button. Thank you Maria, Sisababe and Tracee....feeling extremely spolit here. I am dreaming about that FG fabric already.
I have also been rather spoilt to lovely lasses in my Wednesday night stitching group.
My friend Jan knows I just about wipe out the DMC 816 peg wherever I go so she has gifted me lots of skeins of gorgeous 816 as well as some hand quilting needles and a lovely "Ann" card. Thank you Jan xx
Robyn P. (we have two) surprised me with these gorgeous matching placemats, coasters and teatowel.
This one is only for the "good" china drying up! Thank you Robyn I love them.
I feel very blessed and for a girl who never liked celebrating her birthday, heartfelt wishes from lovely friends have changed all that.
Now as for stitching I have started a new little magazine project for later in the year....want a peek???
All I can tell you is that I have been dabbling a little with some embroidery and a few roses.
 That's all folks! I wish you all a lovely weekend and I hope you find a little stitching time too.
Namaste and blessings,
Michelle xxx
