Thank you

Thank you to everyone for your birthday wishes, ecards, cards and gifts. I had a lovely day on Sunday and got very spoilt by my family and friends with some wonderful gifts including some money which of course I intend to spend on some new stash :)

Karen sent me these lovely goodies - a gorgeous smelling candle, piece of fabric and two lovely postcards that have little sampler patterns on them. Thanks again Karen.

From the little kiwi group, the "Doris" ladies (aka Kath, Lisa, Pat and Wendy) I received one of my favourite body products, body butter and a fat 1/4 of a lovely green fabric - thanks ladies :)

It was a very good mail day yesterday as I also received a parcel from Barb in the US for the recent Shepherds Bush BB exchange. I received a gorgeous fob, so delicately stitched, some sampler threads and a small piece of R and R Reproductions linen.

I spent my birthday having coffee with friends in the morning, meeting up with friends for lunch in town, and then at stitching group in the afternoon. Glenn and I went to my parents Sunday night where we had a lovely family dinner with my brother, who also celebrated his birthday recently ( the big 30) and my niece.

so now for some stitching pics: ta da! I finished Welcome Spot by the Drawn Thread on Thursday night.

Stitched on 28ct Taupe Cashel linen using DMC threads and Needle Necessities.

I loved stitching this spot and its now with my friend to be framed in time for the exhibition. This week for the SAL with Cathy, Von and Kath I hope to start Spot of Spring, the last of the spots I have left to stitch.

I realised the other day that I hadn't shared a progress pic of the Mermaids of the Deep Blue in quite some time. I have only the beading left to do now, yay!

Enjoy your day/evening!

What a nice birthday haul. :) Sounds like you had a lovely birthday.

Your pieces look beautiful. I fondled some of the cashel linen last week at the LNS. It's yummy.

Have a wonderful day.

Hmmm, I recognize that TCSP label (well okay, not that exact one...) One of my favorite shops in the Chicago area. If you ever get to visit here, you MUST shop there!
