Happy Birthday to Me

It's that time again......once more around the sun. I had a lovely day and was very spoilt with gifts, cards and wishes from my family and friends.
Pretty flowers too....
I was very spoilt by my dear friends Fiona and Shez. The birthday grinch who lives with me would not let me open their parcels until "the day" pooper!
But gorgeous surprises inside when I got to finally open them helped by Granddaughter Charlotte.
Beautiful table runner, hand stitched and hand quilted no less from gorgeous! So special!
Looks perfect on my kitchen coffee table.
I just absolutely love it. The sweetest mousey pencil case and pincushion pattern came with it!
LOOOVE! Fiona and Shez know me so well. They know I love art these.
The stunning horse is the work of Shezs friend also called Michelle. Beautiful!
My parcel from Shez contained more spoiling. You may remember Shez making that gorgeous Gingie Chef......well he now lives with me....cue happy gingie  dance. I loved it as soon as I saw it on her blog....sneaky girl! How did she know. He looks so much at home here don't you think?
He is the cutest bloke.....GD and I  loved his moustache.
And I also have a gorgeous project pouch with my very own initial from my Stitchers Alphabet  (Shez knew I would never get around to doing one for myself lol )

Isn't it lovely! Thank you my dear friends for your gorgeous gifts.
You are very naughty but very, very nice xxxxx
I have been stitching.....yes more tags! Boy I just cannot leave them alone!
The latest batch...
They have such beautiful sentiments and I  felt if I could add a couple of my own it would suit me perfectly. The pattern for Ruth's Quilt by Leanne Beasley  provides blank templates for just that I got to and designed two of my won't be at all surprised lol!
So that's me up to date. If you want to pop over to my Art Blog *HERE* there is a new post.
Take care,
Namaste and Blessings Michelle xxx
