Easter & Birthday Treats

Kath and I always exchange a little stitched item each Easter and this is the sweet pillow I received this year - so cute and I just love those spotties on the fabric Kath used. Kath also treated me to Scatter Eggs by Shepherds Bush :)

On Friday it was my birthday, goodness that came around way too fast this year. I had a wonderful day and got very spoilt with some great pressies from my family and friends. Glenn and Hannah gave me a lovely heart charm for my Pandora bracelet and a voucher to have a facial, and I also got some money from my parents and in-laws to go shopping!


Kath totally spoilt me with some lovely treats - Blackbird Designs Joyeux Noel (which I'd been wishing for ever since it came out. I think I'd like to stitch every single design in this book, its just gorgeous); a pair of fingerless gloves in my favourite colour;

and a pin cushion by Blackbird Designs, another project that's been on my wish list.

We celebrated my birthday by having a dinner at home on Friday night - it was a perfect day, I even had some quality stitching time, what more could a girl ask for.

Since I'm waiting on a thread order to come from my LNS, My Quaker Lady has been put on hold for the present time. Here's my progress so far:

Its been a gorgeous autumn day here today. This time of the year is my favourite - the days may start off a little bit chilly but we are left with a stunning day, not a cloud in the sky and the sun still has a bit of warmth in it. Our Daylight Savings hours changed over last Sunday so its started getting darker earlier in the evenings but I don't mind as I always think that the evenings seem longer, more time for stitching :)

Have a great week!

And silly Kath forgot to change the date to 2010!!! I so enjoyed stitching that pattern that I am going to stitch it for myself!
A lovely birthday Katrina, and good laughs on Friday night. xx
