Some Stitching at Last

Well, sort of! Today I had a lovely day stitching and wiling the day away with very nice friends. It was fun catching up with our returning travellers, solving the worlds issues, talking stitching, laughter and having some delicious treats too. Thank you Robyn P.
I worked on my Splendid Sampler block and almost completed it. I  have 3 finishes.
I still have a few to catch up on....2 of the above are bonus  blocks that I liked.
I  also have some show and tell from friend Monica but will save it for next post.
My birthday is continuing on...which is delightful!
Today the girls spoilt me rotten with these gorgeous gifts. Love my new Fairy Wren teacups, teabags in a gorgeous tin, devine fabrics, threads, buttons and a handy compact iron for caravanning.
Thank you soooo very much Monica, Diane, Robyn and Jan mwah xxx
Last week my dear friend Fiona sent me a delicious parcel of goodies too.
So many pretties to play with. I loved my parcel.  Thank you Fiona xx
Tarnyia from Birthday Club sent me some nice creamies and yummy treats. Don't you just love red ric rac! Thank you Tarnyia.

AND today the postie bought me another giftie, from my lovely friend Cheryl.
I love dragonflies.....such pretty fabric and my fav DMC 816. Thank you Cheryl. So folks feeling truly spoilt rotten around here. Thank you all, gorgeous friends.
"Time spent with a friend over a cuppa is time well spent" I have spent my day very well indeed!
Namaste and Blessings Michelle xxx
