Sue was delighted and to say she was surprised is an understatement.....a truly beautiful moment! WARNING! Extremely photo heavy!
The parcel unwrapping...
Now as if that wasn't enough excitement it was also lovely Monica's birthday. Diane made a delicious pumpkin cheesecake to celebrate...I know vegetables and cake! Has to be good for you...there are no photos as it disappeared down lots of little rabbit holes very quickly. Happy Birthday Monica xx
Monica bought some show and tell as she, like the rest of us has been ufoing....I just love this project folder from Faeries in My Garden...
Needless to say it was a wonderful evening of joy, laughter and friendship and we did stitch! I think I just managed to crawl into my bed before the stroke of midnight...what good fun.
I think some quiet stitching may be the order of the day here today.
I shall leave you with a little scribble I wrote in my journal.
